WHM: Email Icon

On the email page, there are several that give you information on email activity.

  • View Sent Summary:  This tool shows the total number of message delivery attempts for each domain. This information is divided into successful and failed attempts, and shows the total number of bytes sent by each domain.
  • Mail Queue Manager: This tool allows you to view and manage email messages queued for delivery.
  • Mail Delivery Reports: This tool allows you to find and review messages sent from and received by your server. You can see whether each message was delivered successfully. You can also view details about each delivery attempt.
With the information that you can access, you should be able to find out what happened to any message that went through your server.​​​​​​​
