Filemode Option

Introduced in release: 7 Update 4

Updated in release: 8.0


The filemode logfile option, component.logfile.filemode, specifies the file mode in octal used to create log files for the specified component. The value will be masked with octal 0666 and the process umask to set actual log file permissions. If you want a process with a different userid but in the same group as the Messaging Server user to have read access to log files, use 0640. The store.umask option can be used to modify the process umask to allow this.

Note that the filemode option does not apply to MTA debug logs or MTA transaction log files.


For the 8.0 release and later, it is no longer necessary to modify the umask.


The default value is: 0600
