    Default Emailing logging reports


    I've been working on a lesson in logging in Java, formatting in XML. I'm trying to add an appender to e-mail the error log, but can't seem to get it to work. Is there a piece I'm missing? The rest of my appenders are working fine. The error I get is that it cannot create an appender of this type. The console also seems to think that I defined the appender after I call for it, but it is above. Here is what I put together:

    <appender name="EMAIL" class="ch.qos.logback.classic.net.SMTPAppender" >
    <filter class="ch.qos.logback.classic.filter.LevelFilter">

    <subject>${emailSubject} - Job: ${com.minnesotamutual.jobName}</subject>

    <layout class="ch.qos.logback.classic.PatternLayout">
    <pattern>%d{HH:mm:ss.SSS} [%thread] %-5level %logger{36} - %msg%n</pattern>

    And then call it within the logger:
    <appender-ref ref="EMAIL" />

    Any help is greatly appreciated! I'm very new at this. Thank you!
