Thanks for the quick reply. I have created and set that regkey now. I set it to 3 percent.Re: Email addresses
I send to a distribution list now for sysadmin monitoring events, however, I also include a couple other people that don't need to get all sysadmin events, but need to see backup events (e.g., on-site desktop support guy responsible for swapping disks but not for managing server or backups).
For the sending address, it is personal preference I guess. I have always made up an address for each service sending to me, e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org
. Almost every other email report I get allows me to set the sending address separate from the to address, and put multiple to addresses: firewalls, UPSes, printers, MS FSRM, Veeam B&R, etc. Also, many allow me to even craft the sending name in the field (e.g., Veeam on Servername <email@example.com>)
