This is not what you claimed, AFAIK. You said that you get no MailScanner 
messages to mail.log. Is that *really* the case or is it only the sa 
scores that you are missing? For me that's quite a big difference.

You can set the log facility in MS. I don't know if that applies to SA 
scores, I do not log SA scores. You do realize that your syslog.conf 
creates a lot of additional logging for mail, even to the xonsole? Just 
grep mail from the file to see what I mean.
