Knowing Qmail's status

Hi im running Red Hat 9 with Qmail

I run a email website with runs fine, I havent had this setup long but sent a newsletter out last night about 50,000 emails in plain text to keep it short.

Some members have complained about emails not being sent from the website (not 'that' unusual) but I want to check Qmails status - how many queued emails etc more info the better: Any ideas?

download webmin tools. Webmin tools will allow you quite a bit of administrative control over qmail in a graphical interface through your web browser. Once you install it just browse to http://localhost:10000
Personally, I am using 'qmailctl' script (which is part of 'Life with qmail'), qmHandle script and log files for monitoring qmail's behavior.
qmHandle ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/qmhandle) is just what you need - this script will list you mails from all queues (with/without headers etc).
Also, 'qmailctl stat' will show you number of messages in local/remote queues, but without any additional info.
