Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Cant locate logs

I set up Simon to test connections to a mail server over a week, and it didn't create any log files as I selected, or I'm possibly looking in the wrong place. Can i export these logs another way?

Re: Cant locate logs

The logs are displayed at the bottom of Simon's window (click on Activity etc in the sidebar or View menu). When you select a test, it filters the logs to only show entries for that test.

You can copy selected lines from the log, or save to a file via File > Save.
