An approach for monitoring electronic messages received at a server is disclosed. Message information for a plurality of electronic messages received at the server: is determined and stored in a queue. Based on the queue, aggregate information is generated for a particular network address of a plurality of network addresses. The aggregate information is generated for each time interval of a plurality of time intervals and displayed for the plurality of time intervals. In some implementations, input from a user is received, and based on the input, a modification is made regarding how future electronic messages from the particular network address are handled by the server. In some implementations, combined aggregate information is generated for two or more network addresses and then displayed. In some implementations, aggregate policy information indicating which policies have been applied to the electronic messages is generated and displayed for the time intervals.
