There are 2 ways to do this! --I am talking SLACKWARE -- recompile popa3d... Before it, RTFInstall instructions-- change the logging facility on params.h from default to #define SYSLOG_FACILITY LOG_LOCAL0 create an entry for that login facility on your /etc/syslog.conf file. Restart syslog (slackware = /etc/rc.d/rc.syslog restart) I have used slackware since early 1990s and taht is all I am talking about here, do not ask me about any other distros becaue I do not know them. The other and for sure shortcut is. Stop syslog (Slackware = /etc/rc.d/rc.syslog stop) Make the following entry on your /etc/syslog.conf file #vi /etc/syslog.conf !!popa3d *.* -/var/log/popa3d Since /var/log/messages is set to capture anything info or higher or lower than warn, then make sure popa3d is excluded by entering the line. ;popa3d.none; After the change, your default line on messages should read something like #Log anything 'info' or higher, but lower than 'warn'. #Exclude authpriv, cron, mail, and news. These are logged elsewhere. *.info;*.!warn;\ auth.none;mail.none;popa3d.none;news.none -/var/log/messages Save the changes Create the /var/log/popa3d file (slackware = touch /var/log/popa3d) Make sure the perimission for the file are set correctrly using chown Restart syslog (slackware = /etc/rc.d/rc.syslog start) Monitor the activity of your new log file (slackware = tail –f /var/log/popa3d) Log to your pop-mail client, check for new messages and see the activity logged in /var/log/popa3d.
