Subject: Re: Re: Re: Re: BMX log searching

Understood.  However, that is not the transaction-id I want -- what I want to 
see is this one:

Mar  5 13:11:40 mscan2 sendmail[14906]: o25JBbDk014895: to=<rws@soandso.com>, 
delay=00:00:03, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=esmtp, pri=135822, relay=[x.x.x.x] 
[x.x.x.x], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (1040517 message accepted for delivery)

The '1040517' is the message ID from my CommuniGate Pro host that we send 90% of 
our mail to once BMX scans it.  Right now, I have to go grep'ing through 
/var/log/maillog for this.
