Individual user's mail file in /var/spool/mail


hi guys,

I have a few users, and root (doh, hehe)

they all have their mails in /var/spool/mail/username

i realise cron output etc are all mailed to that user accounts mail...

and the mail will slowly swell.. and when it reach 2GB, it will cause the server to slow down..

what do you guys usually do with it?
What's the best way to handle it? divert the mail to an actual account?

thanks

Ehm, I don't understand your problem. Are you asking What am I supposed to do with the e-mail I'm getting?

Well, read it perhaps.
