    Trace Emails

    Hello
    I'm new to DA, I recently moved from CPanel to DA. I need to know whether there is any chance to trace emails and delivery status of the emails like CPanel in DA or not.
    Thanks.

    Since I don't know how cPanel does it, I can't be sure, but I'm inclined to doubt it.

    Can you post a screen shot and explanation of the exact details so we can consider it if it doesnt exist?

    Happened to have this topic still open (yes I sometimes have _alot_ of tabs open ), but I would like to say that a e-mail stats page like that would be very insightful, easier to track spam as well. I don't know if this would be possible with existing logs or exim log features, but maybe we could make a feature request of it.

    Isn't eximstats who generates such a report?! At least eximstats can do this:

    Code:
    Exim statistics from 2014-09-20 04:19:25 to 2014-09-20 18:09:50

    What's missing there is the amounts of deliveries, rejects and such per user and domain, I think the combination of those is what makes it useful.

    Try on your own to see what else it displays, my list is very very short example of it can do.

    Code:
    eximstats /var/log/exim/mainlog | less

    Since no one has decided to build a plugin, should we make this a feature request ?

    I've made it a feature request. Let's see if it gets more interest.

    personally, I think it should be a plugin
    Alex IS the 'go to guy' for plugins and does a fantastic job !!!!
    why a plugin? because I think core should be all core and all the extras come from plugins and themes
    why complicate core and make it more heavy when its main job is to provide a top notch webhost control panel.

    The actual "core" provide also statistics using awstats, and webalizer.. and other usage statistic produced by da itself... so what problem should cause? That page get load "on the fly" if an admin request it, so... normally should not afflict the server/da speed at all!

    agreed but since DA has most of what we like, why not a plugin that can be enhanced to use in a more graphical way, then the plugin can have more added to get the features/looks we want, not relying on a core change to get it done

    The thing is: with a plugin someone has to be willing to make it, and to maintain it. Often plugins are created but sooner or later, they won't work anymore.

    As this is a relative simple feature which like SeLLeRoNe says would just execute a eximstats command on the fly, and would not 'change the core' or anything.

    Other then that: these stats are something that many admins probably find useful, you get more grip into your mailflow: who is sending how many mail and what happens with it.

    Arieh,

    Good point. We are humans. And we all live and walk under the Sun. But what if John one day decides to quit Directadmin?

    Hope that someone else or another company takes over

    But DA itself is the main pipeline, without that plugins are useless as well. Also plugins are mostly free, created in spare time where DA is commercial of course.

    So in general with new features, I like to think that first we pursue the possibility of making it a DA feature, if not willing we then can see if someone wants to make a plugin for it.

    Just my thoughts on it.

    I agree. DA puts almost everything in core, it would be good to have an extra button on the server summary page.
    On top of that, they already collect most of the information at the user level, so methods are already written.

    A plugin could take a different, deeper approach, using existats, but that tool can already generate html, among other formats, so anybody can have daily server stats using cron.
