I'm using MDaemon 13.5.1 in my company and I'm trying to get personalized mail reports with vantage premium. I'm using smtp-out.log but if a user sent a mail to several recipients, the mdaemon log records it this way:
Size (bytes): 51744
Attempting SMTP connection to [X.X.X.X]
Attempting to send message to smart host
Attempting SMTP connection to [X.X.X.X:25]
Waiting for socket connection...
Wed 2015-12-23 00:17:42: 03: --> MAIL From:<myuser@mydomain> SIZE=51744
Wed 2015-12-23 00:17:42: 02: <-- 250 2.1.0 Ok
Wed 2015-12-23 00:17:42: 03: --> RCPT To:<recipient@recipientdomain>
The problem is that I get two hits to that recipient and then it counts as two mails when is only one, I guess it must be because vantage is reading the two headers (To: and RCPT TO:) is there a way to solve this, maybe i'm missing some config to avoid this
Thanks in advance
Thanks for getting in touch about this. It sounds like you need to use a different aggregate in your report templates. Try editing your report template, Double-click a node that is currently showing the duplicated recipients count, and on the general page, click Add | Aggregate | Number of | Recipients
This will give you the number of the 'unique recipients' in your report - eliminating the duplicates seen when using the 'hits' aggregate, which is basically just the number of times the recipient appears in your log.

It relates to Microsoft Exchange tracking logs, but the general concepts can be applied to this situation as well.
I hope this helps! Let us know how you go!
