Tracking logs record information about the email operations of AsyncOS. The log messages are a subset of the messages recorded in the mail logs. The tracking logs are used by the message tracking component to build the message tracking database.
If you are trying to get the mail_logs...
You'll need to configure your logs via CLI: 'logconfig' or GUI: System Administration -> Log Subscriptions. Edit, or suggested to create a new/copy of the log you are needing off-appliance, and set the push as needed per your environment ---
Log Retrieval Methods Log files can be retrieved based upon one of the following file transfer protocols. You set the protocol while creating or editing the log subscription in the GUI or via the logconfig command during the log subscription process.
Log Transfer Protocols
Manually Download This method lets you access log files at any time by clicking a link to the log directory on the Log Subscriptions page, then clicking the log file to access. Depending on your browser, you can view the file in a browser window, or open or save it as a text file. This method uses the HTTP(S) protocol and is the default retrieval method. NoteUsing this method, you cannot retrieve logs for any computer in a cluster, regardless of level (machine, group, or cluster), even if you specify this method in the CLI.
FTP Push This method periodically pushes log files to an FTP server on a remote computer. The subscription requires a username, password, and destination directory on the remote computer. Log files are transferred based on a rollover schedule set by you.
SCP Push This method periodically pushes log files to an SCP server on a remote computer. This method requires an SSH SCP server on a remote computer using the SSH1 or SSH2 protocol. The subscription requires a username, SSH key, and destination directory on the remote computer. Log files are transferred based on a rollover schedule set by you.
Syslog Push This method sends log messages to a remote syslog server. This method conforms to RFC 3164. You must submit a hostname for the syslog server and choose to use either UDP or TCP for log transmission. The port used is 514. A facility can be selected for the log; however, a default for the log type is pre-selected in the dropdown menu. Only text-based logs can be transferred using syslog push.
If you are wanting to just copy over a specific set of logs for a one-time review or to provide... then, assure that FTP is enabled on the interface. Then, using standard CLI from your desktop - ftp <IP/hostname>. You'll be in the /configuration directory when you finish authenticating onto your appliance. After - just simply use standard FTP commands to retrieve the log files you are after.

You can then use standard FTP/UNIX commands to navigate through the directory structure, cd mail_logs, for example and mget the files.

And so it will copy those off...
Once complete - the files will now be in the directory on your local desktop.
I hope this helps!
