Delete all Messages From Your Postfix Queue

by @ 4:24 pm. Filed under How-To, Linux tips

Time for a quick tip regarding Postfix. It beats Exchange, hands-down.

OK, that’s not really my tip (unless you didn’t already know that).

I use Postfix. I host a family mailing list on my server. My parents’ siblings love to send large amounts of email messages with large attachments to said family mailing list. This caused my server much headache today.

Basically, all I had to do was delete the messages from the Postfix queue and I was all good.

If you ever have this need, the simple command:

postsuper -d ALL

will delete all the messages from the queue. Yes, this is a little brutal, so if you want to delete only certain kinds of messages, read the man page and it will explain everything to you.

So there’s my tip of the day.
