    exim4

    Is there a way I can get more error messages with exim? I'm trying to log in using plaintext smtp authentication and all I get is this:

    use this command

    tail -f -n 300 /var/log/exim_mainlog

    You can set the value of n to any number you like. By default the tail command will show the last ten lines.

    Add the following line in you exim.conf file

    log_selector=+all
    that should give you pretty detailed log.
