Yes, as you've said, Mailwatch is only for MailScanner.

Anyway, I think that I have soo much traffic to have a solution like
rsyslog/syslog-ng (in real time) or MW. I'm searching for a script that
parses the logs (each hour, for example) and stores SMTP/MailScanner
data in MySQL; then a web interface in PHP.

I think that I'll have to program it myself :)
