And this probably is the easiest way to configure it. But, provided my
memory serves me well, nothing gets logged to /var/log/mail.log if I set
this up in the MUA . And I need some logs to /var/log/mail.log when
sending mails. Sendmail usually writes them excellently, and I want its
loggings. I do all my mail transfer stuff with sendmail, since long. I
just didn't find out so far how to handle this special problem.
