I also think dccm had this feature.  I don't see a way to restore it,
because the log file is not necessarily renamed before it is the
potential rejectino message is generated.

I was thinking of a line in each dccm log file perhaps after
the occassional "sendmail.cf-->{dcc_isspam}..." lines.

A 10 GByte /var/dcc/log/ directory argues for having the I-number
in the syslog message so that the right file can be found with
`find /var/dcc/log -inum`.

A 10 GBYte /var/dcc/log directory also suggests a need for `dccm -lD?..`
or even `dccm -lM?`.
