    One of the signals that you have a compromised account is that your exim queue size has increased so I was wondering if other fellow server admins monitor that, and if they do how?

    I found this article so I was thinking of making some kind of script for running them.

    Any better idea?

    Hello :)

    I believe CSF includes a feature that notifies you when a user sends a set number of emails, but as far as a notification for the queue, there are no existing solutions that I'm aware of. You can vote and add your feedback to the following feature request:

    Thank you.

    You are correct, when I hired configserver guys to do their firewall configuration service on one of my servers,
    they configured an email alert to be sent when the email queue size reached a big size.

    However I don´t know how they do that
