add email subject to maillog (sendmail log file)

add email subject to maillog (sendmail log file)

I need to add the email subject to sendmail (8.13.8+Sun).   I understand I can do that in the sendmail.cf   How can I do this for both the local.cf and sendmail.cf, and even the submit.cf so I can see the subject in all the maillog entries.

This is a solaris 10 server.  I found 2 of the same suggestions that did not work.

I added this to my sendmail.mc file and rebuilt but the subject did not appear in the logs.

RE: add email subject to maillog (sendmail log file)

I got this to work.  I had to link both local.cf and sendmail.cf to the resulting file.
