Alert When Incoming messages Drops to Zero

Unanswered Question
Feb 11th, 2010

I recently discovered that we were not receiving any inbound email.  This was a networking issue.  However, can I get my C160 to send me an alert when my incoming message count drops to zero, or to a low number over a time period?  We get 300k to 750k message a day, so if the incoming messages per hour drops to less than 500 I want to know.  Thanks.

I have this problem too.

There was some discussion over the past to do script monitor on the C systems via https://

In the user manual, there is

Mail Status

http://hostname/xml/status

Host Mail Status for a Specified Host

http://hostname/xml/hoststatus?hostname=host

DNS Status

http://hostname/xml/dnsstatus

Top Incoming Domains

http://hostname/xml/topin

Top Outgoing Domainsa

http://hostname/xml/tophosts

You may need to switch to https, if you admin interface uses SSL port listening.

With commandline, you can do this

curl -k -u admin:yourpassword https://hostname/xml/status






Further scripting on checking the in_recips or delivered_recips over an extended period may show there is potential problem.
