AFAICT the first one is a "catch all" log file, while the others are more
fine grained. In any event, these are the default values and aren't actually
used by Exim -- it has its three log files in /var/log/exim which don't
require editing /etc/syslog.conf. You can comment out those lines if you
don't have any other mail-related programs on the machine -- but don't do it
if you also have a POP3 server such as qpopper.
