how can I que mail on my postfix system while I work on the backend mail servers?
What exactly do you want to do?
I have 2 mx servers running postfix/postgrey/blacklist/userauth
they then pass to my Barracuda spam/virus servers
A few times while the Barracuda tech support has been checking the systems/doing maintainence they wiped out our settings and mail was bounced.
I want to not transport the mail to the barracuda's while they are working on it. and just HOLD the mail on my MX servers untill they are done.
What would be a good way to do this?
increase que time?
remove the entry in the transport file temporarily?
You can put mails into the HOLD queue with the poatsuper command: http://www.linuxcommand.org/man_pages/postsuper1.html
But I'm not sure if that affects only mails that are already in the queue, or also new mails.
That looks like it will work perfect Falko thanks
then I can just do a postsuper -H ALL to release
thanks a ton
I spoke to soon
That took a current incoming que and stoped it.. then proceeded to continue to send new messages to the Barracuda's
Any other ideas?
As I said:
Separate names with a comma.
