is all the smtp replys

but the phpmailer try catch only catches two types of exceptions
I only get this trapped
  echo $e->errorMessage(); //Pretty error messages from PHPMailer
and not this
echo $e->getMessage(); //Boring error messages from anything else!

but I want all types of errors to be logged

This is not a php thing. Your mail server is what handles any errors (being messages from the remote mail server) and logs them
Depending on your server set up you may not have access to it with php.

For "catch" to work you have to use "try" and it's not shown in your example code.  I think I would fix that first, then create the SSCCE so we have something we can test with.  You can use var_dump() to print out the contents of the exception object.

using phpmailer try/catch
how can I vardump and trap this error

try {
  $mail->IsHTML(true);
$mail->IsSMTP(); // telling the class to use SMTP
$mail->SMTPDebug  = $smtpdebug;                     // enables SMTP debug information (for testing)
$mail->SMTPAuth   = $smtpauth;                  // enable SMTP authentication
$mail->SMTPSecure = $smtpsecure;                 // sets the prefix to the servier
$mail->Host       = "smtp.gmail.com";      // sets GMAIL as the SMTP server
$mail->Port       = $port;                   // set the SMTP port for the GMAIL server
$mail->Username   = "username";  // GMAIL username
$mail->Password   = "password";            // GMAIL password  

 
  $mail->From = $mail->Username;
  $mail->FromName = "my name";
  
 $mail->AddAddress($email);




   $mail->Body='body';
   $mail->Subject='subject';
  
 $mail->Send();
  
  echo "Mail was sent.</p>\n";
  $email_wait=0;
} catch (phpmailerException $e) {
  echo $e->errorMessage(); //Pretty error messages from PHPMailer
  $email_wait=2;
} catch (Exception $e) {
  echo $e->getMessage(); //Boring error messages from anything else!
  $email_wait=3;
}

When your script uses the catch() statement it identifies two important pieces of data.  First, it identifies the kind of exception it can catch and it will not catch other kinds of exceptions.  Second it identifies the variable name that will be assigned to the exception object.  Man pages here:
http://php.net/manual/en/language.exceptions.php
http://php.net/manual/en/language.exceptions.extending.php

This little script illustrates what happens when you've extended the built-in PHP Exception class.

<?php // RAY_try_throw_catch.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
echo "<pre>";

// DEMONSTRATE A TRY WITH MULTIPLE CATCH BLOCKS
// EXAMPLE: RAY_try_throw_catch.php?q=1
// http://php.net/manual/en/reserved.exceptions.php
// http://php.net/manual/en/language.exceptions.php
// http://php.net/manual/en/language.exceptions.extending.php

Class ScrewUP
{
    // CONSTRUCTOR SETS A CODE PROPERTY FOR THE OBJECT
    public function __construct($q)
    {
        // CHOOSE AN INTEGER VALUE FROM ZERO TO THREE
        $this->code = 0;
        if (!empty($q)) $this->code = floor($q % 4);
    }

    // THIS WILL THROW SOME KIND OF EXCEPTION BASED ON THE CODE
    public function hiccup()
    {
        // THESE EXCEPTIONS WILL BE CAUGHT
        if ($this->code == 0) throw new Exception_zero('Hello');
        if ($this->code == 1) throw new Exception_one('World');

        // THIS WILL BE AN UNCAUGHT EXCEPTION: FATAL ERROR
        if ($this->code == 2) throw new Exception_two('Foobar');

        // THIS WILL BE AN UNEXTENDED EXCEPTION
        throw new Exception('Naked');
    }
}

Class Exception_Zero extends Exception
{
    public function __construct($x)
    {
        parent::__construct();
        echo "Exception Zero: $x ";
    }
}

Class Exception_One extends Exception
{
    public function __construct($x)
    {
        parent::__construct();
        echo "Exception One: $x ";
    }
}

// INSTANTIATE THE CLASS USING THE URL q= VARIABLE
$x = new Screwup($_GET['q']);

// RUN THE TRY/CATCH LOGIC TO THROW AN EXCEPTION
try
{
    $x->hiccup();
}
catch (exception_One $e)
{
    echo "I Have Caught Exception Number: $x->code ";
    var_dump($e);
}
catch (exception_Zero $e)
{
    echo "I Have Caught Exception Number Zero ";
    var_dump($e);
}
catch (exception $e)
{
    echo "I Have Caught an UnExtended Exception ";
    var_dump($e);
}
