Courier nightmares

Courier sucks. Today I had lots of problems with a mail server accepting mail but not doing local delivery. The puppy was a Courier machine, and I spent a good hour fiddling around the documentation only to see that there was no real way to check the queue status. OK, now a full horde of courier fans will hit me with “hey, it was as easy as doing xxx and/or yyy”. But folks, queue management should be prominently noted in the documentation, and this is definitely not the case.
Well… I don’t like the design, I don’t like the implementation, I don’t like the documentation. What else can I say… long live Postfix!
