Mailive is an email monitoring system, similar to Gomez or AlertSite. But, it goes a bit deeper. Instead of just hitting the site and expecting a positive response, Mailive sends and email and expects a response.
You can set this up with Reliable Response Notification like so:
- Create a new user for Mailive.
- Add an email device which sends to email@example.com
- Find the Mailive user's email address. You can find this in the "Send a New Notification" screen. Search for a user, then click the blue arrow to find the email.
- Give this email to Mailive.
You should be good to go. This will provide a full monitor; everything from MX records to network connectivity to Notification's POP or SMTP service, to the core Notification engine.
