My system mail is getting sent to $HOME/Mail/mbox instead of to

How do I set that?


Check /etc/aliases and/or man 5 aliases

Thanks for the tip, but that wasn't it.

I found that the problem was my .procmailrc file.  I didn't realize that
got called for each incoming message.  I thought maybe it had to be
called from fetchmail (which I had disabled), but I was wrong about
that.  So anyway, problem solved.

Glad you solved it.  I have not used procmail for so long I forgot about it.
