Log file

Stalwart Mail Server provides the ability to log information to a text file that can be rotated at a specified interval. When the log method is selected, the following configuration options are available under the global.tracing key:

  • path: The path to the directory where the log files will be stored.
  • prefix: The prefix to be used for each log file.
  • ansi: Whether to use ANSI escape sequences to colorize the log output.
  • rotate: The frequency of log file rotation. Acceptable values are daily, hourly, minutely, or never.


method = "log"
path = "/opt/stalwart-mail/logs"
prefix = "stalwart-mail.log"
rotate = "daily"
level = "info"
ansi = true
