Centos 6.4 and /var/log/maillog

I am having some issues with a Centos 6.4 image on a VPS. I cannot get SENDMAIL to write to the file maillog. I even did a chmod 777 /var/log/maillog but nothing. Just to be safe, I sent some mails from the command prompt as root to eliminate any doubts regarding perms...nothing. This translates to OpenEMM 2013 R2 not reading and setting any bounced addresses. That is a big issue for me. Does anyone have any insight in this?

Thanks,

Mario

sendmail isn't writing directly to /var/log/maillog, it uses the syslog mechanism. So this looks like something is wrong with your syslog configuration.

Hi ud,

Yeah I had to reinstall the log service and give maillog the right perms. I dont know why rsyslog went crazy but you were right.

Thanks very much and warm regards,

Mario
