I tried mail in the terminal, but I am getting the message that mail is not installed, do you want to install it.
The alias to existing mail id is working fine, but how can I pull the existing mails in root to the aliased ID.
Just install it. It's a good program to have installed because you can check root's mail simply by typing
That seems simpler than editing config files to me. That way, it also keeps root's email separate from your other email accounts.
To install it type:
or maybe you use apt-get install on your system. I don't know what your setup is.
