I need to monitor an email sent to my inbox
I recieve emails from this hardware when there is a problem. It is not a system/server, just a hardware. I get notifications via email and I need to monitor them in openview so I can put instructions. Is there a way to monitor this in OMW 8.16?
If I read your post correctly - you are looking for an option where an individual email to your mailbox can be captured and trigger as an alert in OMW Console. If this is correct I don't think you can do this.
If the hardware is sending you alerts then check if it can send SNMP trap messages. If that is possible then you can create a SNMP poilcy that will look for this message from the hardware and you can get alerts in the Console.
Hope this helps or you get a better answer.
As Ram said, monitoring the email is not possible i think.
I think when the hardware can send emails, sure, it should support SNMP aswell, most probably. in that case, you can configure SNMP Policy and monitor the SNMP Traps from that hardware...
You can try this:
1. Write a script to receive mail and save it to a text file
2. write OM policy for log files.
But this is not the best way.
Best use snmp or another metod.
