The log files created by dccm or dccifd for messages with DCC total
recipient counts above the thresholds you have configured in 
/var/dcc/dcc_conf can be put into separate daily, hourly or
per-minute directories as described in the dccifd or dccm man pages.
The per-day, per-hour, or per-minute directories can be deleted
daily by the /var/dcc/libexec/cron-dccd script that must be run every
night or more frequently with a separate script.
That is often a better solution than turning completely disabling
mail message logging.

As mentioned in the distributed /var/dcc/dcc_conf file, logging can
be turned off completely by setting DCCM_LOGDIR='' or DCCIFD_LOGDIR=''
