My exim_mainlog is 53 MB
I set my logs to 50, but this one is still getting bigger.

Anyone have a sollution?
I read a other topic, and I says that my log must be called: mainlog but, if I deleted it, It will make it by himself exim_mainlog
(and the logviewer is searching for mainlog and nog exim_mainlog

maby that is the problem.


Use freeBSD_4.8

If you restart exim it should rename exim_mainlog to exim_mainlog.1 and create a new one :s As it should rotate the log itself.

I think freebsd this log doesnt get rotated, I am not sure if can use newsyslog for this as that HUP's syslogd but I dont think exim uses that to right to its logs so the process would need restarting as well.
