1. Reports

1.1. Mail group for reports

Create the reports mail group in CGP and include postmaster in it. Set group parameters similar to postlords<. Make sure this group accepts only internal mailings<, and its mailings are not duplicated for postlords<. Make report mails stored in a shared mail folder. Go to Users/ourdom.com/postmaster/Mail/Incoming mail rules, add the new reports rule and edit it:

NOTE: I cannot implement this rule at domain level either:group mirroring takes place BEFORE rules are triggered,so this rule is invoked for every group member and thrashes the folder.

1.2. Application adjustments for reports

  • /etc/cron.hourly/hylafax : remove or comment out invocation in it
  • /etc/cron.daly/hylafax :
/usr/sbin/faxcron | mail -s "fax usage report for server.ourdom.com" reports<
  • /etc/cron.weekly/hylafax
faxcron ... | mail -n -s "fax cron job (fax2.ourdom.com)" [email protected]
faxqclean ... | mail -n -s "fax queue clean job (fax2.ourdom.com)" reports<
  • /etc/cron.monthly/hylafax
xferfaxstats ... | mail -s "monthly fax stats (fax2.ourdom.com) by destination" reports
xferfaxstats ... | mail -s "monthly fax stats (fax2.ourdom.com) by sender" reports<
  • cron reports in /etc/crontab
