Any interesting activeity is reported with:


The debug class will not provide any more specific information 
pertaining to rejects.

The manual.html has the regex for all SMTP responses returned by 
milter-sender, so even if you disable milter-sender logging, you can 
grep for sendmail log messages related to milter-sender.

There is a debug line from my milters related to rejects:

	/milter-NAME.* reply /

You could change the message's class in:


Look for:

	smfLog(SMF_LOG_DEBUG, TAG_FORMAT "reply %s %s %s", TAG_ARGS, rcode, 
ecode, work->replyLine);




	cd com/snert/src/lib
	cd ../milter-sender
	make clean install

And restart milter-sender. Then you should be able to grep for the one 
specifically interesting message related to rejects or special replies.

Since its control by an smf library function, I might added it as one of 
the special undocumented options or change it permanently to SMF_LOG_INFO.
