How to bounce a postfix message with Core-Admin

In the case you have a message in Postfix queue that you want to bounce without having to wait for queue max life time reached, you can use the following command provided by core-admin-tools package:

Prerequisites

Install/update package core-admin-tools if you don’t have command crad-bounce.pyc. For that, use:

>> crad-update.pyc -u
>> crad-update.pyc -g

Command line to bounce a message from Postfix Queue with Core-Admin

>> crad-bounce.pyc -b <postfixqueueid>

In such case, find message id to bounce using mailq as usual. For example:

>> mailq
-Queue ID- --Size-- ----Arrival Time---- -Sender/Recipient-------
