Using round trip email monitoring you can test and verify your whole mail system, including virus scanners and spam scanners are working.
Each of our monitors sends your system a uniquely identified email on each visit. You configure your systems so that the emails pass through your systems and back to our monitoring servers to complete the round trip or we can pick them up using pop3 or imap.
From the results obtained ipPatrol determines whether your email systems are working and can send you an alert via sms, pager and email as required.
Performance statistics (dns lookup time, connect time, first byte time, transfer time, elapsed time and round trip time) are recorded and used in our online graphs and email reports to provide a performance overview of your mail server.
Detailed reports are sent on a regular basis as required containing details of outages, server availability, a graph depicting overall performance and a detailed performance analysis.
We can be monitoring your services in a matter of minutes. Simply join our free trial, log into your instantly available control panel and setup your monitoring. Shortly afterwards you'll receive an automatic notification that monitoring has started. Still not sure? Contact support for more details.
