Just logged in as root to install my nVidia drivers, and noticed root had mail.
is there a way to make another user receive roots mail? I know some distros set this up as part of the installation, but I'm using Fedora 3 and am unsure how to do this..

TIA
Monky

You create an alias in /etc/aliases

This will be full of them - just add one to the bottom like...
root: yourusername

Then you will need to run newaliases to get it used by the mail agent. Maybe need to restart mail agent too - don't know.
