Erh, actually, yes I am. Documentation of the setting is rather sparse,
but I enabled it some time ago, expecting it to send the data to the
logging facility (syslog in my case), after which I forgot to check if
that actually happens. The current implementation is rather useless (to
me), so I turned it off again.

Thanks for the tip, but I think that this is actually a bug? Current way
of logging is not very useful, since the file '1' is overwritten (in
stead of appended to) with new data at every run of the mail() function.
