Default mail.log rotation

I'm sorry for crossposting, but I need a solution to a problem induced by ISPConfig.

I'm using Debian Etch with ISPC and Postfix on which by default the mail logs are rotated by syslog's cronjob around 06:30 every morning. Problem is, that at 23:00 an ISPC cronjob starts mail_logs.php which does something to mail.log (gather statistics and stuff), copying it from here to there, starting a new one, ... pretty weird and not really documented stuff.

Question:
Can't you use something more spohisticated, leaving the original log files as they are, so ISPC's cron job does not interfer with other cron jobs?

In the meantime:
Is mail_logs.php something so cool I wouldn't want to live without it running every night or may I just throw it out of my crontab?

Thx
