    Since I'm using CentOS 5 , /var/log/messages gets submerged by the same log message all time over again:

    What's the cause and how can I fix it?

    thank you

    It is not errors but just notifications. Why you want _fix_ it?

    Any news on this? I am having the same problem. I can't even search /var/log/messages for what's important anymore because it is saturated with these notifications and I can't figure out how to disable them. Here's an example. There are several hundred per minute!!!!

    All I see is a bunch of hosts connecting to your SMTP server. That's pretty normal when running an SMTP server. I don't see a problem really.
