Use Diagnostic Logging

Use diagnostic logging to record significant events relating to authentication, connections, and client actions. Diagnostic logging for IMAP4 is written to the Windows 2000 event log and is set on the server hosting the IMAP4 virtual server. If multiple IMAP4 virtual servers are located on one Exchange server, each IMAP4 virtual server is logged at the level set on the host server. By default, a logging level of None is selected to log only critical and error events.

To set a diagnostic logging level:

  1. Start System Manager
    on the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to a server.
