syslog.conf question

I'm trying to direct all messages produced by the kernel,
incoming/outgoing mail, rlogin/telnet messages and such to different fi=
in my system.

In /etc/syslog.conf i have these 2 lines (and a couple more, but they a=
not interresting):

*.*;mail.none /var/adm/errors
mail.* /var/adm/mail

And it works (halfway anyway)... No mail-messages is written to the
"errors" file, they are written to the "mail" file. But now the strange
things starts. All rlogin/telnet messages is written to the "mail" file
also... Why does this happen?? Have i done something wrong??
