I'm having issues with SMTP mail and i need to see the service responses in a more streamlined format.


Right now i'm just opening them up in notepad and it's not fun.

I use LogParser 2.2 with Visual LogParser. A lot easier than using Notepad or Log Parser alone.

Make sure the file in question is not in use by anything else; if unsure, run Log Parser on an old log file first to test.

Do you need to run log parser before opening with the visual tool?

Whats the command?

There may be an easier way if you are using IIS log file format. Just copy the file with .csv extension and open with Excel.
