Yes, I know about the compile time switch :-) I just think it would
offer more flexibility if we could modify the syslog facility in the
configuration file - it's a lot of work to recompile the lot, just for
something simple like that. That said, I know there are alternate syslog
servers (rsyslog) that can filter based on regex for which a
syslog_prefix is provided for in the present imapd.conf.
I'm not much of a programmer, but I suspect a patch wouldn't be too
difficult -- but I may be wrong! :-) I'll look.
Thanks, and have fun frying those fish ;-)
