Re: Mail for root being delivered to user mail
maybe an alias for root has been set. Look in /etc/aliases , on my
system it looks like this:
# This is the aliases file - it says who gets mail for whom.
# It was originally generated by `eximconfig', part of the exim package
# distributed with Debian, but it may edited by the mail system administrator.
# This file originally generated by eximconfig at Don Jul 19 18:08:49 CEST 2001
# See exim info section for details of the things that can be configured here.
... so that mail addressed to root is sent to joachim.
