View Mail Statistics Summary

This interface allows you to view statistics about the mail that your server sends and receives over a period of time. The date range for the statistics is displayed in the top of the interface.

Mail Statistics Summary

The interface divides the statistics into the following sections;

Grand total summary;

This section displays statistics about the total number of messages that your server sends and receives, and all of the accounts that your server hosts.

TOTAL — Whether the data corresponds to received or delivered mail.
Volume — The total size of the messages, in kilobytes (KB).
Messages — The total number of messages.
Addresses — The total number of addresses that receive or send mail. Due to an error in the "eximstats2 process, this data may be incorrect.
Hosts — The total number of unique domains that send or receive mail.
At least one addr Delayed — The number of messages with at least one recipient whose mail server delayed the message.
At least one addr Failed — The number of messages with at least one recipient whose mail server rejected the message.

Deliveries by Transport;

This section displays statistics about the mail that your mail transfer agent (MTA) delivers.

local_delivery — Messages that the system delivered from one user on your server to another user on your server.
remote_smtp — Messages that the system delivered from a user on your server to a user on another server.
virtual_userdelivery — Messages that the system forwarded from a virtual user on your server to a real user. This occurs if you set up a mail forwarder.

For each of these three types of sent mail, the section displays the following columns:

Volume — The total size of delivered messages.
Messages — The total number of delivered messages.

Messages received per hour;

This section of the statistics displays the number of messages that your server received per hour over the last day. This section should be used to determine the times when your traffic is highest.

This section of the statistics displays the number of messages that your server delivered per hour over the last day. This section should be used to determine the times when your traffic is highest.

Time spent on the queue: all messages;

This section of the statistics displays the amount of time that messages waited in your mail queues before the server delivered them.

Time — This is the amount of time that the messages waited for the system to deliver them. This is broken down into the following;

Under 1m – The system managed to deliver the messages in under a minute.
1h – The system managed to deliver the messages in over a minute, but under an hour.
1d – The system managed to deliver the messages in over an hour, but under 24 hours.
Over 1d — The system managed to deliver the messages after 24 hours or more.

Messages — This is the number of messages that the system has delivered.
Percentage — This is the percentage of messages that the system has delivered in a specific amount of time.
Cumulative Percentage — This is the percentage of messages that the system delivered in a specific amount of time.

Time spent on the queue: messages with a least one remote delivery;

This section displays statistics about the amount of time messages waited in your outgoing mail queue before the system delivered them to remote addresses.

Time — This is the amount of time that the messages waited for the system to deliver them. This is broken down into the following;

Under 1m – The system managed to deliver the messages in under a minute.
1h – The system managed to deliver the messages in over a minute, but under an hour.
1d – The system managed to deliver the messages in over an hour, but under 24 hours.

Relayed messages;

This section displays statistics about mail that the system sent from your server to remote destinations. Do not allow your server to operate as an open relay. Exim is not an open relay because it requires authentication for the system to send outbound messages. Messages that this section displays under Relayed Messages do not indicate that the server is an open relay.
