Description Eli Wapniarski 2011-08-21 16:45:22 UTC
With Fedora 15 and cyrus-imapd-2.4.10-1 I get the following message in maillog over and over again:

imap fetching user_deny.db maillog

Thanks for looking into this

yes, but this has low priority

some background:
- cyrus-imapd sends all levels of messages to syslog, (debug,info,warn,error,...)
- there's no option to enable/disable debug messages in cyrus-imapd
- syslog accepts mail.* (including debug) messages by default, but because mail.* is not used only by cyrus-imapd, it won't be the correct fix to change that (as default)

so we need to implement new options for enabling/disabling debug messages in cyrus-imapd, but it's low priority task, especially because there is simple workaround available. In /etc/rsyslog.conf change:

mail.* .....
mail.info ......

and restart rsyslog:
service rsyslog restart

Comment 3 Michal Hlavinka 2011-12-12 15:00:51 UTC
syslog(LOG_DEBUG, "fetching user_deny.db entry for '%s'", user);

has LOG_DEBUG priority, so this should be fixed with the fix for bug #754940
