Angry postfix LogWatch problem

You sound like you are familiar with LogWatch for postfix. I have a problem with it. I want it turned off! It has been years since I set up this machine and did not take good notes then. I don't remember how I turned it on but I want LogWatch OFF! It's annoying. Can you help me?

CatherineBennet, turning off LogWatch is easy -- it runs out of cron (in RH an entry in the /etc/crond.daily directory). Delete that cron entry and no more logwatch. But it really is a good idea to keep a close eye on your logs, and logwatch is a good tool for doing that.
