I was wondering if anyone would be able to share some details about what certain elements in the qmail mail log mean. I've tried Googling and had trouble finding any specifics...
When most mail accounts connect to my server it looks something like this...
Sep 26 16:43:35 myserver pop3d: IMAP connect from @ [xx.xx.xx.xx]INFO: LOGIN, firstname.lastname@example.org, ip=[xx.xx.xx.xx]
Sep 26 16:43:35 myserver pop3d: 1285544615.375673 LOGOUT, email@example.com, ip=[xx.xx.xx.xx], top=0, retr=0, time=0, rcvd=28, sent=56, maildir=/var/qmail/mailnames/domain.com/user/Maildir
My question is about exactly what the various items in the LOGOUT entry mean...
I imagine the "sent" and "rcvd" is how much data is being passed back and forth but which is which? Is "sent" how much that account is sending to the server each time they connect? Or how much the server is sending them? Or am I totally off base?
