You need to provide a lot more information of much better quality than this if you want someone to help you.

Things that might help include, but are probably not limited to:

- A clear coherent description of exactly what you problem is.

- An explanation of what you mean by 'BOGUS files'

- The output of 'ls /var/mail'

Not much anybody can do to help you if you do not supply the requested information that Arizonagroovejet asked for.
