The Audit Event History report displays all events that occurred on the Mail Express server within a particular date range. The report displays the IP address from which the event initiated, the user who caused the event, the type of event, and the severity of the event. The severity level can be any one of the following types:
Informational - The default severity level for most events. Denotes an event that is expected under normal operation.
Warning - Denotes system issues that are recoverable.
Error - Denotes system issues that are not recoverable.
In the Event Type column, you can place your cursor over the event to view a tool tip about the event. For example, for an invalid login, the User column is empty and the Event Type column displays Login Attempt. When you place your cursor over Login Attempt, a "What's this?" cursor appears and the tool tip displays "Login attempted for [username] from [IP address] successful? [false]."
Refer to Audit Event Types for details of the various types of audit events in the Event Type column.
