I said "kern.nosuidcoredump" is for OpenBSD, not Linux. And it's 
something different on Solaris too.

It has to start as root, then drops privileges to whatever run-user and 
run-group are set.

Have you made sure that /etc/syslogd.conf is configured to accept all or 
debug level messages for mail?

	mail.*		/var/log/maillog
	mail.debug	/var/log/maillog

If you change /etc/syslogd.conf, remember to "pkill -HUP syslogd" for 
the changes to take effect.
