The first thing a newbie looking for Kodi support learns is that he or she will first need to provide a copy of their error log, otherwise it’s impossiible to figure out how to fix what’s broken. As soon as a newbie’s asked for their log, they panic. Retrieving an error log from your Kodi device isn’t necessarily as straight forward as some would hope, which is where this new tool comes into play. Using the Kodi Log Emailer tool, you’ll be able to send your error logs to yourself or to anyone else, directly through the Kodi interface.

The Kodi Log Emailer is available from our community repository for easy installation, and was developed by LittleWiz. It allows you to conveniently login to your email account at a variety of providers in order to send your Kodi error logs to yourself or to whoever is helping you troubleshoot whatever problem you are encountering. This is probably the easiest method currently available for retrieving your Kodi error logs for purposes of debugging and troubleshooting of issues. Follow the guide below to learn exactly how to use the Kodi Log Emailer.
