Log settings

You can specify the kind of messages to be logged and you can optionally set the maximum log file size. There are three levels of logging. You can log all errors, warnings and information. Alternatively, you can log warnings and errors or errors only, or you can disable logging completely.

Click Configuration > System > Log settings.

Transport (SMTP) scanning logging level

Select a level of logging from the Windows event logging list or accept the default.

Select a level of logging from the File logging list or accept the default.

Optionally, check the Limit log file size to checkbox and enter a number in the MB box. If the log file reaches its maximum size, the file is renamed by adding a time-stamp onto its name, and a new log-file is created.

Exchange store scanning logging level

Select a level of logging from the Windows event logging list or accept the default.

Select a level of logging from the File logging list or accept the default.

Optionally, check the Limit log file size to checkbox and enter a number in the MB box. If the log file reaches its maximum size, the file is renamed by adding a time-stamp onto its name, and a new log-file is created.

Click Restore defaults to restore the factory defaults.

Note From the Manage changes menu, click Save changes to save your configuration.

The log files for SMTP and Exchange store scanning (SMTPScan.log and ExchangeStoreScan.log) are located in the Logs folder under the PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange installation directory. If Windows Event logging is enabled, PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange writes logs to the Windows application event log.
