I'm now wondering if there is some program I need to
install to get root mail going. Seems like there was
one under Debian but don't remember. I do remember
having to remove something to stop the excess root
mail after I got tired of it and which was nothing
important. Surely Feisty does generate a fail amount
of root mail so that I should see something when I
start mutt? Thanks for the help. Looks like mutt is
working now and maybe some problem with postfix.cf but
no root mail.
As a new Ubuntu user, one thing I noticed also is the lack of root
mail. Most of this comes from cron, I would bet. I also noticed that
my user crontab also generated no mail. I added a MAILTO=halb to that
one, which got mail back to where I was used to. You might try that
in /etc/crontab if you think the root mail you are missing is a result
of cron runs (I haven't tried that yet).
There's no "root mail" in Ubuntu, by default, because there's no "mail" in
Ubuntu - ie, it doesn't install even a local SMTP program.
