Re: System users that receive mail in /var/mail/systemuser?

I do wonder whether it would be safe to reject any mail for
system-accounts (uid <1000 || uid >63434) unless it is redirected with
            cu andreas

Or just redirect all such mail to root, that way you don't have to keep /etc/aliases up to date for every package installed that creates a user.
