It's a really great package, works right out of the box :) :)

By looking at the comments in the config file it looks like the maillog is
being scanned for e-mails from that day. Would it be possible to add an
hourly stat, a bit traffic like from which you can see how much mail gets
delivered at which time (a graph that doesn't display a sum of all e-mails
only the actual number of mails processed per time frame).

Would also make it easier to spot any peak hours and see whether the
server is up to it's task :)
