      I agree and I understood. Although, here is the impetus behind my change to produce more verbose logs.

      Postfix is seemingly logging to the correct facility:

      server:/var/log # postconf -d | grep syslog
      syslog_facility = mail
      syslog_name = ${multi_instance_name:postfix}${multi_instance_name?$multi_instance_name}

      Syslog is seemingly configured properly, as well:

      server:/var/log # grep mail /etc/rsyslog.conf
      # email-messages
      mail.* -/var/log/mail
      mail.info -/var/log/mail.info
      mail.warning -/var/log/mail.warn
      mail.err /var/log/mail.err
      *.*;mail.none;news.none -/var/log/messages

      But yet, /var/log/mail.err, remains empty.

      Once again, I am refraining from changing much of the defaults in Postfix or within the OS.

      Thank you,
