updated timestamp


fedora core - 2.

1.
I started IMAP server ( dovecot ), apache , sendmail & used the webmail application ( squirrelmail ) to use mail services. After that, I have been getting some strange messages in my logfiles which are described in the following paragraph :

userhelper[6193]: pam_timestamp: updated timestamp file `/var/run/sudo/root/unknown'
userhelper[6224]: running '/usr/share/system-config-users/system-config-users' with
root privileges on behalf of 'root'
dovecot-auth: pam_succeed_if: requirement "uid < 100" not met by user "user1
"
what exactly is this ??
2.
when i run
# mail
the following message appears....
