 NAME
      mailq - prints the mail queue

 SYNOPSIS
      mailq [-v]

 DESCRIPTION
      mailq prints a summary of the mail messages queued for future
      delivery.

      The first line printed for each message shows the internal identifier
      used on this host for the message, the size of the message in bytes,
      the date and time the message was accepted into the queue, and the
      envelope sender of the message.  The second line shows the error
      message that caused this message to be retained in the queue; it will
      not be present if the message is being processed for the first time.
      The following lines show message recipients, one per line.

      mailq is identical to sendmail -bp.

      The options are as follows:

    Options
      -v      Print verbose information.  This adds the priority of the
	      message and a single character indicator (``+'' or blank)
	      indicating whether a warning message has been sent on the
	      first line of the message.  Additionally, extra lines may be
	      intermixed with the recipients indicating the ``controlling
	      user'' information; this shows who will own any programs that
	      are executed on behalf of this message and the name of the
	      alias this command expanded from, if any.

 RETURN VALUE
      The mailq utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

 AUTHOR
      mailq was developed by the University of California, Berkeley, and
      originally appeared in 4.0BSD.
