    Default Does postfix require a restart after changing maximal_queue_lifetime ?

    According to this article

    Tuning Postfix Queue Settings - Zimbra :: Wiki

    It says after changing maximal_queue_lifetime via postconf e maximal_queue_lifetime=15m the changes takes place immediately.

    My question is - postfix will have to be restarted for the changes to take effect right ?

    It should only require
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    postfix reload

    Since most Postfix daemons are short-lived, your new settings are actually recognized automatically as those daemons expire and new ones are launched. However, longer running daemons such as pickup, qmgr, and possibly trivial-rewrite will not detect changes to main.cf, so changes to parameters used by these daemons require that you reload Postfix. Changes to master.cf always require a reload. Note that with changes to the inet_interfaces parameter, a reload is not sufficient. You must stop and then start Postfix in this case. - Special thanks to Vi[ck]tor Duchovni for information in this answer.
