Its been discussed before, the anwser was (and probably still is) no. Simply because it creates a security risk; the idea is to give as little information as possible. The informative error message is really only relevant to administrators, thus why it's logged to logs\Error.log.

In the event that an attacker was attempting to obtain someone else's login/password to the FTP server, via brute forcing, why give them "tips" to what they're doing wrong?
