  • Reads internal system variables
  • For scripting and integration
  • Bulk modifications of settings
  • Connects to remote servers
  • Can be run from remotely connected GUI

Logging is crucial to track down server activity, causes of delivery failures, spam and hack attacks. There are separate logs for all services, server error log. Records within defined date and time period can be viewed and date stripped for clean output or statistics aggregation. IM Archive can be viewed at the same place.

While logs are used for debugging and processing by applications, for day-to-day maintenace an overview of server/user activity is more appropriate. For large installations, statistics can be grouped by domain instead of user account, mailing list or other non-user account. Whenever suspicious values are found, administrator can inspect the particular mailbox.

  • System Inspectors: Service Uptime, Connections, Network Transfer Rates, Memory and Volume Utilisation
  • Traffic Statistics analyzer with charting (Global/Service/Account level), day, week, month views
  • Account and Domain Statistics: monitor email usage, number of users, messages, export possibilities
  • Account Statistics: last login, recieved/sent/sent out messages/data, volume occupied

Traffic Statistics - SMTP - Connections - 1 week Various statistic can be displayed for each service, in a given timeframe.
