Qmail: No traffic or comon log

    Hi someone please help me out here

    I have Plesk 7.5.3 Up to date (Writen time) whit the following components from 4psa.com:

    • 4PSA Clean Server
    • 4PSA Client Backup
    • 4PSA Spam Guardian

    This is running on a FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE

    The rest is standart setup.

    The problem is now, that i can't find any kind of lock files for Qmail nor inside plesk see any mail traffic statistic.

    I would really like to be able to see the Qmail log file, so I can set up spamtraps.

    And It would be nice to see how much traffik the difrent clients generate by mail traffik.

    Anybody who know what to do?

    PS: Don't forget to tell me the answer like a 2 year old kid :)

    *.notice;authpriv.none;kern.debug;lpr.info;mail.crit;news.err /var/log/messages
    security.* /var/log/security
    auth.info;authpriv.info /var/log/auth.log
    #mail.info /var/log/maillog
    lpr.info /var/log/lpd-errs
    cron.* /var/log/cron
    *.emerg *
    # uncomment this to log all writes to /dev/console to /var/log/console.log
    #console.info /var/log/console.log
    # uncomment this to enable logging of all log messages to /var/log/all.log
    # touch /var/log/all.log and chmod it to mode 600 before it will work
    #*.* /var/log/all.log
    # uncomment this to enable logging to a remote loghost named loghost
    #*.* @loghost
    # uncomment these if you're running inn
    # news.crit /var/log/news/news.crit
    # news.err /var/log/news/news.err
    # news.notice /var/log/news/news.notice

Then the last question, how do I reload/restart/reload /etc/syslog.conf (syslogd) whitout rebooting the system. and If you know what is the common command to reload objects insite /etc/ I will be happy
