Hello everyone,

I'm running Postfix 2.5.5 on a Debian system and I'm trying to get
AWstats to process my postfix mail log. I've read all FAQ at awstats'
and postix's homepage and none is aplicable.
As I read on
it is said that LogFormat has to be:
LogFormat="%time2 %email %email_r %host %host_r %method %url %code %

As I read help for these wildcards, I realize that:

%time2 Date and time with format: yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss

And my log file is not %time2 it should be %time3:

%time3 Date and time with format: Mon dd hh:mm:ss or Mon dd
hh:mm:ss yyyy

as I see on postfix's log:

Mar 14 06:30:37 externo2 postfix/pickup[11701]: EDC557B82AE: uid=0
Mar 14 06:30:37 externo2 postfix/cleanup[16392]: EDC557B82AE:
Mar 14 06:30:38 externo2 postfix/qmgr[22768]: EDC557B82AE:
from=<root(a)externo>, size=1142, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Mar 14 06:30:38 externo2 postfix/local[16483]: EDC557B82AE:
to=<root(a)externo>, orig_to=<root>, relay=local, delay=305,
delays=305/0.06/0/0.11, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to mailbox)
Mar 14 06:30:38 externo2 postfix/qmgr[22768]: EDC557B82AE: removed

Each mail access to smtp has several lines (one for from, another for
to...) in log, so the awstats filter will never get the info it wants.

Has anyone succesfully configured AWstats to fit Postfix's 2.5.5 log
file format?

Thanks in advance.
