I have my syslogd configured to send messages associated with 
the mail process to a seperate log file via the /etc/syslog configuration 

# Mail -related messages (exim / tpop3d)
mail.=debug;mail.=info;mail.=notice    -/var/log/mail/info                    
mail.=warn  		               -/var/log/mail/warnings  
mail.err   	                           -/var/log/mail/errors                  
Since tpop3d is well behaved in its' use of the syslog facility, all my 
messages from tpop3d go into the proper log file in /var/log/mail.
