    If the setting "Before Queue Filtering" is enabled, for at least some of the emails that are being blocked, the email data itself has been received. Is there a way to log the data from a blocked message that failed filtering? Or if it is already being logged, where would I look to find that...

    [SOLVED] Can you perform an action without a log entry appearing in the cluster log?

    So I recently made a cron job that, every 6 hours, would take a snapshot of every VM (just to have faster and up-to-date backups to protect against user error). Everything is flawless and I have yet to encounter any issues. BUT there is one hiccup that is getting rather annoying: the cluster...

    Hey there fellow Proxmoxers, I've coded a little program that you might find useful. It was inspired by the trouble I was having getting any of the mail programs to work for logging ZFS errors as reported by ZED, which comes by default with Proxmox.
