That's how it was set before, I had left it blank, since then I added
"localhost; machinename" to it. Now when emailing my self (me@localhost)
the email gets append to /var/mail/me and is not passed to gmail any more,
which I think is the desired behavior. I'm hoping that when the system has
any messages to pass to root like rotating logs and other stuff, they will
be sent to directly to my inbox on /var/mail/me. It would be nice if the
howto in the Debian wiki could be more specific on this kind of details.
Thanks once more for your help.
