Eximstats gives some useful information, but (on my machine) it's output
is much longer than the logwatch script.  I think adding the additional
"non-matched" lines would be the better plan.  I run about 1200 Messages
daily, and my last logwatch run had 8 unmatched lines.

The lines appear to come from tighter controls than my exim
configuration file uses.  These can be collected into %DontAccept, and
counted / acted on accordingly, unless there's a need to track these
some other way.

Finally - because I don't generate these errors either... having a
slightly larger log file base to work/test from would be useful.

-- Obviously, I may not be the best to comment on "keeping" the script,
as I've put some work into the current one.

Thank you,
