I have been doing a lot of research trying to figure out this problem.
I have not been able to figure out the whole check process thing yet.
But, I have figured out that md_graphdefang_log is logging to the mail
facility where md_syslog logs to some other facility which goes to my
I am running this on Debian testing. I compiled MIMEDefang from
source.. I have used the Debian versions of the perl requirements.
When I first restart MIMEDefang, everything gets logged to the mail
facility. Then after about 5-10 minutes, the whole check process comes
into play and the logging changes to what I described above.
-------- Original Message --------
I just installed Debian testing this week from a Gentoo system.
Everything was logging correctly until today. My logs for MIMEDefang
were logging as.
Oct 28 04:15:02 apple mimedefang.pl: greylist: white; 0;
82.118.211.*; x; *@stikman.com;
Those are put into my /var/log/maillog log file.
But, starting today, the logs are now looking like this.
Oct 28 09:44:18 apple check: greylist: white; 0; 70.103.162.*;
And, the lines are now put in /var/log/messages.
If you notice it says the process is now check instead of mimedefang.pl
sending the output. How come that changed? I have restarted mimedefang
and sysklogd, but no change.
Any help would be appreciated.
