Plugin displays the current length of postfix queues.
The main feature of the script is speed. It is much faster than other similar plugins that parse mailq and postqueue. It takes only seconds to analyze more than 1'000'000 messages in queue.

Native dash support.

I like that I inspired you to do this, kudos. That said, do you have any statistics to backup your claim? Furthermore, only very Enterprisy users have *that* much messages in the queue, in which case you should consider load balancing or something similar. Also, you ripped off the name from my plugin.

This plugin have been used in mail devlivery farm. Several MXs have been used to fallback mail delivery so sometimes they accumulate lot of deferred email messages. Other plugins take several minutes to get info about queue.
