Specifies the directory where the MTA will store its log files. On NetWare and Windows, the default location is the mslocal directory in the directory specified by the /work switch. On Linux, the default location is the /var/log/novell/groupwise/domain_name.mta directory. See Using MTA Log Files.

--log /dir




--log /gwsystem/logs


Typically you would find multiple log files in the specified directory. The first 4 characters represent the date. The next 3 characters identify the agent. A three-digit extension allows for multiple log files created on the same day. For example, a log file named 0518mta.001 would indicate that it is an MTA log file, created on May 18. If you restarted the MTA on the same day, a new log file would be started, named 0518mta.002.
