    Command:

    pickup

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           pickup [generic Postfix daemon options]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  pickup(8)  daemon  waits  for hints that new mail has been dropped
           into the maildrop directory, and feeds it into the  cleanup(8)  daemon.
           Ill-formatted files are deleted without notifying the originator.  This
           program expects to be run from the master(8) process manager.
    
    
    

    STANDARDS

           None. The pickup(8) daemon does not interact with the outside world.
    
    
    

    SECURITY

           The pickup(8) daemon is moderately security  sensitive.  It  runs  with
           fixed  low  privilege  and can run in a chrooted environment.  However,
           the program reads files from potentially hostile users.  The  pickup(8)
           daemon opens no files for writing, is careful about what files it opens
           for reading, and does not actually touch any data that is sent  to  its
           public service endpoint.
    
    
    

    DIAGNOSTICS

           Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).
    
    
    

    BUGS

           The  pickup(8)  daemon  copies mail from file to the cleanup(8) daemon.
           It could avoid message copying overhead by sending  a  file  descriptor
           instead  of  file  data, but then the already complex cleanup(8) daemon
           would have to deal with unfiltered user data.
    
    
    

    CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS

           As the pickup(8) daemon is a relatively long-running process, up to  an
           hour  may  pass  before a main.cf change takes effect.  Use the command
           "postfix reload" command 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)
                  The name of a mail delivery transport that filters mail after it
                  is queued.
    
           receive_override_options (empty)
                  Enable or disable recipient validation, built-in content filter-
                  ing, or address mapping.
    
    
    

    MISCELLANEOUS CONTROLS

           config_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
                  The  default  location of the Postfix main.cf and master.cf con-
                  figuration files.
    
           ipc_timeout (3600s)
    
           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.
    
           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".
