Email Delivery Metrics
This topic describes the metrics emitted by the metric namespace
oci_emaildelivery (the Email Delivery service).
Overview of the Email Delivery Service Metrics
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Email Delivery (Email Delivery) is an email sending service that provides a fast and reliable managed solution for sending high-volume emails that need to reach your recipients' inbox. The Email Delivery service metrics help you measure counts for accepted mail, email complaints, emails hard bounced, and emails soft bounced. Accepted mail consists of the unique emails accepted by the Email Delivery service to send. Emails are defined by the number of unique emails, as well as the number of unique recipients per message attempted to be delivered, resulting in successful delivery and blocked email. For example, sending an email with 10 recipients means 10 emails accepted. Email complaints consists of the number of email complaints for a sender by the Email Delivery service. Emails hard bounced consists of the number of emails hard bounced (permanent failure) for a sender by the recipient domain's email service. Emails soft bounced consists of the number of emails soft bounced (persistent transient failure) by the recipient domain's email service or due to an inability to reach that service.
Email Delivery is billed for every 1,000 emails accepted.

- IAM policies: To monitor resources, you must be given the required type of access in a policy written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. The policy must give you access to the monitoring services as well as the resources being monitored. If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which compartment you should work in. For more information on user authorizations for monitoring, see the Authentication and Authorization section for the related service: Monitoring or Notifications.
