Hi, is there any way to set up an alarm that alerts when a certain level of submitted e-mails per min, hour, whatever is reached?

I would like to be able to detect anormalities in our mail system.

Mail server is Exchange 2010 and it sends e-mails directly to the reciever (i.e. no mail relaying).

Thanks for any advises.
