Hi,
My rsyslog is not working as expected.
I have some thing in rsyslog.d that do well, like this:
# Log all iptables stuff separately
:msg, contains, "iptables: " {
     action(type="omfile" file="/var/log/iptraf/info")
}


No problems with that.
Bu what's in /etc/rsyslog.conf  like:
mail.*  /var/log/mail/info

don't do anything at all.
Rsyslogd -N1   is OK, rsyslogd -D -N1 looks good too as does
rsyslogd -d -N1.
Here is my rsyslog.conf.
What am I doing wrong?
# rsyslog configuration file

# For more information see /usr/share/doc/rsyslog-*/rsyslog_conf.html
# If you experience problems, see http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/troubleshoot.html

#### MODULES ####

$ModLoad imuxsock # provides support for local system logging (e.g. via logger command)
$OmitLocalLogging off
$ModLoad imjournal # provides access to the systemd journal
$ModLoad imklog # reads kernel messages (the same are read from journald)

# Provides RELP syslog reception
$ModLoad imrelp
$InputRELPServerRun 2514

#### GLOBAL DIRECTIVES ####

# Where to place auxiliary files
$WorkDirectory /var/lib/rsyslog

# Use default timestamp format
#$ActionFileDefaultTemplate RSYSLOG_TraditionalFileFormat

# File syncing capability is disabled by default. This feature is usually not required,
# not useful and an extreme performance hit
#$ActionFileEnableSync on

# Include all config files in /etc/rsyslog.d/
$IncludeConfig /etc/rsyslog.d/*.conf

# File to store the position in the journal
$IMJournalStateFile imjournal.state

# Set the default permissions for all log files.
$FileOwner root
$FileGroup root
$FileCreateMode 0644
$DirCreateMode 0755
$Umask 0022

#### RULES ####

# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
#kern.*                                                 /dev/console
kern.crit :omusrmsg:*

# Everybody gets emergency messages
*.emerg :omusrmsg:*

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
kern.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages

# The authpriv file has restricted access.
authpriv.* /var/log/auth/info
auth.* /var/log/auth/info

# Log all the mail messages in one place.
mail.* /var/log/mail/info

# Log daemon stuff
daemon.* /var/log/daemon/info

# Log cron stuff
cron.* /var/log/cron

# Save virus scan messages
local0.* /var/log/local0/info

# Save boot messages also to boot.log
local7.* /var/log/boot.log
