 # ls -al /usr/share/man/man1/mailq.1.gz
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 31 lug 16:30 /usr/share/man/man1/mailq.1.gz -> /etc/alternatives/mta-mailqman
 # ls -al /etc/alternatives/mta-mailqman
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 38 31 lug 16:49 /etc/alternatives/mta-mailqman -> /usr/share/man/man1/mailq.postfix.1.gz

What does "zcat /usr/share/man/man1/mailq.postfix.1.gz" show?
If ".so man1/sendmail.1", this file doesn't exist.
