    How would one go about reading the number of times an email address has received an email from a domain. Would i have to grep/zgrep through the mail logs ? Is there a better way? Can I manually setup an forward to an autoresponder programatically - e.g. via remoting ? Delete messages programatically? check messages programatically?

    How did you setup your mailserver? Filebased configuration or mysql based? Do you use ISPConfig? Which lda do you use, procmail or maildrop or another lda?

    I'm using the setup described here.. Sorry that I'm sketchy on the details.

    I was wanting a way to control the email coming through the domain , what I'm thinking now is instead of limiting by the number of emails received - limit by time. And I create a temporary email address that is put up and taken down as defined by a cron script. But if you know of a way to query the mail logs with sql - before mail is delivered to its recipient .. then that would be the best.

    Thank you for your patience.
