Well, currently the log facility and priority popa3d uses are defined at compile time in params.h. If you're using the distribution-provided package you need to either get the distribution to apply the change or switch to building popa3d from source yourself. Where messages for a given facility/priority are routed is of course specified in /etc/syslog.conf. On some systems, the logging daemon (syslogd or equivalent) is able to route messages based on the ident ("popa3d" in this case). There you wouldn't have to apply any configuration changes to popa3d itself. -- /sd
