Postfix /var/log/mail.log on Debian is blank. I tried touch /var/log/mail.log and then service rsyslog restart but /var/log/mail.log is still blank. What should I do?

  • Are other /var/log/mail* files present? Is postfix up and running? – AnFi Jul 26 '17 at 8:51
  • Other postfix logs are blank too. Postfix is running - going to check if it is up. – Michael Jul 26 '17 at 10:01
  • Update: Postfix is (and was) up to date. – Michael Jul 26 '17 at 10:07
  • /etc/rsyslog.d/ is empty, there are no folders or files. – Michael Jul 27 '17 at 8:23
  • Which debian version are you using? – sebix Jul 27 '17 at 9:07
