Not what I need, what *you* need.  Seriously, *you* have to learn how to
figure this stuff out.  Indeed, this log file looks barren of most of the
normal things you'd see in a functional mail server.  I suggest you first
make sure your mail server can send and receive email without using any
mail client at all (use command line sendmail command or similar).  Watch
the log file in a different window when you do so:

tail -f /var/log/maillog

> PHP-Mapi instantiated 7,1,14,51822

That's a PHP extension for Exchange and I don't know why it would be
"instantiating" over and over so quickly for an idle system. Doesn't look
good to me.

Then that's another problem you should try to clear up first.

This is the correct command:
