    Command:

    postdrop

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           postdrop [-rv] [-c config_dir]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  postdrop(1)  command  creates a file in the maildrop directory and
           copies its standard input to the file.
    
           Options:
    
           -c config_dir
                  The main.cf configuration file is in the named directory instead
                  of the default configuration directory. See also the MAIL_CONFIG
                  environment setting below.
    
           -r     Use a Postfix-internal protocol for  reading  the  message  from
                  standard input, and for reporting status information on standard
                  output. This is currently the only supported method.
    
           -v     Enable verbose  logging  for  debugging  purposes.  Multiple  -v
                  options  make  the  software increasingly verbose. As of Postfix
                  2.3, this option is available for the super-user only.
    
    
    

    SECURITY

           The command is designed to run with set-group ID privileges, so that it
           can write to the maildrop queue directory and so that it can connect to
           Postfix daemon processes.
    
    
    

    DIAGNOSTICS

           Fatal errors: malformed input, I/O error, out of memory.  Problems  are
           logged  to syslogd(8) and to the standard error stream.  When the input
           is incomplete, or when the process receives a HUP, INT,  QUIT  or  TERM
           signal, the queue file is deleted.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

           MAIL_CONFIG
                  Directory  with the main.cf file. In order to avoid exploitation
                  of set-group ID privileges, a non-standard directory is  allowed
                  only if:
    
                  ?      The  name is listed in the standard main.cf file with the
                         alternate_config_directories configuration parameter.
    
                  ?      The command is invoked by the super-user.
    
    
    

    CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS

           The following main.cf parameters are especially relevant to  this  pro-
           gram.   The  text  below  provides  only a parameter summary. See post-
           conf(5) for more details including examples.
    
           alternate_config_directories (empty)
                  A list of non-default Postfix configuration directories that may
                  be  specified with "-c config_directory" on the command line, or
                  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".
    
           trigger_timeout (10s)
                  The time limit for sending a trigger to a  Postfix  daemon  (for
                  example, the pickup(8) or qmgr(8) daemon).
    
           Available in Postfix version 2.2 and later:
    
           authorized_submit_users (static:anyone)
                  List  of  users who are authorized to submit mail with the send-
                  mail(1) command (and with the privileged postdrop(1) helper com-
                  mand).
    
    
    

    FILES

           /var/spool/postfix/maildrop, maildrop queue
