The RelayFax Server maintains a continually updated and highly detailed log of all Faxing Events and POP and SMTP Sessions. In the top section you can assign a name for your server log file. In the next section you can specify the maximum permitted log file size and configure several other logging-related options. At the bottom of this pane you can choose which contact manager to use by default. You can choose either the Windows Address Book or Address Express.

Server Log

File Name

Designate a name for your server log file here. It is called RelayFax.Log by default. Do not include the path to the file; only enter the filename.

Logging Options

Create a standard set of log files

Click this option to maintain a standard single set of log files.

Create a new set of log files each day

If this option is selected then separate log files will be generated each day. The names of the files will correspond to the date they were created.

Create log files based on the day of the week

If this option is selected, separate log files will be generated for each day of the week. The names of the log files will correspond to the day of the week on which they were created.

Log SMTP Session Activity

Click here if you want the log to contain transcripts of SMTP session activity with your mail servers.

Log POP Session Activity

Click here if you want the log to contain transcripts of POP session activity with your mail servers.

Log each service into a separate log file

Click this checkbox if you want RelayFax to maintain separate logs by service rather than in a single file. For example, RelayFax will log SMTP activity in a separate log file than other activity.

Enable debug logging

Click this check box to enable debug logging, which is more verbose and resource intensive. This is only recommended when you are attempting to diagnose a problem with RelayFax.

Maximize log file size [XX] bytes

Use this control to designate a maximum size (if any) for RelayFax's log file. When the file reaches this size it will be saved with the file extension *.OLD. Then, a new RelayFax *.Log file will be created and maintained until it also reaches the maximum size. At that time the *.OLD log file will be overwritten by the new *.OLD file, and so on. If you do not wish to lose previously saved *.OLD files then you must save those files under a different name or extension before the RELAYFAX.LOG file reaches the maximum allowed size.

If you designate Max Size [xx] Bytes as 0 the *.Log file will never be saved as *.OLD and then reset. However, depending upon the volume of server use, this could result in a very large log file.

Contacts Manager

Choose this option if you wish to use the Windows Address Book as your default contacts manager in RelayFax.
