I have postfix running as a relay server. In normal configuration, postfix does logging for "from" and "to" header. I would like postfix to log additional extension header eg. X-Mms-Originator-System and X- Mms-3GPP-MMS-Version as example below.

Does anyone have any idea how to log this kind of extension header in postfix?

Best regards, SmileyOpp

You can use a header check ( http://www.postfix.org/header_checks.5.html) with the WARN target ( http://www.seaglass.com/postfix/faq.html#lgsbj), this will log your header. /^ X-Mms-Originator-System: / WARN should work
