To help diagnose POP3, SMTP & Internet mail problems, Microsoft included a logging option for Outlook 2000. This feature can be enabled through the registry.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new DWORD value and name it 'Logging' set the value to '1' to enable logging, or '0' to disable it.
Three log files will be created in the 'C:\Windows\Temp\Outlook Logging' directory the next time an Internet Mail session takes place. The files are 'InetXP.txt', 'Pop3log.txt' and 'Smtplog.txt'.
See the Microsoft Knowledge Base article below for more details on how to interpret the logs.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Outlook\Options\Mail]
Value Name: Logging
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: 1 = Logging Enabled, 0 = Logging Disabled
