NAME
       mailq - print the mail queue

SYNOPSIS
       mailq [-Ac] [-q...]  [-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 with a possible status character, 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 status characters are	 either	 *  to
       indicate the job is being processed; X to indicate that the load is too
       high to process the job; and - to indicate that the job is too young to
       process.	 The following lines show message recipients, one per line.

       Mailq is identical to ''sendmail -bp''.

       The relevant options are as follows:

       -Ac    Show  the mail submission queue specified in /etc/mail/submit.cf
	      instead of the MTA queue specified in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf.

       -qL    Show the "lost" items in the mail queue instead  of  the	normal
	      queue items.

       -qQ    Show the quarantined items in the mail queue instead of the nor-
	      mal queue items.

       -q[!]I substr
	      Limit processed jobs to those containing substr as  a  substring
	      of the queue id or not when !  is specified.

       -q[!]Q substr
	      Limit  processed jobs to quarantined jobs containing substr as a
	      substring of the quarantine reason or not when !	is  specified.

       -q[!]R substr
	      Limit  processed	jobs to those containing substr as a substring
	      of one of the recipients or not when !  is specified.

       -q[!]S substr
	      Limit processed jobs to those containing substr as  a  substring
	      of the sender or not when !  is specified.

       -v     Print  verbose  information.  This adds the priority of the mes-
	      sage and a single character indicator (''+'' or blank)  indicat-
	      ing 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.  Moreover, status messages for each recipient  are
	      printed if available.

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