Why can't over quota notifications be followed through the mail.log?

Some users have reported that they have received mail_administrator messages for being over quota, but they look like abnormal messages. There is no record of these messages in the log files, for example, in the mail.log_* log files.

Here is an example of one of these messages:

Subject: Overdraft notice

Content-Type: text / plain; charset = us-ascii
