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
	      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
