Read the description of *log_selector* in the *Exim Specification* chapter
on Log Files, and the options you can set with it. :-)

Be careful when thinking about what you're wanting to achieve. The "H="
field logs the IP address (and optionally port) of the remote server,
whereas the "I=" field records the IP address (and optionally port) of the
interface on your own server. In your example you indicate you're expecting
something like ":25" to be logged, which suggests you're possibly
interested the port number your Exim has received the connection on rather
than the port at the far server that sent you the message.

Cheers,
Mike B-)
