Honestly I found the Pitis solution simpler.
I tried mail in the terminal, but I am getting the message that mail is not installed, do you want to install it.
Pititis
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
Code:
mail
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:
Code:
yum install mail
or maybe you use apt-get install on your system. I don't know what your setup is.
