You may want to read the doc here: http://www.list.org/faq.html and
search for STEALTH.

I spoke in error, the local logging is not to your mailman error log but
rather to syslog. Please note syslog is handled differently on different
systems, you may have to tweak your syslog configuration to log the
mailman errors.

The only way I know of to disable STEALTH_MODE is to change its
hardcoded setting in the "driver" script, you will have to locate this
file and edit it. However, if you can, it really would be better to get
your syslog working, you do want these errors logged and it really is
better to keep sensitive information out of the public eye.
