Monitoring: messages-submitted

The messages-submitted variable reports how many messages have been submitted (usually using SMTP Submission) for delivery. If one message is sent to twenty recipients, this usually counts the message just once (although a few clients silently send the message twenty separate times).

The messages are queued in the database until they can be forwarded to the outgoing smarthost. They're counted by messages-sent when they are forwarded to the smarthost.
