    what is the difference between

    postconf -d | grep maximal_queue_lifetime

    and

    postconf | grep maximal_queue_lifetime

     

    it shows two different values

    root@lvps**cut**:/etc/postfix# postconf -d | grep maximal_queue_lifetime
    maximal_queue_lifetime = 5d
    root@lvps**cut**:/etc/postfix# postconf | grep maximal_queue_lifetime
    maximal_queue_lifetime = 10d

    Hello @Pera,

    "-d" is for printing main.cf default parameter settings instead of actual settings. 

    This may be checked at the official Postfix website:

    Does Plesk/Postfix Send a Email non-delivery report when the maximal_queue_lifetime has passed?

    Hello Go Advised Group

    I was unable to find such functionality in postfix itself.

    In case you'll know how to achieve this, submit a feature suggestion here.
