    Troubleshooting log file (Outlook Express SP2)

    Under Tools, Options, Maintenance, there is a section for troubleshooting, and various checkboxes for requesting logs for mail, news, imap & http. I've enabled these checkboxes and receive email but cannot find these logs anywhere. I've searched my entire C drive for *.log but don't see anything that looks like an oe log file. I even sorted the search by date, and there are no log files with a creation date of today.

    Anyone have a clue as to where the log might be or why it's not being created?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you enabled the viewing of hidden and system files in Windows Explorer?

    I found the following here.....

    In the top menu bar of Outlook Express, select Tools and Options. Look under the Maintenance Tab. In the Troubleshooting section, where it says, Outlook Express can save all commands too and from a Server in a log file for troubleshooting purposes. Check the Mail box, click Apply and OK.
    This will give you something to look for in the next Tip, but they wont start building up until you next go and send or retrieve mail.

    And from MSKB. Or the rest of the Google search. HTH <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks - that is what I had already set, but I still can't find any log files.
