I have postfix configured to send all email using Amazon's SES perl script.

  • How can I modify the configuration to hold all email?
  • Is it possible to re-queue bounced emails?

  • Somewhere in recipient_restrictions insert
    recipient_restrictions = ... static:HOLD ...
  • As the name says "bounced" mails are bounced mails. It is the past. They are already gone (back to sender) so there is nothing to re-queue. If you instead mean how to re-queue a mail on hold then this is done by postsuper -r <mailid>
