Okay I am just wondering

Using Spamhaus I am receiving this informationvia exim stats


Grand total summary

So 1050 mails received
678 Mails rejected
and 1326 delivered

now does delivered mean what our users sent out or does that mean emails we have received that are going to multiple recipients?

Thanks!

Matt

The received is likely cummulative from users and from being sent through your server if that is an option.
rejected could be the server rejected messages or messages it tried to deliver were rejected
delivered means that the message was delievered locally or the message was delievered to the destination mail server.

Spamhaus is being used to minimize spam sent to your users that the stats will be based on incoming requests to the server.

Look at the raw logs to see what is there and the tool you use to generate the stats to see what it is evaluating.
