Re: Live Server Stats

Hi, Thanks :) The only bits where its not filtered by user when it's applied are the MX Check (obviously as thats a domain thing), the server cpu / ram / storage stuff and the Top Users bit. I'll delete the top users bit as that could get a bit misleading (the mailbox count and size) and replace it ...

Re: Live Server Stats

Hi,

None taken - it's the sensible thing to do!

I've done a domain filter ... now ...

"select the accounts after that"

do you mean you'd want to be able to select an individual user specifically?

I think you'll probably want to use your ISP as a mail relay as I'm assuming (since your on XP Pro) that you don't have a fixed public IP?
