NAME

postkick – kick a Postfix service

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The postkick 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
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
