Throttling Events

System administrators can receive notifications based on the following throttling events:

  • Domain Throttled - Notifies system administrators when a domain reaches the throttling threshold.
  • User Throttled - Notifies system administrators when a license is about to expire.

Conditions

Depending on the event selected, the following event criteria are available:

  • Event Name - The name of the event.
  • Event Category - The feature to which the event pertains (collaboration, email, security, etc.)
  • Event Type - Each category has several specific event types that can trigger the action.
  • Time of Day - The time frame during which the event occurs.
  • Day of Week - The day(s) of the week during which the event occurs.
  • Domain - The domain on which the event occurs.
  • Rejected - With throttling you can choose to delay or reject messages in the spool after the throttling threshold is hit. So if a domain is set to allow 500 messages per hour before throttling and the action is set to reject, those emails will get deleted instead of just being delayed for later delivery. If you have it set to delay, those messages stay in the spool and 500 more will send out in the next hour.
  • From Address - The email address from which the message is sent.
  • Enabled - The Enabled checkbox must be marked in order for this event to trigger. Use this setting to temporarily disable events.

Actions

Depending on the event selected, the following actions are available:

  • Execute command-line
  • Send email
  • Use notification profile
  • Toast notification
