The feature we are the most excited about is our MailFlow Monitoring service. Our Engineers specifically built this one of a kind tool to go beyond just monitoring SMTP, it provides real-time daily, weekly and/or monthly statistics by monitoring the status of all mail in and out of your server. Our system sends a message to your server every 5 minutes, to which your system auto-replies or sends a forward back to us. This allows you to get a true picture of the Up/Down status and performance of your mail-server!
We built this service so we could monitor the status of our own many mail servers and we didn’t feel that any current solutions on the market could tackle this request in an efficient and awesome way.
If you have your own email server in-house, chances are you may also be running other servers or have other IP Addresses that you may want to keep an eye on; such as your website! If so, you need to know the status of both at all times so you can react quickly in the event of problems. We can monitor the status of your website and all other servers (anything operating on the TCP Port Level.)
We know that oftentimes you aren’t sitting in front of your computer when something breaks. That’s why we created a mobile web app that gives you a “Status Board” which quickly identifies if services are up or down with color coding for ease. In the screenshot below the red bar indicates that 127.0.0.2 is currently blacklisted and the clear indication next to http:mxtoolbox.com indicates that the website is up!
Tags & Simple Dashboard
When a service is down or having issues you need to be able to quickly identify the service. Our simple dashboard allows you to quickly see where the problem is by color coding alerts. Red means it is down and green is up…its that simple. To make it even easier you can “tag” your alerts for easy recognition, think of it as a labeling system for your servers, customers etc.
Alert Summaries & Verification
When you monitor many things, your phone beeps MANY times. Who needs the added pressure of their phone vibrating off the table? We eliminate those nerves by checking all related items and then send out a single, concise summary of the entire event.
When you have already diagnosed the service that is having an issue the last thing you need is continued reminders of the problem. Simply hit the snooze button and our service will quit bugging you temporarily. You can even enable the snooze from your phone!
In short, we challenge you to find another provider that is offering all of these features in one easy convenient and awesome tool. Here at MxToolBox we are always working to make things easier for you and we feel that our Monitoring tools do just that. Call us directly with any questions to learn more or to get started on a Trial of MxWatch or one of our other Email & Web Security Services!
