Take a look at the SQL logging code in CustomConfig.pm. Should give you a
good starting point, you can easily modify it to output to text files
instead of a database if that's what you want.

But you might want to consider outputting to a database, as you need to
remember that there are multiple MailScanner processes, all wanting to log
at the same time.
