Watching the logs turn round and round

@lbutlr
I don't have a question, but I thought I'd share that I've found this extremely useful recently for watching the logs:

 tail -f /var/log/maillog | grep -v -E '(cleanup|dnsblog|postscreen|qmgr|anvil))'

It narrows the log down to the data that I'm most interested in (smtp, dovecot, amazes, etc).
