You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
[root@oper-db ~]#

My server is RHEL 4 AS on x86

There is no mail in my mailbox
Would you please help me to solve the problem?
Regards
Faruque

At the very end you got a new mail message in root which was almost certainly an error about the command you tried to execute.

Just type "mail" as root and read the root mail you got to see what it is complaining about.
