    Hi, I am looking for a simple way to get notified each time the email queue gets full with 500 emails or more..

    How can I achieve this?

    I have installed Config server mail queue manager but it doesnt have this option.

    Hi hermano,
    Didn't tried, but you can do some like this script:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    queue=`/usr/sbin/exim -bpc`
    
    if [ $queue -gt "500" ]; then
          mail -s "Queue alert!" some@email.com
    fi

    Hello,
    Its a shell script. So you can save as .sh, and add on your crontab, setting the time you will prefer to check the queue.

    If you also have Config Server Firewall running, you can just set the LF_QUEUE_ALERT option.
