Try adding this to your sendmail.mc file, at the bottom after the MAILER() 
declarations.  I should note that I'm running STARTTLS so that I can 
cryptologically authenticate anyone relaying through me, and therefore in 
addition to the Subject line I'm also logging the MD5 digest of the cert 
that sent the message, and/or the TLS status if verification wasn't OK.

Klog syslog

[Sendmail] Strange sendmail log...
Hello. I ran linux web+sendmail server for years. Recently i was noticed that my server appointed as spam mail sending black list. When i look into my sendmail log, it was surprising. Some Brizilian spammers are sending massive spam mail via my box. I think there was some hole in user name "apache". Now i'm changed username apache --> apache2, but it is same.

Log analyzer for sendmail, or other logs
is there a program, or script that I could use to view and analyze my log files. I know how to read them , and understand them, for the most part.

Help with sendmail not placing messages in mail log file
System: Apple OS X 10.4.1 Type: client machine, not server version Sendmail: 8.13.4 I have had intermitent problems getting sendmail to log any information to the log file when it runs as a daemon. the problems began with OS X 10.4.0, but after a recent update to the OS and a security update, the problem is no longer intermittent. If I use the mail command at the command line, or when sendmail starts, I see logged messages in /var/log/mail.log, but after the daemons are running mail sent does not log. My question is twofold: 1) what is different about the way that sendmail sends log messages when invoked from a command 'mail -vs Test localuser' and when it is called by a mail client simply opening an smtp port and sending mail commands (ie where the daemon sm-mta would be called)? 2) is anyone else (OS X 10.4) seeing similar dropping of log entries? By the way, the mail log does "work" as the entries such as the logs show: Jun 11 10:36:38 grendal sendmail[12607]: j5BEabwB012607: to=royar, ctladdr=royar (501/20), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=relay, pri=30036, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (j5BEacsj012608 Message accepted for delivery) Jun 11 10:50:41 grendal sm-mta[12706]: starting daemon (8.13.4): SMTP+queueing@00:05:00 -- Robert Delius Royar The email address is valid as it is written. ...

Making own Sendmail Log
Dear all, I want to make my own log file which can store information like follwoing for every mail. From: To: Subject: Attachment : y/n if y then Name of attachment. Can anybody help me ragarding this. I can write perl scripts very easily so if you can tell me some idea. The mail problem is how I will know that one mail has come because server is delivering every mail within 1 second so i was unable to do anything. Pls help Any help is appriciated.

From your statement of what the problem is it sounds like you might be trying to do this by parseing the mail box / mail dir / etc. The first things that comes to mine (especially sense you said Perl) is to use MIMEDefang (MD) as a Milter to have all messages pass through your perl script during the SMTP conversation. This will allow you to write your code in Perl which is what the filter portion of MD is written in. With MD you could easily pull From, To, Subject, Attachment Status from each message and log it where ever Perl can logs / wri...

sendmail log file
hi, i recently installed a new solaris 10 server after having run a solaris 8 server for about 4 years. on the solaris 8 server i have a /var/log/mail file that logs all the sendmail activity. my issue is that i can't find this file on solaris 10. where does sendmail get told where to place its log messages? i have a similar issue with /var/log/authlog, in solaris 8 that merrily logged all logins attempts, now in solaris 10 its an empty file.. how do i configure solaris 10 so that i see everyone that logs in (or attempts to login) to the machine? thx in advance stroller <smcbutler@hotmail.com> wrote: > hi, i recently installed a new solaris 10 server after having run a > solaris 8 server for about 4 years. on the solaris 8 server i have a > /var/log/mail file that logs all the sendmail activity. my issue is > that i can't find this file on solaris 10. where does sendmail get told > where to place its log messages?

The default is /var/adm/lastlog, if it exists. SSH etc goes into /var/adm/messages by default. If you aren't seeing any of these then there may be a problem with syslog. well i guess i do have a problem with syslog, its currently emp...

Sendmail Log administration
Hi, I work for an ISP and we begin to have huge log from our sendmail platform. I am looking for a program/interface to browse those log and find information like is this mail really arrived, has it been rejected and so on. We have some scipts but we need command line illetrates to be able to do this job. Also I was wondering if there was a program to convert those logs in an SQL database witch could be another solution.

Limiting Sendmail Logging?
Hi All, Another quick question - as our servers get busier and busier, they're generating a lot of chatty sendmail 'log info'. I know about the different logging 'levels' for sendmail (at the moment, we're still running the default, level 9). Is there any option, or can anyone think of a way we can get sendmail to 'not be so chatty' about delivery attempts... In an ideal world we'd love to only log: - Attempts that result in 'successful' delivery to remote site. - Attempts that result in 'permanent failure' from reomte site (and result in the email being returned). - Where it fails to accept an 'incoming' email from a client. This would free up no end of space, and resources - rather than at the moment logging hundreds, and hundreds of 'deferred' messages. Even attempts that result in no actual 'try' (because Persistant Host status info is 'current', and shows the last attempt to that MX 'deferred') is still logged :( Is there a way we can get anywhere near that goal? Thanks, JonB JonB wrote: > I know about the different logging 'levels' for sendmail (at the > moment, we're still running the default, level 9). > Is there any option, or can anyone think of a way we can get sendmail > to 'not be so chatty' about delivery attempts... In sendmail 8 you have - log levels - syslog priorities to control logging granularity. > Is there a way ...
