POSTCAT(1)		    General Commands Manual		    POSTCAT(1)

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  for-
       mat.  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  op-
	      tions make the software increasingly verbose.
