The Audit Log feature of the Print2Email lets Administrators monitor the outgoing emails. The Print2Email will log every sent email, date, recipients and the username who sent the email.
The Audit Log feature runs as a Windows Service on the system; therefore, the audit logging continues even after every user logged off from the computer.
To enable the Audit Logging feature, please navigate to Print2Email > Administrator tab > enable the Create Audit Log option.
To set the Log directory, please click on the Browse button next to the Log directory field.
NOTE: The log file directory path cannot be longer than 232 characters.
A new Audit log is generated every day. By pressing the Open Directory button, users can open the directory where the log files are saved. The Print2Email creates log files by using the current date.
For example, if the user uses the Email Sending feature on 20th of July, 2020, the Print2Email creates the following log file into the specified directory:
C:\Windows\Logs\Black Ice Print2Email\Print2Email_07_20_2020.csv
The Audit Log contains the following information:
- Date and Time when the email was sent.
- The status of the email sending.
- The username who sent the email.
- The recipients (To, CC, BCC)
- The sent file names
- The email subject
Example for the Audit Log:
07/20/20 20:01:16,"Sent","John","firstname.lastname@example.org"," email@example.com "," firstname.lastname@example.org", "Test.pdf","My subject"
07/20/20 20:02:26,"Sent","John","email@example.com","firstname.lastname@example.org","", "Test.pdf","My subject"
