       postlog - Postfix-compatible logging utility

       postlog [-iv] [-c config_dir]
	       [-p priority] [-t tag] [text...]

       The  postlog(1)	command implements a Postfix-compatible logging inter
       face for use in, for example, shell scripts.

       By default, postlog(1) logs the text given on the command line  as  one
       record.	If  no text is specified on the command line, postlog(1) reads
       from standard input and logs each input line as one record.

       Logging is sent to syslogd(8); when the standard error stream  is  con
       nected to a terminal, logging is sent there as well.

       The following options are implemented:

       -c config_dir
	      Read  the  main.cf  configuration  file  in  the named directory
	      instead of the default configuration directory.

       -i     Include the process ID in the logging tag.

       -p priority
	      Specifies the logging severity:  info  (default),  warn,	error,
	      fatal, or panic.

       -t tag Specifies  the  logging  tag, that is, the identifying name that
	      appears at the beginning of each logging record. A  default  tag
	      is used when none is specified.

       -v     Enable  verbose  logging	for  debugging	purposes.  Multiple -v
	      options make the software increasingly verbose.

	      Directory with the main.cf file.

       The following main.cf parameters are especially relevant to  this  pro

       The  text  below provides only a parameter summary. See postconf(5) for
       more details including examples.

       config_directory (see postconf -d output)
	      The default location of the Postfix main.cf and  master.cf  con
	      figuration files.

       syslog_facility (mail)
	      The syslog facility of Postfix logging.

       syslog_name (postfix)
	      The  mail  system  name that is prepended to the process name in
	      syslog records, so that "smtpd"  becomes,  for  example,	"post
