Manager Email Reports

The system will send emails to the manager email account to report serious issues. There are some settings that will add more such reports or specify the limits when the reports are sent.

You can test reports are working with the command:

tellmail manager_report

Optional settings to add more reports:

  • g_user_report "weekly" # Send a weekly report with user quota
  • g_queue_warning "2000" # Warn if the sending queue exceeds this figure
  • g_quota_report "true" # Generate a quota report
  • g_user_send_warning "500" # Warn if a single user sends more than this many message per day
  • g_disk_warning "90%" # Send a warning if the disk usage exceeds 90%
