Root mailbox.

Hey guys,

I have a Redhat 7.1 mail server using Sendmail. I have few accounts including the root's in the server.

I'm trying to retrieve the root's mails into my outlook client. Even though I know the root password, the password for the root's mailbox is not the same as the login password. Maybe the username is not "root"??
Do you guys any idea?
Thank you.

no its not possible ( in normal condition) that the password will differ ..... check out the alias file for root user.
