strange sshd syslog message
 
Hello,

Dec 30 11:56:08 plasma sshd[769]: PAM pam_putenv: delete non-existent entry; MAIL


Anyone seen this before, and can tell me why it appears in my syslog??

Cheers

Duncan

Im not sure, but it looks like PAM authentication to me. It's checking the user logged via ssh and finding out its not a local user it's deleting it's mail folder, or something along those lines. I think its perfectly safe, but check with someone else on this since i never worked with PAM.
Damn, two weeks away and i already forgot how to type fast....
