As the message security service processes your messages, data about these messages is captured and stored in a log. The Message Log Search feature enables you to run searches on this data using different criteria. You can then view the search results and drill down to details about specific messages.
Use Message Log Search to track messages for inbound and outbound traffic, and to track all messages for a specific sender, recipient, domain, or MTA address. You can also use Message Log Search to confirm whether a specific filter was triggered by a message and confirm the disposition. If necessary, you can later analyze filter settings that may be affecting traffic.
Note: Message Log Search data is managed and stored securely in Google data centers. At this time, Message Log Search is not offered to accounts on Systems 20. For more information, see About the Data.
Your access to the Log Search tab depends on your authorization privileges. Access to Log Search is granted initially only to administrators who have View Reports privileges. For more information about Log Search privileges within your organization, see Administrative Privileges for Message Log Search.
