    We want to make our server more secure by requiring our email clients to connect with SSL, but before we force this by the setting in the Exim Configuration Manager we'd like to see which clients (at least active clients) don't have their email clients setup that way. Looking through the maillog I believe the information I want is in there, but the question is how to extract it without having to learn how to use grep. Does anyone know of any tools that would help me?

    Hi @RetiredAF


    I don't know that there would be a way to troubleshoot connection issues without using grep. You could follow the logs to see what's occurring or you could have your client's use the configurator tool for SSL connections for their email accounts. You can get it at cPanel>>Email>>Email Accounts>>Manage>>Connect Devices

    Example of a simple grep:

    Code:
    grep email@domain.tld /var/log/maillog
    
    
    an example of tailing the logs:

    Code:
    tail -1000 /var/log/maillog
