42.7 Notifying the Domain Administrator

If you want to be notified with an e-mail message whenever the MTA encounters a critical error, you can designate yourself as an administrator of the domain for which the MTA is running.

  1. In ConsoleOne, browse to and right-click the Domain object, then click Properties to display the Identification page.

  2. In the Administrator field, browse to and select your GroupWise user ID.

    A domain can have a single administrator, or you can create a group to function as administrators.

  3. Click OK to save the administrator information.

    The selected user or group then begins receiving e-mail messages whenever the MTA for the domain encounters a critical error.

Corresponding Startup Switches By default, the MTA generates error mail if an administrator has been assigned for the domain. Error mail can be turned off using the /noerrormail switch.

MTA Web Console Another way to receive e-mail notification of MTA problems is to use GroupWise Monitor to access the MTA Web console. See Section 63.5.1, Configuring E-Mail Notification.
