Viewing mail statistics

The FortiView > Mail Statistics > By Count tab contains summaries of the number of email messages in each time period that the FortiMail unit detected viruses, spam, or neither.

The FortiView > Mail Statistics > By Size tab contains summaries by the file sizes of email messages in each time period that the FortiMail unit detected viruses, spam, or neither.

For email messages classified as spam, mail statistics include which FortiMail feature classified the email as spam, such as Bayesian antispam databases, access control rules, the system-wide block list, or email user-configured block lists.

For email not classified as spam by any antispam scan, mail statistics label it as Not Spam.

In addition to viewing overall trends via the graph, you can also view details at each point in time. To view these details, hover your mouse over a bar in the graph. A tool tip appears next to that point on the graph, including the name of the antispam category, message count, and percentage relative to the overall mail volume at that time.

To use the Mail Statistics tab, first configure your FortiMail unit to detect spam and/or viruses. For more information, see Configuring profiles and Configuring policies.
