User Statistics
Hello:

If there is a place where Gossamer Mail is weak as a product, this place is certainly in the kind of statitics that are not provided. I would have hoped to see a more detailed approcha to user stats.

I also assume that this would be easily doable with a few codes here and there.

What I would like to see is:

1) Under "List All" (Users), further details such as the number of emails in each account.

2) The number of messages would be broken down into two categories: Total Messages, Messages This week and messages today.

3) In fact, right now, there is no way to really know if an account is active or not in Gossamer mail. So, another elements to include here would be: Messages read, and Last Login. Basically, instead of having people "blindly" purge messages, a visualization of inactive account on the List ALL page would be better. So that, i addition to purging according to dates, Admins can also delete individual accounts on the "List all" page".

4) Even worse, there is almost no usage stats beyond one hour. In other words, Admins can see usage stats only to one hour. It would be good, once again, to have usage stats that go beynd one little hour.

On the BUGS front, I see that the number of users is not updating correctly. For instance, if I had 700 users, and deleted 100, my count should normally resume at 601 when a new user registers. But what I see is that Gossamer mail will in fact continue with the count at 701, even if, in reality, there are only 601 users.

Another thing is that I am not sure if the BOUNCE feature is really working well. From the "List All" in the Admin, I tried going in one of the user's email. I saw there that some of the mails were sent, not to the name of the user specifically, but to addresses like "members@ns1.actualserverdomain.net" or Undisclosed.Recipients@ns1.actualserverdomain.net:.

THis is a bit unsettling because the "@ns1.actualserverdomain.net" would be the real server name's domain, and not the virtual domain's account. Secondly, I thought that the bounce feature would not let any message not specifically targetting the user through to an account. In other words, if the TO: is an address other than the address of this user, then it would bounce the message. Is my understanding wrong or is my install totally useless?

JUst my 5 cents, with the hope that guidance can be provided heer as to how to solve these issues.

Thanks.
