Postfix Log Entry Summarizer

Everyday I manage a Postfix mail server that handles emails from 20 mailing-lists. On days like this when there lot of email traffic, I keep an eye on the activity using pflogsumm perl script.

pflogsumm -e --problems_first -d today /var/log/maillog | pager is designed to provide an overview of postfix activity, with just enough detail to give the administrator a "heads up" for potential trouble spots.
