Default Logrotate not starting a new log file at cron.daily time?

People,

Every day I want to run a script on the current, complete maillog file
so I set it up in crontab for 04:01 - one minute before the cron.daily
logrotate happens but all the maillog log files start with lines in the
file that vary between 03:00 and 04:02 - how is this possible? -
shouldn't they all be after 04:02?

Thanks,

Phil.

It would help if we saw the script and the logrotate configuration.
