Disable monitoring only for insecure email protocols
More and more providers disable unsecured protocols for email communication and offer only IMAPS, POP3S or SMTPS.
By disabling the ports (e.g. IMAP) ISPConfig monitoring reports those services as being offline.
The only way to solve this is to completely disable the monitoring function for email.
- There should be an option to separate those ports and disable monitoring for insecure (or selected) protocols.
- This might be extended to other services as well, which are monitored (HTTPS, MySQL).
To me it seems like the monitoring function in
ispconfig3/server/lib/classes/monitor_tools.inc.php checks only the standard ports. There is no monitoring for smtps/465, imaps/993 or 995/pop3s.
Firstly those other protocols probably need to be added here. Next would be to separate email monitoring into secure and insecure.
Any other thoughts about this?
