Top 10 queues by number of recipients

The "Queues" page provides a listing of the top ten queues ranked by number of recipients.

  • Name - Name of the domain and Virtual MTA if applicable, in the format domain/vmta. A warning icon is displayed when there are low delivery rates. Low delivery rates are calculated from the data in recipient events, when the delivery count is less than 90% of the total of these last events. See Queue Details for recipient event summary count and the detail of each event. No warning icon is shown if there are 10 or less recipient events for that queue.

  • #Rcpt - Number of recipients currently in the given queue.

  • KBytes - Current size of queue.

  • #Conn - Number of outbound connections the queue is currently using.

  • Paused - Whether the queue has been paused or not.

  • Mode - The mode of the queue, either normal or backoff.

  • Last Error - Shows the last PowerMTA notifications (for example, in the case of a configured rate or connection limit being hit) or gateway level error PowerMTA received from a remote site on a connection attempt for the queue.
