1. Start the capture on the correct interface before (re-)sending the
# iface=eth0 # or whatever
# pcap=$(mktemp -t smtp.pcap)
# tcpdump -s0 -i $iface -w $pcap tcp port 25 & pid=$!
2. Send problem message or flush the queue if still queued.
# postqueue -i <queue-id>
... send a new message that reproduces the problem...
3. Check logs to make sure another delivery attempt took place.
4. Stop the capture:
# kill -INT $pid
5. Filter the capture for just the session in question:
# tcpdump -r $pcap 'tcp & 0x12 == 2'
identify the desired destination host and local source
# tcpdump -r $pcap -w /tmp/smtp.$$.pcap tcp port $local_port and host
6. Post the filtered PCAP file after checking that it comtains an entire SMTP
from SYN -> SYN/ACK -> ACK TCP handshake to FIN/ACK -> FIN/ACK -> ACK
