QMQPD(8)							      QMQPD(8)

NAME
       qmqpd - Postfix QMQP server

SYNOPSIS
       qmqpd [generic Postfix daemon options]

DESCRIPTION
       The Postfix QMQP server receives one message per connection.  Each mes‐
       sage is piped through the cleanup(8) daemon, and	 is  placed  into  the
       incoming queue as one single queue file.	 The program expects to be run
       from the master(8) process manager.

       The QMQP server implements one access policy:  only  explicitly	autho‐
       rized client hosts are allowed to use the service.

SECURITY
       The  QMQP  server  is  moderately  security-sensitive. It talks to QMQP
       clients and to DNS servers on the network. The QMQP server can  be  run
       chrooted at fixed low privilege.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).

BUGS
       The  QMQP protocol provides only one server reply per message delivery.
       It is therefore not possible to reject individual recipients.

       The QMQP protocol requires the server to	 receive  the  entire  message
       before  replying. If a message is malformed, or if any netstring compo‐
       nent is longer than acceptable, Postfix replies immediately and	closes
       the connection. It is left up to the client to handle the situation.

CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       Changes	to  main.cf are picked up automatically, as qmqpd(8) processes
       run for only a limited amount of time. Use the command "postfix reload"
       to speed up a change.

       The  text  below provides only a parameter summary. See postconf(5) for
       more details including examples.

CONTENT INSPECTION CONTROLS
       content_filter (empty)

	      specified transport:destination.

       receive_override_options (empty)
	      Enable or disable recipient validation, built-in content filter‐
	      ing, or address mapping.

RESOURCE AND RATE CONTROLS
       line_length_limit (2048)
	      Upon input, long lines are chopped up into  pieces  of  at  most
	      this length; upon delivery, long lines are reconstructed.

       hopcount_limit (50)
	      The maximal number of Received:  message headers that is allowed
	      in the primary message headers.

       message_size_limit (10240000)
	      The maximal size in  bytes  of  a	 message,  including  envelope
	      information.

       qmqpd_timeout (300s)
	      The  time	 limit	for  sending or receiving information over the
	      network.

TROUBLE SHOOTING CONTROLS
       debug_peer_level (2)
	      The increment in verbose logging level when a remote  client  or
	      server matches a pattern in the debug_peer_list parameter.

       debug_peer_list (empty)
	      Optional	list  of  remote  client or server hostname or network
	      address  patterns	 that  cause  the  verbose  logging  level  to
	      increase by the amount specified in $debug_peer_level.

       soft_bounce (no)
	      Safety  net to keep mail queued that would otherwise be returned
	      to the sender.

TARPIT CONTROLS
       qmqpd_error_delay (1s)
	      How long the QMQP server will pause before  sending  a  negative
	      reply to the client.

MISCELLANEOUS CONTROLS
       config_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The  default  location of the Postfix main.cf and master.cf con‐
	      figuration files.

       daemon_timeout (18000s)
	      How much time a Postfix daemon process  may  take	 to  handle  a
	      request before it is terminated by a built-in watchdog timer.

       ipc_timeout (3600s)
	      The  time	 limit	for  sending  or receiving information over an
	      internal communication channel.

       max_idle (100s)
	      The maximum amount of time that an idle Postfix  daemon  process
	      waits for an incoming connection before terminating voluntarily.

       max_use (100)
	      The maximal number of incoming connections that a Postfix daemon
	      process will service before terminating voluntarily.

       process_id (read-only)
	      The process ID of a Postfix command or daemon process.

       process_name (read-only)
	      The process name of a Postfix command or daemon process.

       qmqpd_authorized_clients (empty)
	      What clients are allowed to connect to the QMQP server port.

       queue_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The location of the Postfix top-level queue directory.

       syslog_facility (mail)
	      The syslog facility of Postfix logging.

       syslog_name (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The mail system name that is prepended to the  process  name  in
	      syslog  records,	so  that  "smtpd" becomes, for example, "post‐
	      fix/smtpd".

       verp_delimiter_filter (-=+)
	      The characters Postfix accepts as VERP delimiter	characters  on
	      the Postfix sendmail(1) command line and in SMTP commands.

       Available in Postfix version 2.5 and later:

       qmqpd_client_port_logging (no)
	      Enable logging of the remote QMQP client port in addition to the
	      hostname and IP address.
