Debug MTA options

From Messaging Server Technical Reference Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Debugging of various general MTA facilities and components may be enabled via several options. Note the distinction between debugging (verbose output especially focused on problem detection) vs.transaction logging (recording of processing) vs. event logging (call-out logging of events of particular interest).

These MTA-wide facility debug options enable certain sorts of (generally MTA low level) debugging irrespective of what MTA component is operating. For component specific debugging, including "higher level" debugging of that component's specific operation, see also component level debugging such as the channel level master_debug and slave_debug channel options, or the debug Job Controller option or debug Dispatcher option.

For a quick view of whether/what debugging you may have enabled, try:


msconfig> show *debug*
