A few weird things
Heres an example of an email that doesn't have a qmgr log line
Mar 25 12:47:49 monet2 postfix/smtpd: connect from monet2.ngv.vic.gov.au[127.0.0.1]
Mar 25 12:47:49 monet2 postfix/smtpd: 51F2234008: client=monet2.ngv.vic.gov.au[127.0.0.1]
Mar 25 12:47:49 monet2 postfix/cleanup: 51F2234008: message-id=<E8045EC3A155BD409100E6062B338EE51278F2TITIAN.boh.ngv.local>
Mar 25 12:47:49 monet2 postfix/smtpd: disconnect from monet2.ngv.vic.gov.au[127.0.0.1]
Mar 25 12:47:54 monet2 postfix/smtp: 51F2234008: to=<someemail.addr>, relay=mailhost.ng-london.org.uk[220.127.116.11], delay=5, status=sent (250 MAILHOST.ng-london.org.uk: Message accepted for delivery)
why would this be?

I am using a separate syslog box collecting for our two mail servers,
I don't think its uses stream to do that.
Whats the postfix default?

Whats the signifiance of "."?

So I am safe to use the cleanup log lines as my "enter queue" time?
