Server email notifications
What kind of server email notifications can I subscribe to and what actions do I need to take?
Log in to the environment of the disk notification.
Navigate to your domain log folder
In this folder you can find the mail.log, because of the logrotate there will be 8 mail.log files.
There are multiple actions we can perform to check why mails are bounced.
The easiest way is to
cat the mail.log and grep on the bounced mails.
This will print all of the bounced mails and give information why there are bounced.
cat mail.log | grep 'bounced'
Most of the bounced output logs will be email account does not exist or Quota exceeded.
To solve this problem check if your website uses captcha on the create account and subscribe to newsletter.
