    You should be able to configure your mail server to send any failure message though the syslog daemon.  There is a process in Zenoss to interface with syslog events, I have not used it myself however and don't have the specifics.

     

    A little digging in the admin docs and in these forums might get you what you need, but I would definitely investigate the syslog daemon as your interface between your mail server and zenoss server.

    This is something I have not done before, and I am and will be slammed at the office for at least 2-3 weeks.  If it's still a thorn in your side by then and I have some free time, I will look into it.
