Hi all, we run a web-based helpdesk application (made by us) for clients, and one feature of this application is that it automatically e-mails 'alerts' to clients. However sometimes we get complaints that the e-mails aren't being sent.
Is there some easy to use add-on for our server that will easily let me check the e-mail logs for outgoing e-mails.
Our server maint. people tell me we can log in via root to the Exim main logs, but that's not too user-friendly a method for us. Is there any better tool - that might be more 'accessible'?

One trick might be to create a password protected site on your server with the DocumentRoot of that site set to the main directory of your Exim log directory. If you set the Apache options to show directory listings, all the Exim log files will be directly accesible through your browser.
But as I already mentioned be sure to use proper .htaccess settings to control access to this site, because otherwise everyone may be able to view your logs.
