    • Competition-Report - Activate log file writer: Here you can enable the logging into log files.
    • BCC for all emails: This setting is for debugging purposes. Every time an email is sent a BCC email is sent to this email address, as long as this setting contains a valid email address.

    • Display email address for support or extension request: Here you can set the email address that will be displayed on support and update requests.
