MAILSTATS(1)               OpenBSD Reference Manual               MAILSTATS(1)

     mailstats - display mail statistics

     mailstats [-c] [-o] [-p] [-P] [-C cffile] [-f stfile]

     The mailstats utility displays the current mail statistics.

     First, the time at which statistics started being kept is displayed, in
     the format specified by ctime(3).  Then, the statistics for each mailer
     are displayed on a single line, each with the following whitespace sepa-
     rated fields:

           M           The mailer number.
           msgsfr      Number of messages from the mailer.
           bytes_from  Kbytes from the mailer.
           msgsto      Number of messages to the mailer.
           bytes_to    Kbytes to the mailer.
           msgsrej     Number of messages rejected.
           msgsdis     Number of messages discarded.
           msgsqur     Number of messages quarantined.
           Mailer      The name of the mailer.

     After this display, a line totaling the values for all of the mailers is
     displayed (preceded with a ``T''), separated from the previous informa-
     tion by a line containing only equals (``='') characters.  Another line
     preceded with a ``C'' lists the number of TCP connections.

     The options are as follows:

     -C      Read the specified file instead of the default sendmail configu-
             ration file.

     -c      Try to use submit.cf instead of the default sendmail configura-
             tion file.

     -f      Read the specified statistics file instead of the statistics file
             specified in the sendmail configuration file.

     -p      Output information in program-readable mode and clear statistics.

     -P      Output information in program-readable mode without clearing

     -o      Don't display the name of the mailer in the output.

     The mailstats utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

     /etc/mail/sendmail.cf   The default sendmail ``cf'' file.
     /var/log/sendmail.st    The default sendmail statistics file.

     mailq(8), sendmail(8)
