Inspecting and managing the queue
|This article/section is a stub — probably a pile of half-sorted notes, is not well-checked so may have incorrect bits. (Feel free to ignore, fix, or tell me)|
Inspect the queue (descriptions only):
Peek at mail:
postcat -q QueueID
postsuper -d QueueID
or a queue references:
postsuper -d deferred postsuper -d ALL
I have a script containing:
for queueid in `mailq | egrep '^[A-Z0-9]' | cut -d ' ' -f 1 | tr '\n' ' '`; do echo echo echo echo "------------------ "$queueid echo postcat -q $queueid done
Error writing message: File too large
A postfix error that occurs when a user's mailbox is full.
Regularly caused by cronjob output, particularly when you get long and frequent email reports.
mailbox_size_limit and virtual_mailbox_limit may be relevant.
You can use
postconf | egrep '(mailbox_size_limit|virtual_mailbox_limit)'
...to see what size they are currently set at, which is probably 50MB.
Set this to a higher limit (in your .cf files), or even to 0 to remove limits.
