NAME

  mailq	- Displays the contents	of the mail queue

SYNOPSIS

  mailq	[-v]

DESCRIPTION

  The mailq command displays a list of messages	in the mail queue.  The	mailq
  command is the same as the sendmail command with the -bp option; see send-
  mail for more	information.

EXAMPLES

   1.  The mailq command lists the mail	queue as shown in the following	exam-
       ple:
		    Mail Queue (1 request)
	    --QID---	    -Size-  ---Q-Time-------	    --Sender/Recipient---
	    AA002508	      3	    Thu	Dec 17 10:01		    root

   2.  The mailq -v command lists the mail queue as shown in the following
       example:
		    Mail Queue (1 request)
	    --QID---	    -Size-  -Priority-	    ---Q-Time----   -Sender/Recipient-
	    AA002508	      3	    1005	    Dec	17 10:01	    root

       (Output might be	formatted differently on your system.)

       The fields have the following meaning:

       QID Contains the	message	queue ID of the	message.

       Q-Time
	   Contains the	date that the message entered the queue.

       Sender/Recipient
	   Contains the	user ID	of the sender (first), and then	the user ID
	   of the receiver of the message.  In this example, a message also
	   indicates the status	of the message.
