POSTCAT(1)							    POSTCAT(1)

       postcat - show Postfix queue file contents

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

       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).


       -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

	      This feature is available in Postfix 2.7 and later.

       -c config_dir

	      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.

       Problems are reported to the standard error stream.
