Check the mailq of nullmailer in Icinga/Nagios

I found the original (non-functional) version of this patch on sourceforge.net. After messing about with it for a bit it works fine now and if you need it here it is.

Afterwards an entry in your nrpe_local.cfg as such:

command[check_mailq]=/path/to/nagios/plugins/check_mailq $ARG1$ -M nullmailer

Restart NRPE and configure your check on the Icinga/Nagios server.

Enjoy
