We are attempting to show the value of Total Messages Submitted on an smtp server using wmi, however the value resets to 0 every time the server is rebooted. Is there a way to keep building on the existing value and not have it reset?

Dear Jesse,

this is then the mail-server resetting the counter. PRTG just reads the counter and displays its value, it's not possible to increment then.

Best Regards.
