Sendmail logfile summary tool

mreport is a simple C program that processes /var/log/maillog or whatever you specify as the mail log. What is probably its only limitation is that it can only process sendmail logs. Nevertheless, it makes very nice summaries of the mail logs, and can be useful for system administrators that are tired of poring through sendmail’s copious logs trying to figure out how well their mail server configuration is holding up.
