I don't have SuSE to verify the paths but the general idea is to copy




And edit

LogFile = maillog
LogFile = syslog

To cover all the logfiles you want to look at. [This is one of the
reasons there is a dist.conf directory also so distribution can set this
stuff up for you. :/]

Any follow ups to this should go to logwatch at logwatch org as this is
not a MailScanner problem - Thanks
