Log Search (new parameters)

Post by isaak » Fri Jan 07, 2011 6:05 am


Right now MagicSpam can do a log search based on address parameters.
But it would be useful for administrators to fight spam, to follow up a special case with a domain (not going through for any reason), etc; if there would be other search parameters.

What about:
. Log Search based on IP address parameter?
. On HELO and/or Hostname string basis?
. And specially the type of Spam rejected (e.x.: show me all emails that have been rejected by check_dynamic_reverse_dns)

This way, like I mentioned before, it would be easy to fight spam because as Administrators we can analyse a specific case or simply find out whats going on with an specific BEST PRACTICE RULE, etc. It would definitely be such a great help!

Thank you in advance for a response.

But they way... GREAT PRODUCT (talking about MagicSpam of course)!!!! ;-)

Any answer on this matter?
We urged at least a Log Search IP based.

Is there any workaround, like changing the LogSearch Form Input to something like this?
<input type="text" name="ip_addr" />

So far the form code has this two inputs:
<input type="text" name="from_addr" />
<input type="text" name="rcpt_addr" />

Is it possible to use the name "ip_addr" or any other related so we can do the search manually?

Thank you in advance.

Greeting Isaak and thank you for your continued interest in improving MagicSpam.

Our developers have been hard at work on a number of features: including the log search parameters you have outlined. Currently there is a large focus on integrating the capability to manage settings not just at a server wide level, but also at a domain administration level - not a light task considering the number of integrations types that MagicSpam supports.

We are estimating a release to be coming up some time next month with said features in place.

In the meantime, you do always have the option of searching the logs directly with the 'grep' utility.

If for example you were searching for ip address, you could use the command:

grep "ip=[" /var/log/magicspam/mslog

This is of course a linux based command. In windows, your options could include opening c:/magicspam/log/mslog in wordpad and running a search.

Yes.. these are just work arounds for the interim but we are quite confident that you will be happy with the new set of features in the upcoming release.
