Nothing I can see as "wrong". In full "Rainerscript"
the mail part would be written as (copy from my config,
please adapt the file="" part as you like):
if      ($syslogfacility-text == 'mail') then {
         action(type="omfile" file="/var/log/mail/all")

Try and check, if this works, well OK, if not, ask again.

Ah, and please check if there is a SELinux problem with the
logfile, it could be a permission problem.
