Is there a way for an admin to get an alert if a user account sends greater than a specific number of emails a day?  I know there are limits a user can send by default but I say I want to know when a user sends more than 100 messages a day. is that possible with EO?

Nothing out of the box. You can create a script that periodically polls the message trace data and generates some stats, and sends an email when a given user reaches a certain threshold. 

Ugh! Off to uservoice on this one. There should be a way for admins to get this information before a user gets flagged for excessive messaging...  @Vasil Michev 

Yeah, it seems like a good "insight", can definitely be useful in flagging compromised accounts as well. Share the link so others can vote it up :)
