Does anyone know how to read the exim_mainlog file? For example:

2008-12-07 05:55:41 no host name found for IP address 189.xx.xx.xx
2008-12-07 05:55:42 H=(fesintellex02) [189.xx.xx.xx] Warning: Sender rate 0.0 / 1h
2008-12-07 05:55:43 1L9IEg-00009m-Sp <= name@example.org H=(fesintellex02) [189.xx.xx.xx] P=smtp S=797 id=5310081119.20081111164582@example.org
2008-12-07 05:55:43 1L9IEg-00009m-Sp => mydomain <name2@mydomain.com> R=localuser T=local_delivery
2008-12-07 05:55:43 1L9IEg-00009m-Sp Completed

Can anyone explain what each of the above lines mean? Is this an email that was received by name2@example.com and sent from name@example.org?

If so, what would an entry look like for an email being sent from name2@example.com to name@example.org?

Thanks so much.
