Yes it logs via syslog, however if it isn't told to log data to sm-mta and
sm-msp, no amount of syslog directive is going to do that. It's something
with the CentOS sendmail package that's disabling that.
When I do a stock Fedora install, I get three separate log files:
The same thing happens if I download the tarball from sendmail.org and
install that. Three separate log files.
However, with CentOS, for some reason, it never logs anything to those sm-*
files nor are they ever created.
I guess I'll have to break the yum dependency, remove the package and
install sendmail manually to get those log files. Seems rather dumb.
