Before you get started with this guide, you have to complete some basic steps.

Mail Integration

Change directory to /usr/local/safesquid/api

Command:cd /usr/local/safesquid/api

Important Notes

  • All the fields are mandatory except ccinfo. Set the value as none if you would like to leave the field empty.
  • toaddr and ccinfo can have comma separated values
  • Leaving any of the fields empty would lead to malfunctioning of the Reporting Module. So make sure to set the value as none for empty fields.


The mail has been scheduled to be sent at 7am everyday using a cronjob which is configured automatically while installing the Reporting Module as shown below.
