    I did a hybrid install of The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1) and Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota, SpamAssassin, ClamAV)

    My syslog is getting cluttered with entries about every piece of email I get.
    It is also logged in the mail.log file so I don't need it logged twice.

    Did I miss something or is this what's supposed to happen?
    How do I stop these entries into the syslog?

    You must modify /etc/syslog.conf to change it.

    Modify /etc/syslog.conf,

    Find this line:
    *.*;auth,authpriv.none -/var/log/syslog

    and change to:
    *.*;auth,authpriv.none;mail.none;mail.error -/var/log/syslog
