Usage logs

Hosting accounts

If you also want to receive details of email sent to your account or the amount of diskspace/traffic you are using we can also provide weekly logs for this.

To enable email logs create a file called .emaillogs in your home directory. If you have a shell account, the simplest way to do this is to log in and issue the command:

touch .emaillogs

Or create a tiny or empty file, and upload it with scp. For example:

scp empty yali.mythic-beasts.com:.emaillogs

Once enabled, logs will be sent every Sunday to postmaster@yourdomain - make sure this email alias works.

For a weekly summary of diskspace and traffic, create a file called .usagelogs in your home directory, and a forward file .forward-postmaster containing the address to send the log. Again, logs will be sent every Sunday to the specified address.
