Steve,

Perhaps this works for you. Not for me. I do get very nice traffic logs
mailed to me though :-)

Make sure you have checked Log Packets to Self that are dropped. You will
start to see the alert email.

Philip,

I can't find your original message, but I think you were after an answer as
to why you don't get alert messages, such as those in the event logs mailed
to you, while getting traffic logs mailed.

I don't either, though my NSs are configured for it, and I get lots of
traffic mail.

You might want to ask the folks at www.netscreenforum.com. It's a forum
rather than a mailing list and inhabited by some very knowledgable folks.

I have the same question on my list of things to figure out when I get time.
I was planning on posing the question there.

Regards

Yes logging is enabled - ie various policies have "permit log count"
or "deny log count" at the end. (I configure primarily via CLI)

In the case of the 5XP, it has been sitting there for months without
sending logs.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Phil
