    postfix: no mail.log file?


    I am trying to get postfix working with sasl tls and was getting Authentication errors and looked in the mail.log file and saw them. well then I whacked those files(stupid me) thinking they would be recreated when I restarted postfix. I was wrong and now the mail.log file seems to be just gone! I keep restarting the server but there is no /var/log/mail.log file anymore. How do I get this back so I can debug?

    I remember from the log it looked like postfix was having trouble talking the sasl server or something so I got auth denied because of that I guess. Wish I could get these logs running again.
    thanks,
    dean

    are there other files? like mail.info mail.err ....

    you could try
    Code:
    touch /var/log/mail.log
    you might have to change permissions on the file though, and then restart

    and then try and not use root
