How can I reduce the size of the pop3service.log in SBS 2008?

My pop3service.log in SBS 2008 is getting quite big at 80 MB.  Is there anyway to manage or limit the size of this log in SBS 2008 other than deleting the log file itself?

Thanks.

Increase the interval of time for checking your pop3 accounts?  Or move to Exchange fully and stop using pop3 checking - its really meant as a transitional tool, not a long term solution.

80 MB is not really that large, but if you don't want to delete it you can delete the entries within the log up to a date of your choice.
Some of the other logs are known to grow very large, such as up to 30GB. There are articles which address those:

Sorry I know of no way of limiting the size of the log file. I would suggest however making sure verbose logging is disabled to do so from a command line change the local directory to:
C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin>
then run the following command:
pop3connector.exe -lognormal
