[Mailman-Users] Matching mailman logs with MTA logs

I suspect that there is an easy way of doing this, but I've missed  
it.  I attempted to search for this, but just never got the right  
search terms to turn up anything useful.

I would like to be able to find the corresponding MTA (in my case  
Postfix) syslog entries for each entry in mailman's own smtp log.  I  
know that I can match up by time, but is there an easier and more  
reliable way?

Along the similar lines, I'm thinking about retaining the full  
headers of all subscription confirmation messages.  (I can easily  
deal with the ones that come in by HTTP separately).  Does anyone  
have any suggestions about how to do this?

I'm using

    Mailman 2.1.6
    Postfix 2.2.5
    Python  2.4.1
    SuSE    10.0
