queue_repair is a toolkit for dealing with the qmail queue directory structure; it can create a new queue, move and properly rename a queue, dynamically change the conf-split value, convert big-todo queues to non-big-todo and vice versa, and repair a corrupted queue.
Python version 1.5.2 or above. I strongly recommend the use of either version 1.5.2 or 2.x. Avoid version 1.6, as it was never intended for widespread use and was not tested particularly well.
qmail. If you're not running qmail, you don't need queue-repair.
Unpack the tarball:
tar xzf queue-repair-version.tar.gz
Copy the contents to a suitable location:
cp -a queue-repair-version/* /usr/local/lib/queue-repair/
You can install getmail in your home directory or elsewhere if you prefer.
Change into the directory you installed queue-repair in, or ensure that directory is in your path.
Stop qmail-send. Running queue-repair on a live queue could give erroneous information in test-only mode, and will seriously confuse qmail in repair mode.
Run queue_repair.py with the options you choose, documented below.
Basic usage information:
queue_repair.py [options] [conf-qmail]
conf-qmail defaults to /var/qmail/.
What's New in This Release:
many cleanups to the code
mode of todo files was wrong in some cases when ext-todo was in use or big-todo not in use; thanks to Thomas Palmieri and David Gartner for their reports that helped me track this down.
