Sendmail won't log to /var/log/maillog
I have a Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 system (update 8, fully patched) with the stock sendmail RPM installed. I cannot convince sendmail to log to /var/log/maillog. Instead, it insists on logging to /var/log/messages. The /etc/syslog.conf file is completely stock and includes these default directives:
No amount of restarting/reinstalling sendmail and ksyslogd have made a difference. I opened a case with Redhat support but after a week of sending them configs and sysreports, they've been silent. I suspect there's a bug in the syslog daemon somewhere. If you've got any ideas, I'd be glad to hear them. Thanks!
