Unhappy How can I read root's mail using postfix on RH9 ???


Can anyone help me sort out my problem. I am just unable to read root's mail on my machine using local mail box. Is there any way to use pop3 as root ? Is there any trick for this ?
I think/hope I configured root's mail to be forwarded to a user but still no mail...

Set up an alias in /etc/aliases OR /etc/postfix/aliases depending on where you've setup Postfix to look. The alias would look something like this:
root: asafnaot

If your user is asafnaot.

Afterwards, run postalias:
postalias
To save the changes, and restart postfix:
postfix restart

Cool

Did you do newaliases after you've changed your /etc/aliases ?
