POSTKICK(1)                                                        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 accessible for use in, for exam-
       ple, 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. Mul-
              tiple  -v  options  make  the software increasingly
              verbose.

       Arguments:

       class  Name of a class of  local  transport  channel  end-
              points,  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
