    I am trying to install this on my server and following installation guidelines that apply to qmail. I need to do the equivalent of the below for EXIM -

    ln -s /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts isoqlog.domains

    Is there an equivalent of rcpthosts for exim?

    The very helpful installation guide I am following is here -

    Qmailrocks.org Extras - Isoqlog

    Thanks.

    Mike

    The symlink's purpose is to link stats reporting for every domain on the machine, correct? If that is the case, then that information would be /etc/localdomains file for the reporting stats, since /etc/localdomains is the file for exim that shows every domain that can route email locally to and from the machine:

    Code:
    ln -s /etc/localdomains isoqlog.domains

    Oh - now I feel stupid for asking because I totally knew that, but didn't recall that localdomains was a file and not a directory :) Thanks Tristan.

    Can you tell me why WHM's functionality does not include listing the top sending email addresses as isoqlog does? This seems to be very basic functionality and probably the admin's most needed bit of information to help track down a spammer.

    Thanks.

    You are very welcome, Mike.

    As for this question:

    In cPanel 11.31/11.32, we have an area called WHM > Email > View Sent Summary that lists the domain and user for the following information:

    Successful
    Failed & Deferred
    Total Failed
    Deferred
    Bytes Sent

    I've attached a screen print showing what this area provides. This sounds about like what you are looking for information-wise. Once 11.31/11.32 is pushed to the production tiers (CURRENT, RELEASE, STABLE), then this option will be available as part of WHM.

    Oh wow - that looks awesome! Looks like I won't be needing to install ISOQLOG on all of my servers after all :)

    Does the new functionality by chance allow for viewing a sample of outgoing email where spamming might suspected? That would be useful too.

    Thanks.

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    The mails aren't shown for the body contents, but there is additional information available by clicking on the number. I've attached a screen print showing what data is retained for the messages.

    Thanks!
