Unanswered Question

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.

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


Host Mail Status for a Specified Host


DNS Status


Top Incoming Domains


Top Outgoing Domainsa


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.
