Sendmail Administration
two scripts that can help administer a mail server that uses the sendmail.

This package provides two scripts that can help administer a mail server that uses the sendmail Mail Transport Agent (MTA). mailqs reads the output from sendmail's mailq(8) command and summarizes each queue entry, one entry per line. As such, its output is more easily consumed by other scripts. rmmq is a convenience command for removing items from a sendmail queue. When you run mailq(8) or mailqs, you get a list of sendmail queue IDs. These queue IDs map to several files in a sendmail queue directory. This command automatically maps the queue IDs to the files and removes them for you.
