Look in the syslog file for logrotate where the original content for your
"recipe" is. There is *no* need to have an extra mail file for logrotate,
just get rid of it. Instead change MailScanner logging to a different file
and then use something like that. Look at the last line!
BTW: your question should have gone to the MailScanner list, anyway.
