Hi,

Has anyone come across a way of reading the log files that are created when you turn logging on for outlook 2007 (filename Logcalb#)

I can open them in notepad or similar but it is mainly inteligable, I know they are supposed to be used for support with Microsoft, but it would be handy to be able to read them for the support purposes that i have here.

Thanks
Mark.

Mostly OPMLog.log will have most of the error details related to the MAPI outlook profile. You may check for errors and search the Microsoft support website or Google for getting details regarding the issue.

Hi,
Thanks for the replies.

There is no extension, just called Logcalb# (# being the number of the file created sequentially).
The log file in "Outlook Logging" as you say is the MAPI one but the one i am trying to open is the calendar one mentioned above.

Cheers
Mark.

Hi,

Yeah, i got that info from Microsoft, I am waiting to see if our account manager there can send me a reader, but was just wondering if anyone else had come across one already.

Cheers
