RE: Exim mail

Hello Daniel:

Please check if this was actually a root account that generated this e-mail.

I recall that ANY sender that gets access to the e-mail port can generate an
e-mail thatmay APPEAR to be from root.

I also am newbie but not too green.

Jamie is correct that it is the false impression that you have received.
