Default rsyslog logging 'mail' to both /var/log/mail.log & /var/log/syslog

Rather annoying... Ubuntu 10.04 LTS & cyrus 2.4.10 (compiled from source
if that makes a difference)

Logs to both /var/log/mail.log & /var/log/syslog and it's really

Standard /etc/syslog.d/50-default.conf

# First some standard log files. Log by facility.
auth,authpriv.* /var/log/auth.log
*.*;auth,authpriv.none -/var/log/syslog
#cron.* /var/log/cron.log
daemon.* -/var/log/daemon.log
kern.* -/var/log/kern.log
lpr.* -/var/log/lpr.log
mail.* -/var/log/mail.log
user.* -/var/log/user.log

and on...

How do I stop it from logging to syslog if it is logging to mail.log?

things like this...
