Hi everyone,


I got a weird problem with mail which I want to solve.

For the solution, I need to raise the loglevel so I can see what happens when Mail communicates to the server.

When I search for it, I come across some very easy methods, for OSX Server...


I tried a lot of things already.

running the apple script /library/scripts/mail scripts/turn on logging scpt had no effect

I modified the loglevel in syslog.conf to mail.debug, which had no effect

I modified and added -c -d as application arguments

I modified the loglevel in the file of Postfix which had no effect.


Does anyone have an idea what to try next?


Very frustrating that you have to go through such loops for only raising the loglevel while in the server version, you can just go to a menu and raise it...

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
