Default Logs not working??? (newbee Question)

Good day all,

I Have followed the ubuntu 6.06 perfect setup and Installed Postfix, Courier, MySQL.

I tried both ISPConfig & DTC Panel with no luck and went to installing Webmin, Usermin, Virturalmin for virtual domains.

I got the first virtual domain setup and working as far as email goes. Next task will be to try and seup squirlmail for webmail and I have seen a few threads on this.

Before I get going down that road however, it seems like I am not getting any messges logged.

When I tail -f /var/log/mail.info I do not see any activity at all. The last msg I see is from about 6 hrs ago, But I know that mail is moving. How can I check to see whats happend to my logging?

I tried posting my ps -aux results but it was too long - I have attached them here. (psaux.txt)

Thanx - WaveQam

If you don't see any activity, but are sure you're sending/receiving mails, this means that the mails are sent using another server. Please check your domains' MX records like this:

dig mx mydomain.com
