Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a script running on my desktop that checks a specified e-mail account on my linux server. It looks for messages containing commands. Basically I can e-mail myself from anywhere and tell my desktop to do things. The only thing that annoys me about this is that every time my script checks the pop3 account on the server (every 30 seconds), entries get posted to my system log like this:
Feb 24 11:50:47 millions popa3d: connect from 192.168.1.9 (192.168.1.9)
Feb 24 11:50:47 millions popa3d: Authentication passed for automate
Feb 24 11:50:47 millions popa3d: 0 messages (0 bytes) loaded
Feb 24 11:50:47 millions popa3d: 0 (0) deleted, 0 (0) left
Feb 24 11:51:17 millions popa3d: connect from 192.168.1.9 (192.168.1.9)
Feb 24 11:51:17 millions popa3d: Authentication passed for automate
Feb 24 11:51:17 millions popa3d: 0 messages (0 bytes) loaded
Feb 24 11:51:17 millions popa3d: 0 (0) deleted, 0 (0) left
You can imagine over time this gets really annoying, makes finding more important messages difficult, and makes for relatively large log files. Can I get popa3d to stop posting these messages to my system log? If not does anyone have a recommendation of an alternate pop3 server which can be told not to post things to the system log so much?

Could not really find anything from a quick google search but give the the developers a contact and see if it can be changed from the app say /etc/sysconfig/popa3d file. If not I would have to think that maybe syslog-ng might be able to redirect certain logs to another log. If not the a log tool that can scan the log file and cut and paste the contents to another file.
