It's meant to run through the syslog daemon, syslogd handles the DAY/TIME
logging for it. If you want that stuff, hack it in yourself and send in
patches, or find someone to do it for you. That's what OpenSource/Free
Software is about.

Theres a script in the ifmail-xx.xx/contrib directory called sumlog. If
you've got any perl (or even shell) abilities you should be able to rip
that up and make what you want.
