Well, the quickest way is to see if it's actually there...

Here's what /etc/mail looks like on my system:
prompt: ls -al /etc/mail
total 204
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root   4096 2010-06-28 09:29 ./
drwxr-xr-x 81 root root  12288 2010-12-04 13:51 ../

-rw-r--r--  1 root root     63 2003-05-04 18:36 trusted-users

-rw-r-----  1 root root  12288 2006-02-01 15:11 virtusertable.db
And the content of /etc/mail/trusted-users is:
prompt: cat /etc/mail/trusted-users
# trusted user list (this is equivalent to setting class "t")
(that's the comment and a blank line).

Double post reported. Ribo01, why do you continue to ignore moderators asking you not to double post, as well as other users trying to help you?
