POSTKICK(1)                 General Commands Manual                POSTKICK(1)




NAME
       postkick - kick a Postfix service

SYNOPSIS
       postkick [-c config_dir] [-v] class service request

DESCRIPTION
       The postkick(1) command sends request to the specified service over a
       local transport channel.  This command makes Postfix private IPC
       accessible for use in, for example, shell scripts.

       Options:

       -c config_dir
              Read the main.cf configuration file in the named directory
              instead of the default configuration directory.

       -v     Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes. Multiple -v
              options make the software increasingly verbose.

       Arguments:

       class  Name of a class of local transport channel endpoints, either
              public (accessible by any local user) or private (administrative
              access only).

       service
              The name of a local transport endpoint within the named class.

       request
              A string. The list of valid requests is service-specific.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to the standard error stream.

ENVIRONMENT

       MAIL_CONFIG
              Directory with Postfix configuration files.

       MAIL_VERBOSE
              Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes.

              How long the postkick(1) command waits for a request to enter
              the Postfix daemon process input buffer before giving up.

              The location of the Postfix top-level queue directory.
