Mail Server Monitoring Opspack

Email continues to be a primary messaging method and our email integration requires minimal configuration. The ‘Active' checkbox tells Opsview Monitor whether to list email as a valid notification method when you are creating notification profiles for yourself or other users, and includes other capabilities such as run on, command, and user variables.

What You Can Monitor

Email notifications can be set up within a few quick steps. Opsview supports many types of email server monitoring including Postfix monitoring, Sendmail monitoring, Zimbra monitoring and more. Email templates are also available to customize your email notification method. This allows your IT team to be aware of issues that are most important to them or their particular responsibility.
