I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and I am trying to disable logging for both Postfix and Dovecot. Does anyone know how to do this? I have found references stating that there is a setting in /etc/syslog.conf but that file does not exist on my system.

Please help!

If you want to disable postfix logging just comment out the lines associated with "mail", the file is pretty self-explanatory.
