mail.log not edited when sending e-mail by sendmail

Hi all.

I've got sendmail Version 8.9.3 working on HP-UNIX 11i v1.
I spent a couple of days to solve sendmail related problem (thread is ttp://forums.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1438598) and tested sending emails so many times and my mail.log got bigger.
So i zipped mail.log and created a new file under /var/adm/syslog.

But when i send e-mail thru sendmail, no logs are written in mail.log. I've already restarted sendmail service but still log not edited.

What should i do to make sendmail to edit mail.log??

Hi Tom,

# /sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
# mv mail.log mail.log.old
# kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslog.pid`
# /sbin/init.d/sendmail start


Test send mail and mail.log
