Alerts & Monitoring

Use the Configuration > System > Alerts & Monitoring page to do the following:

  • Configure who in your organization should receive Email Appliance-generated email alerts regarding the health of the Email Appliance.
  • Temporarily turn off alerts sent to Sophos during periods when you are evaluating or testing the Email Appliance.
  • Set the contact information for the person in your organization that Sophos should contact if they detect problems with your Email Appliance.
  • Specify a postmaster address.
  • Enable and configure simple network monitoring protocol (SNMP).

The Email Appliance is self-monitoring, and it can notify administrators via email whenever there is reason for concern. The full list of possible alerts can be viewed on the System Status tab.
