It is probably a mailwatch 'issue'.
We have several MailScanners running (We filter about 50k emails every
day after greylisting).
My boss wants a common backend so we don't have to check several logs
when there's a problem.
And honestly i thought i could take a shortcut by asking here whether
logging in SQL is dangerous and may overwrite something :)
I'll ask the Mailwatch people, or look through the code first.
Thanks for your help and great software :)
