NAME

       postcat - show Postfix queue file contents

SYNOPSIS

       postcat [-bdehnoqv] [-c config_dir] [files...]

DESCRIPTION

       The  postcat(1) command prints the contents of the named files in human-readable form. The
       files are expected to be in Postfix queue file format. If no files are  specified  on  the
       command line, the program reads from standard input.

       By default, postcat(1) shows the envelope and message content, as if the options -beh were
       specified. To view message content only, specify -bh (Postfix 2.7 and later).

       Options:

       -b     Show body content.  The -b option starts producing output at the  first  non-header
              line, and stops when the end of the message is reached.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.7 and later.

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

       -d     Print the decimal type of each record.

       -e     Show message envelope content.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.7 and later.

       -h     Show message header content.  The -h option produces output from the  beginning  of
              the message up to, but not including, the first non-header line.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.7 and later.

       -o     Print the queue file offset of each record.

       -q     Search the Postfix queue for the named files instead of taking the names literally.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.0 and later.

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