Email logs

SWSD offers a comprehensive email log. The log is a detailed deliverability report on all emails sent from your SolarWinds account. Email logs can help administrators determine whether recipients are reading the emails they receive and troubleshoot deliverability errors.

Common deliverability issues include:

  • Invalid emails. Email address or domain name was invalid, or an ISP reports that the email supplied is invalid.
  • Blocks. Blocks occur when an email address does not exist in the domain or the destination mailbox is over quota.
  • Bounces. Bounces occur when your email has not been successfully delivered and the reported reason is the email bounced.
