The Import (IMPORT.EXE) utility included with versions 3.0 and 3.0b of Microsoft Mail for PC Networks includes an option to create a log of the Import process. If you specify an invalid path and filename, the file is not created and no error is given.


If you do not specify a filename, the Import utility will default to IMPORT.LOG. The output file is placed in the LOG directory of the Mail database. You can specify a directory and filename; however, if the specified directory is invalid, the IMPORT.EXE utility will run normally but will not create the log file and will not report an error.


Sample Command Lines for IMPORT.EXE


import admin -p<password> -f<filename> -l
import admin -p<password> -f<filename> -lm:\log\import.log
import admin -p<password> -f<filename> -lc:\import.log


import admin -p<password> -f<filename> -lm:\lgo\import.log

Because LGO is not typically a valid directory in the Microsoft Mail database, this incorrect command line will fail.
