Default How does email traffic accounting work?

I'm seeing some unrealistically high reports of email traffic use on one site, and I'd like to troubleshoot it. How does ISPconfig2 do traffic accounting?

Emails are dlivered with provmail to the mailbox. When a email gets recieved, procmail measures the email size and send this size to a ispconfig script by email. This ispconfig script then writes the mail sizes to the mysql database.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
