This procedure may not work in Windows 7 or Windows Vista due to security reasons.

To change the location of the adxloader.log file:

  1. Navigate to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Mimecast\Mimecast Outlook Add-In directory.
  2. Create a copy of the adxloader.dll.manifest file.
  3. Edit the adxloader.dll.manifest file in a text editor (e.g. Notepad). You'll need administrator access.
  4. Add the tag logFileLocation=”C:\new_location” (where ”C:\new_location” is the required location) as shown in the following lines:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <assemblyIdentity name="Mimecast.Services.Outlook.AddIn, PublicKeyToken=6bcc61dacb062332" />
    <loaderSettings generateLogFile="true" shadowCopyEnabled="true" privileges="administrator" configFileName="Mimecast.Services.Outlook.AddIn.dll.config">
    Your  file may look different to the above example. Do not change anything else.
  5. Save the file.
  6. Restart Mimecast for Outlook for the change to take effect.
