Notification when Queue or Sent Mail exceed threshold

Postby tamouh » Mon May 20, 2013 5:45 pm

We would love to see a feature that will help us tackle spam in a big way.

Often, when an account is compromised on the server, the hacker sends out thousands of emails.

We would like to see a feature to get notification when the sent out SMTP emails for the whole server exceeds a certain threshold. Another one is when the mail queue reaches a certain number.

It would also be nice to limit each domain allowed emails per hour or per day to certain number.

MailEnable also has the ability set thresholds for the maximum number of recipients per hour (this is under the Security tab of the SMTP Connector).
You can also control this at a postoffice or user level (under the settings for the postoffice and mail user respectively)
With this settings, users will not be able to send large volumes of messages (per hour) if an account is compromised.

Also, the alerter that appears in the tray allows you to send alerts when the message queue grows abnomaly and can send an alert when this happens.
