    Poscat shows messages that are still in the mail queue. If message has already been sent, it can not be shown since it is no longer available on the sending e-mail server. You should configure server to store a copy of sent e-mail if you need to access them.

    If it is just one account, enter something in the BCC field setting.
    If all e-mails must be copied, using Internet Search Engines finds proming results:
    postfix store copy of sent e-mail
