Hi and thanks!

It works fine now, find the problem with the newsyslog -v command.
It told me, unknown group 'root'.
Offcorce, Im so stupid. Root-group is
a old habit from Linux =)

Changed from:
> /var/log/qpopper.log  root:root       640     7       *       @T00    Z
> /var/log/proftp.log   root:root       640     7       *       @T00    Z 

To:
> /var/log/qpopper.log  root:wheel      640     7       *       @T00    Z
> /var/log/proftp.log   root:wheel      640     7       *       @T00    Z

Hmmm... that looks fine to me.  What happens if you run:

    # newsyslog -v

I assume that newsyslog is actually running every hour -- that's the default
from the system crontab:

    % grep newsyslog /etc/crontab
    0       *       *       *       *       root    newsyslog

and that the other system logs are all being cycled as intended.

        Cheers,

        Matthew
