I have MRTG monitoring several t1's.  Green is downstream and a blue line is
upstream.  That works and looks well.  What I would like to do on
Mailscanner is have a green line for total emails, blue for spams and a red
line for virii.  5 minute, 1 hour averages don't care.  I would just like
something that looks like MRTG does monitoring my t1 circuits.  Would give
me a visual indication of how things are working without poking around in
the log files manually.  I already have MRTG installed on my Raq4i so I was
hoping to use that.
