Is it possible to get # of sent emails using logwatch? With our current setup I can see the number of received emails using 'logwatch --service sendmail -detail=11' but not the # sent.

I can probably parse this info out of the sendmail logs but it would make life much easier if logwatch can pull it for me.

If you install MIMEDefang, you can have filter_recipient log this information for you.

Looks cool. For now Im just parsing the Sendmail logs but this might be a better approach. – ethrbunny Sep 12 '11 at 13:51
