Postfix logs - all possible status=


We 'finally' got the go ahead to move from sendmail to postfix, and now my log parser needs updated. To try and no skip a beat with the results I am trying to gather a list of all possible 'status=' messages. I've done some tests of my own and the only ones I can create are:

status=sent
status=deferred
status=bounced

What other possible status could I get from Postfix that would be different from sendmail?

This is what I have for sendmail:

stat=Sent
stat=Deferred
stat=Service unavailable
stat=User unknown
stat=Host unknown
stat=Data format error
stat=queued

Thanks in advanced!

Your main ones you already listed--
status=sent
status=deferred
status=bounced

There is also--
status=expired

Postfix combines several items into bounced that sendmail separates (mailbox issues, host issues, user issues.) it details them further at the end of the line for the bounce inside parens ( ).
