Default ISPConfig :: Postfix and Other "Monitor"

Installation of ISPConfig and Postfix seems to be working fine. I'm able to send/receive messages without problems.

I just wanted to know is there was a utility to see what actual messages are coming in and going out.

Is there a log file somewhere? If so, is there a way I can look at that file in real time?

Finally, is there a log of FTP connections, HTTP connections, etc. and some way we can see that log using ISPConfig?

The logfiles are in the directory /var/log

To see a log in realtime you can use the command "tail -f " followed by the name of the logfile. To exit press ctrl + c

Have alook at the different files in /var/log and the subdirectories. There you will find logfiles for all the different services on your server

Is there a way to see this graphically? Maybe within ISPConfig?

Maybe in future releases, but currently not.
You can have a look at MRTG ( http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/mrtg/ ) and at this thread: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=719

I am not sure what exactly you want to see, but you can also use webmin with the postfix plugin which has a submodule called "mail queue" - but this is just a graphical frontend for postqueue -p which shows you the messages in the queue. you can read them or flush them (means try and send them immediately) same as postqueue -f ;-))

###edit###
I do not recommend you to start and configure postfix with this frontend, as I do not know how it will interact with your manual changes and ispcfg but as I do not have ssh acces to my server from work, I have to use this
