POSTCAT(1)                                                          POSTCAT(1)

       postcat - show Postfix queue file contents

       <b>postcat</b> [<b>-bdehnoqv</b>] [<b>-c</b> <i>config</i><b>_</b><i>dir</i>] [<i>files</i>...]

       The  <a href="postcat.1.html"><b>postcat</b>(1)</a>  command  prints the contents of the named
       <i>files</i> in human-readable form. The files are expected to be
       in Postfix queue file format. If no <i>files</i> are specified on
       the command line, the program reads from standard input.

       By default, <a href="postcat.1.html"><b>postcat</b>(1)</a> shows the envelope and message con-
       tent,  as if the options <b>-beh</b> were specified. To view mes-
       sage content only, specify <b>-bh</b> (Postfix 2.7 and later).


       <b>-b</b>     Show body content.  The <b>-b</b> option starts  producing
              output at the first non-header line, and stops when
              the end of the message is reached.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.7 and later.

       <b>-c</b> <i>config</i><b>_</b><i>dir</i>
              The  <a href="postconf.5.html"><b></b></a>  configuration  file  is  in the named
              directory  instead  of  the  default  configuration

       <b>-d</b>     Print the decimal type of each record.

       <b>-e</b>     Show message envelope content.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.7 and later.

       <b>-h</b>     Show message header content.  The  <b>-h</b>  option  pro-
              duces  output  from the beginning of the message up
              to, but not including, the first non-header line.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.7 and later.

       <b>-o</b>     Print the queue file offset of each record.

       <b>-q</b>     Search  the  Postfix  queue  for  the  named  <i>files</i>
              instead of taking the names literally.

              This feature is available in Postfix 2.0 and later.

       <b>-v</b>     Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes. Mul-
              tiple <b>-v</b> options  make  the  software  increasingly
