[tpop3d-discuss]pop before smtp and logging..

1. Ignoring the fact that pop-before-smtp is the root of all evil, has
anyone succesfully implemented this with postfix, using the builtin
system? I've had a look at the relaydbm script, but I must confess my
perl knowledge is sorely lacking, and if someone else has done this
already, it would make my life a lot easier, and far better than the
kludgy system I use now which tail -f's the logfile.
2. The tpop3d logging is reaaallly noisy. One single mail check appears
to generate 6 lines of logfile. With multiple users all checking the
mail on a regular basis (ie, every 2 minutes), the mail log quickly gets
very big. Realistically, I don't need the current verbosity level. Hell,
I'd be happy with just logging failed connections. I know this has been
asked before, but I couldn't find a good answer - is there a way to make
the logging less noisy? It would be really handy if it was a
configuration option so you could enable more detailed logging for
troubleshooting, but leave it nice and quiet for day to day operations.
