Chapter 5 Logging
Delivery logs record critical information about the email
delivery operations of the Cisco IronPort appliance — for
example, information regarding each recipient delivery and
bounce at the time of the delivery attempt. The log
messages are “stateless,” meaning that all associated

recipient hosts. You must specify the total number of SMTP
sessions to record in the log file. As sessions are recorded,

all sessions have been recorded by deleting or editing the
