SunOS 5.9 mail logs

If someone sent me an email using mail, sendmail, or mailx would there be some supporting logs? I am unfamiliar w/ SunOS and looked in /var/log/syslog and /var/mail but didn't find anything matching my name. I just want to see some generic information like which command was used, the date, time, etc - not looking for a copy of the email. Thanks!

Check
Code:
grep mail /etc/syslog.conf

Not quite what I was looking for but I believe this just shows where all logging is configured to be kept correct? It definitely helps - gets me looking in the right direction.

All the logging related to the mail service.
