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.
serversitters.com/exim-mail-queue-commands.html

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.
