Mail.log

Is it possible to disable logging of sent and received mail from certain users to the mail.log file?

I think the answer maybe "NO" , you can " man syslogd" and it can give you some infomation .

You can't disable certain users' mail sent/receipt information , but you can disable all user mail infomation

Hi

Normally it is not possible (By using a script it may be possible). U can stop receiving mails for a user but that also will be logged in /var/adm/syslog/mail.log.

Yes, it is possible.
Not with default HP tools, though. If you replace syslogd by syslog-ng, then you can define regular expressions by which you can "sort" logentries to different logfiles. YOu'd normally specify /dev/null as logfile for stuff that's not to be logged.
Postfix/BIND/Security/IDS/Scanner, you name it...
