Alerts if Notes Domino Mail.box reaches a specific limit

We have had issues where emails have not been sending and sitting in the mail.box for a few hours. Is there anyway I can set up an alerts so if it reaches a limit i.e 100 emails it would send an alert to an administrator etc to inform them?

Use Mail Quotas in Domino Administrator > Files
You can set that for multiple databases.

UPS, wrong answer

You can set up an agent that would be triggered by new mail arrival, check number of mails and if threshold is reached send an e-mail to someone.

You can also try with mail-routing event generator, which creates stat report QOS.Mail.RecipientName.ResponseTime with value -1 if mail-trace fails.
Then you can create event-handler to send e-mail to someone.

Sending an mail is probably not a good reaction to mail.box being cluttered.
That's because it has to go through that same mail.box, which means it won't be able to go out without cleaning the held/dead mail first.

Maybe this could help:

I guess that you want to get a warning when the router doesn't send messages out, i.e. when (one of the) the mail.box database(s) is holding outgoing mail.

The good news is: it's built-in functionality. The other news is that it's not so easy to set it up. The functionality is known as Monitoring, see topics in the Admin Help database about Statistic Event Generator documents, Mail.Waiting, and the databases events4.nsf, statrep.nsf. AFAIK there is already an event defined for Mail.Waiting>5, so all you probably have to do is activate that event.

See also Domino Domain Monitoring if you need much more info.

Using the details provided by these two posts I have managed to setup statistic monitoring on a server which gathers the stats from my two mail routing servers and an event handler sends me a mail message if higher then set limit.
Now I need to set back and see what happens!
