    On one of our servers the /var/log/maillog file is having duplicate entries. This log file logs when users access their POP accounts and records their IPs. However whenever someone logs into a POP account the log writes multiple entries it looks like 13 entries per connection. I just tested it myself and I know that I am not logging in 13 seperate times. Has anyone experienced this problem before? Is there a way to stop this? This type of activity quickly fills up our /var partition. Looking for any help.

    Thanks

    Does anyone else have this problem? We are having this problem on multiple servers and this seems to be some type of bug. Either in CPanel or something else.

    Assume you are running latest cPanel version? Posting your OS info may be helpful in sorting out your problem.

    I'm running Cpanel 9.9.8-C17. The problem is occurring on boxes that run both Redhat 7.3 and Fedora.

    Thanks chirpy. That seems to have fixed it. Yes there were a lot of extra entries in the syslog.conf file. Do you know of what might have added them there? I know I didn't. Thanks again!

    I believe there is/was a script in /scripts that was doing that - possibly exim4.
