 ====Log File Sizes==== ====Log File Sizes====
 +The **Log File Sizes** tab allows you to control the maximum size of various types of log file, and how long the files are kept.
 +===How long to keep OLD log files===
 +  * **Keep** [-] **old log files** - //The number of **.lbk** files to keep for each type of log - this is the default setting, and usually requires less disk space, but on a busy server, some log files will only cover a few seconds before filling up//
 +  * **Keep old log files for** [-] **days** - //The length of time to keep old log files - this can result in lots of files being stored, but should ensure you have time to inspect an issue, before the logs are overwritten//​
 +===OLD Log file disk usage===
 +  * **Use no more than** [-] **MB for old log files (*.LBK)** - //This setting limits the amount of disk space taken up by old log files//
 +  * **Delete old log files (*.LBK) if less than** [-] **MB free disk space** - //This setting prevents VPOP3 from completely filling up a disk with old log files. When this threshold is reached, VPOP3 will begin removing old log files, to free up more disk space//
 +**//​Note//​**:​ Despite these settings, VPOP3 will not delete any **.log** file, or the most recent **.lbk** file.
 +===Maximum file sizes===
