Location Of Log Files
In the Log files section you can see the path to the folder containing log files and a feature to remove old files. The log files are stored in the installation folder in the Logs subfolder. To quickly browse to the Log files folder click Open next to the field showing the location of the Logs folder. During a single day, the program may create plenty of text log files in the following name format: YYYY.MM.DD_00001, YYYY.MM.DD_00002, YYYY.MM.DD_00003 etc., where Y stands for the year, M for the month, D for the day in which the file was created. The maximum size of the file is 2 MB.
It is not possible to change the location of log files.
Since in a single day the program may end up creating a very large number of log files, a tool to automatically get rid of old files may prove exceptionally useful. To have the old files removed after a certain period of time, enter the number of days in the Delete log files older than X days (fig.2).

Remember that the log files will not be deleted instantly once you have entered the number of days after which the program removes old files. The removal of files will be initiated with the next message processed by the server.
In the Logging level section you can specify the level of verbosity for logging. By default, the level is set to Standard (recommended when the program functions correctly). If CodeTwo Exchange Rules 2003 deviates from its intended behavior, it is recommended to set the Logging level to Detailed by choosing the mode from the dropdown menu.
