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	acces-
       sible for use in, for example, shell scripts.

       Options:

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

       -v     Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes. Multiple  -v  op-
	      tions 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.

	      The  list	 of  environment  parameters that a privileged Postfix
