Bug#1003728: debian-edu-config: nullmailer pollutes syslog on roaming workstations

On Debian Edu Roaming Workstations, the nullmailer pollutes /var/log/mail.info* and /var/log/mail.warn* and lets it rise to several GB if notebooks stay of campus often / for long periods.

I'd suggest disabling nullmailer syslog writings entirely.

Opinions on this? Other suggestions?


the problem here is that in combination with fsautoresize (on small SSD, such as 60GB), /var will grab all LVM-available space and grow to 10G before /var finally gets filled to 100%.

So, removing log files doesn't even fully help, because /var is oversize afterwards.
