Number of Undelievered mails per domain

Hi Experts,

Is there any way to identify number of undelivered emails per domain or per account? Basically, I would like to have a script with which i can identify number of undelivered emails for specified account. I wanted to have count of emails sitting on server and not delivered to its client. Is this possible with hMaiLServer scripting?

Regards,

Y

By undelivered, you mean not downloaded by clients? or do you mean waiting in the delivery queue to be sent to other mail servers?

I suspect that you mean the first - not downloaded by clients?
Really hard to tell.

IMAP clients may actually 'read' a message and leave the flag set as 'unread'.
POP3 clients can elect to leave a copy on server.

What exactly is it that you wish to see... :D

So no, not possible to do accurately...

I attempted something similar using message flags in the database ... you'll need to do your own testing to see if it's accurate enough for you, but should give a general overview - i.e. the more mails you have then in percentage terms the more accurate I'd expect it to be.
