Because I understood that the private showq (in master.cf) stops even root from seeing the queue: Quoting brett: "take a look at the private setting for the showq command in /etc/postfix/master.cf. of course, this will stop everybody (including root) from seeing the mail queue since the showq daemon will run without privilege. - brett" OK, this time I tested it (set showq to private in master.cf) (with postfix-20010228pl05 though): As root: mailq: warning: Mail system is down -- accessing queue directly Mail queue is empty As normal user: mailq: fatal: Queue report unavailable - mail system is down Seems to do the job: Well I'd prefer a different error message ;) > To me, the problem with it is that it remains possible to flush the > queue.

I browsed the postfix mailinlist archives and there was some discussion about restricting mailq/flushing the queue. I got the impression that Wietse might implement the feature if people convince to him that it's necessary. -Jarno -- Jarno Huuskonen - System Administrator | Jarno.Huuskonen@....fi University of Kuopio - Computer Center | Work: +358 17 162822 PO BOX 1627, 70211 Kuopio, Finland | Mobile: +358 40 5388169
