QMQPD(8)                                                              QMQPD(8)
NAME
       qmqpd - Postfix QMQP server
SYNOPSIS
       qmqpd [generic Postfix daemon options]
DESCRIPTION
       The  Postfix  QMQP server receives one message per connec-
       tion.  Each message is piped through the  cleanup(8)  dae-
       mon,  and  is placed into the incoming queue as one single
       queue file.  The program expects to be run from  the  mas-
       ter(8) process manager.
       The QMQP server implements one access policy: only explic-
       itly authorized client hosts are allowed to use  the  ser-
       vice.
SECURITY
       The QMQP server is moderately security-sensitive. It talks
       to QMQP clients and to DNS servers  on  the  network.  The
       QMQP server can be run chrooted at fixed low privilege.
DIAGNOSTICS
       Problems and transactions are logged to syslogd(8).
BUGS
       The  QMQP protocol provides only one server reply per mes-
       sage delivery. It is  therefore  not  possible  to  reject
       individual recipients.
       The  QMQP  protocol  requires  the  server  to receive the
       entire message before replying. If a message is malformed,
       or  if  any netstring component is longer than acceptable,
       Postfix replies immediately and closes the connection.  It
       is left up to the client to handle the situation.
CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
       Changes   to  main.cf  are  picked  up  automatically,  as
       qmqpd(8) processes run for only a limited amount of  time.
       Use the command "postfix reload" to speed up a change.
       The  text  below  provides  only  a parameter summary. See
       postconf(5) for more details including examples.
CONTENT INSPECTION CONTROLS
       content_filter (empty)
              After the message is queued, send the  entire  mes-
              sage to the specified transport:destination.

RESOURCE AND RATE CONTROLS
       line_length_limit (2048)
              Upon input, long lines are chopped up  into  pieces
              of  at  most this length; upon delivery, long lines
              are reconstructed.
       hopcount_limit (50)
              The maximal number of  Received:   message  headers
              that is allowed in the primary message headers.
       message_size_limit (10240000)
              The  maximal  size in bytes of a message, including
              envelope information.
       qmqpd_timeout (300s)
              The time limit for sending or receiving information
              over the network.
TROUBLE SHOOTING CONTROLS
       debug_peer_level (2)
              The  increment  in  verbose  logging  level  when a
              remote client or server matches a  pattern  in  the
              debug_peer_list parameter.
       debug_peer_list (empty)
              Optional  list  of remote client or server hostname
              or network address patterns that cause the  verbose
              logging  level  to increase by the amount specified
              in $debug_peer_level.
       soft_bounce (no)
              Safety net to keep mail queued that would otherwise
              be returned to the sender.
TARPIT CONTROLS
       qmqpd_error_delay (1s)
              How  long the QMQP server will pause before sending
              a negative reply to the client.
MISCELLANEOUS CONTROLS
       config_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
              The default location of  the  Postfix  main.cf  and
              master.cf configuration files.
       daemon_timeout (18000s)
              How  much time a Postfix daemon process may take to
              handle a request  before  it  is  terminated  by  a
              built-in watchdog timer.
       ipc_timeout (3600s)
              The time limit for sending or receiving information
              over an internal communication channel.
       max_idle (100s)
              The maximum amount of time  that  an  idle  Postfix
              daemon  process  waits  for  an incoming connection
              before terminating voluntarily.
       max_use (100)
              The maximal number of incoming connections  that  a
              Postfix  daemon  process will service before termi-
              nating voluntarily.
       process_id (read-only)
              The process ID  of  a  Postfix  command  or  daemon

       syslog_name (see 'postconf -d' output)
              The mail system  name  that  is  prepended  to  the
              process  name  in  syslog  records, so that "smtpd"
