There are several options that need to be in place before syslogd can
record the activity of ifmail. Look inside /etc/ifmail-2.10/CONFIG and
see if you included these options.

1. LOGFILE ="/var/log/ifmail/iflog"
2. Syslog facility codes need to be set to LOG_LOCAL0
3. When you compiled ifmail, include the direcitve -DHAS_SYSLOG

Lastly, for syslogd to record the activity, you'll need to add an entry
in
your /etc/syslog.conf file.

Local0.* /var/log/ifmail/iflog

Also, don't forget to restart syslogd after you make these changes.

Kill -HUP syslogd_process_id

That otta do it for now...
