Hey all -

I installed LogSentry on my new Ensim 3.1.1 server a few weeks ago and so far it's been extremely nice to have. One issue I've been having though, is that it seems to be alarmed about the maillog entries of when my pop3 mail checking program pings the server for new mail every minute. As a result, LogSentry's hourly emails are always packed with about 1000+ useless lines that just make it difficult to see "real" issues among the mess.

Here's an example (shows these lines in huge blocks, separate by type):

Type 1:
Oct 19 14:00:27 srv01 xinetd[1475]: START: pop3 pid=22406 from=xx.xx.xxx.xxx

Type 2:
Oct 19 14:00:27 srv01 ipop3d[22409]: pop3 service init from xx.xx.xxx.xxx

Type 3:
Oct 19 14:34:28 srv01 ipop3d[24027]: Login [email protected] host=xxxxxxxxx.isp.com [xx.xx.xxx.xxx] nmsgs=0/0
Oct 19 14:34:28 srv01 ipop3d[24026]: Logout [email protected] host=xxxxxxxxx.isp.com [xx.xx.xxx.xxx] nmsgs=0 ndele=0

If I don't check my email, then there's no entries like these at all.
Anyhow, I'm just wondering if any of you might have some tips on what to do about this... to get LogSentry to stop thinking this kind of activity in maillog is "unusual"
