Email Alerts

I am not recieving email alerts from the firewall, Sidewinder 8.3.1, and don't really know how to troubleshoot it. When I do "ls /var/spool/mqueue.c" I see there are a ton of messages. I have my "Mail(Sendmail)" properties setup as transparent. How can I get the queued email to send?

    Re: Email Alerts

    Hello,

     

    These two commands should help you figure out why the mail is queued up in the first place:

     

    mailq

     

    tail -f /var/log/maillog

     

    It could be deferred because of DNS problems or something else.

     

    Regards,

     

    Matt
