  • Exchange 2010 email monitoring tool

    hello,

    does anyone know what tool can i use to monitor end-to-end email round trip?
    my company wants to have a proactive approach so that we system admin can be notified when there is delay in receiving email from external.

    for example if i send email from gmail to internal account, will there be delays or problem or whatnot...

    many tools out there are part of a bigger netowrk monitoring tool eg. nagios xi has excahnge plugin which monitor mesage queue etc..

    anyone has similar requirements out there?

    cheers

    You cannot monitor outside your organisation, so end-to-end is really "arrival. at ET (OR HT) through to internal delivery (and vice versa). IMHO the message tracking and logging in Exchange does a good enough job without needing any 3rd party tools

      Not sure what the exact requirements and your setup is but you won't be able to pro-actively monitor e-mails once they leave your Exchange or before they hit your exchange server.
      For issue related to your exchange org you could use the mailflow tools in EMC
      or you could have an Edge transport server or equivalent third party exchange gateway such as Sophos E-mail appliance to further channel and control E-mail traffic

        There are a number of ways of doing this.
        There are services that will do the job. They will send you an email which you put a rule on the mailbox to send back to them.

        It also can be done with Paessler PRTG.

        Set it up really careful though, if you don't, it will cause an email loop.
