I have installed an centos machine running zimbra with apf firewall. I only have a few ports open to the outside such as 25,443,110 etc. I have installed ossec to keep an eye on this but every no then I get a message which gets emailed to my phone about 12 times. I don't mind the odd 1 but I want to stop this.
I enclose the ossec email below and the ip address does change so not the same 1. I just need to know how I can sort the issue.
