The IMail Syslog Log, records transaction and debug information when enabled in each of the servers (for example, POP3 and SMTP). This file shows the contents of lognnnn.txt, the System Log Service file.
Some typical log files are the following:
Files with names in the form of logMMDD.txt contain messages sent to IMail’s log server.
File names in the form sysMMDD.txt are messages from services that have their log file format set to sysMMDD.txt.
The W1yymmdd.log is the daily log file for the Web Administration server (when the Web Administration capability is enabled in the Monitor server).
W2yymmdd.log is the daily log file for the Web Messaging server.
The file extension also indicates the type of file.
.smd and .smp file extensions indicate regular mail messages being processed by SMTP.
.fwd and .fwp file extensions indicate forwarded messages.
.LST file extensions indicate messages to subscribers of a list server mailing list.
.tmp are Web Messaging, or Mail to Beeper/Pager, or Mail to Fax files.
.GSE and .GSP file extensions indicate error messages being returned to the senders. These are usually generated by the server (postmaster)
Files that contain a tilde (~) in the file extension, such as .~mp and .~md, are locked files that are in process. These files also have an underscore as the first character in the file name.
