I've browsed it, I'll have a look at it asap.

No entries in cracking.d and no relevant ones in violantions.
I now have this:
schamper:/etc/logcheck# grep -r postfix *
That are the only files that have someting about postfix in them.
Every file has postfix.* in it.

The severity is 'Possible Security Violations': e.g.:
Oct 18 16:21:56 schamper postfix/cleanup: 0C40D5150: reject: header Subject: dont dare to intimate bcos of ur bro too little? oboebefell; from=<email@example.com> to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>: SecuritySage SPAM-ID: h20030701-45001 Your email had spam-like header contents.

Because I put "postfix.*" in those files, it should discard everything
of postfix, right?
