    Is maillog.1 getting written to? (Try ls -ltr /var/log/maillog* - the most recently modified is at the bottom). If so it's a log rotation bug in CentOS. Try running pkill -HUP syslogd to get syslogd to close and open the rotated files. Search the forums for other discussions on this.

    You need to restart syslog.
