* --list lists individual message audit logs on the file system, including their timestamps and sizes as returned by stat(). * --backup creates a backup of the message audit logs in tar format and uploads the resulting file to the specified URL. Supported upload schemes are scp and ftp. * --restore restores message audit logs from the specified URL. Existing logs are overwritten. The mallog command attempts to ensure that the backup specified by url is a valid message audit log backup and the backup is not corrupt. * url is the location to which the package of information is transmitted by SCP or FTP. Prefix the URL as described in Table C-7.
NOTE: Running mallog --backup or mallog --restore stops email processing while these commands run. No inbound email or outbound email is delivered during this time. If your organization's email availability policies are strict, it may be appropriate to only run these commands during off hours.
