vDR email spam

Crazy crazy amounts of email spewing from a vDR 2.0 appliance. VMware says this is a known bug and you could turn off email alerts and/or reboot your appliance on a regular basis. Drink Up.

Come on  guys, really? That's not acceptable. How about I limit the number of outgoing packets per day on port 25? It worked this morning... but long term I hope that VMware is fixing this bug.

iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --dport 25 -m limit --limit 10/day -j ACCEPT

Also I was trying to find a config file that would have the settings for the email reports, but perhaps this isn't kept in a config or xml file. find / -mtime -1 after I made changes in the UI didn't seem to point to any text files.
