#91 Log configuration - option to NOT log the IP address

Core (30)

currently logging in PFA can only be enabled or disabled. For privacy reasons it would be useful if the logging of IP addresses could be switched on/off in the config file. The IP address is currently stored in the logs together with the username.


  • There's one thing I don't understand in your request: What is the advantage of not logging the IP address?

    I'd understand the request for an anonymous service (which we obviously can't have for mailserver configuration) - but since we log the username (which allows to identify an user), I see no privacy advantage in not logging the IP.

    Therefore I tend to reject this request - unless you tell me what I overlooked ;-)
