The format of the log file is subject to change. Currently, by default, each log file entry contains eight or nine fields,1 e.g.,
LOG_CONNECTIONis enabled, a plus,
+, indicates inbound to the SMTP server; a minus, -, indicates outbound via the SMTP client.)
BLOCK_SIZEkeyword in the PMDF option file. (For the Printer channel, the size field displays the job entry number on OpenVMS, and is always 0 on UNIX. For the
MAILSERVchannel, the size field is always 0. For the Pager channel, the size field is the number of pages sent.)
From:address. Note that for messages with an empty envelope
From:address, such as notification messages, this field will be blank.
|DA||Successful dequeue with SASL (authentication)|

|R||Recipient address rejected on attempted dequeue (rejection by master channel program), or generation of a failure/bounce message|
|W||Warning message generated regarding a not-yet-delivered message|
|Z||Some successful recipients, but this recipient was temporarily unsuccessful; the original message file of all recipients was dequeued, and in its place a new message file for this and other unsuccessful recipients will be immediately reenqueued|

PMDF may optionally be configured to log additional information to the
log file; see the LOG_* PMDF options described in Section 7.2. With
LOG_USERNAME all enabled, the format becomes as follows.
(Note that the sample log entry line has been wrapped for typographic
reasons; the actual log entry would appear on one physical line.) Where
the additional fields, beyond those already discussed above, are:
tcp_*channel entry), there would also be a thread id present between the process id and the count.
NOTARY(delivery receipt request) flags for the message, expressed as an integer.
ident*channel keywords; see Section 22.214.171.124. This sample assumes use of one of these keywords, for instance us of the default
identnonekeyword, that selects display of both the name found from the DNS and IP address.
1 The PMDF-FAX, pager and MAILSERV channels, having different---and in the case of PMDF-FAX more -- information to log, use an extended logging format. See Section 38.2.13 for details on PMDF-FAX channel log entries. See Section 28.4.3 for details on pager channel log entries. See Section 4.3.9 for details on MAILSERV channel log entries.
