Email logging will send the specified e-mail address the end portion of
your log whenever you do a fetch or flush.

It doesn't really matter what you set your message size to.  It has to
be greater than zero for it to work, though.  It will send the last <n>
bytes where <n> is the number of bytes you specified.  I have mine set
to 1024.

This is just the e-mail appears to be sent by.  You don't have to change this.

Yes, that's right.
