Managing Qmail mail queues

© March 2005 Tony Lawrence

Bob sent me this link: qmhandle

Qmhandle is a Perl script that makes it easier to manage a Qmail queue - if you want to see the hard way, look at Triple Threat which shows how to do it semi-manually.

I haven't tried this out yet, but Bob has, and he says it works well. The docs say that you can:

* Read the qmail queue, like you do with the qmail-qread program. However, the output of this program is improved over qmail-qread, with the output of the message subjects and color capabilities.

* Print queue statistics, like qmail-qstat, with color capabilities

* View a message in the queue.

* Remove one or more messages from the queue.

* Force qmail to send queued messages immediately.

Useful tool..
