    When we tail -f /var/log/maillog
    it's empty nothing happens.

    Exim is working fine no problems but Mailscanner won't install property and I noticed nothing is happening at all inside the maillog file. I have tried to run /scripts/exim4. We are running the latest. What can we do?

    Check syslogd make sure it's running properly.

    Also /etc/syslog.conf and make sure its' configured:

    I checked in /etc/syslog.conf
    and the line reads exactly as you have it.

    also restarted /scripts/restartsrv_syslogd
    and it came up fine.
