Disable email for certain alerts

Post by ffeingol »

Hello,

We'd like to disable the email alerts for certain types of alerts. For example, we don't need an email when there is a POP/IMAP/SMTP login failure, as it's easy to search the logs for there.

Thanks!

Access the account with webmail, in webmail on the front page enter into "Email Filters" and create there a rule to delete the emails that you don't want to receive.

Example:

SUBJECT CONTAINS
blocked

AND

BODY MATCHES REGEX
auth failed|Failed password for root|Incorrect authentication data

ACTIONS
Discard Message

You should know REGEX Notation to create your rules if you select "Matches REGEX.

So, the above rule means:
If Subject contains the word "blocked" and the body of the emails contains any of the following matches, delete the email.

Hello,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'd rather not send them in the first place so our mail server does not have to process them.

Ok, open your CSF Configuration and search for:

SECURITY WARNING

LF_EMAIL_ALERT
