[Techtalk] pop3 logging to /var/log/messages...

I was setting up a new server and discovered that
every time pop3 email is checked, it writes this
bit of info to /var/log/messages...

My current server does not do this because I've
happily switched to qmail, so I am unfamiliar
with how to correct/change this behavior on a
"normal" Redhat 7.3 system.

There is no option in /etc/xinetd.d/popa3d to turn
off logging or redirect it.

Where do I look to change this functionality...?

     the neurotic, the erotic and the tommy-rotic.
