Default Getting Roots Mail

Hi Guys.

Thought I would share this with you, incase it helps any one else.
Getting Roots Mail on Postfix.
Vi /etc/aliases
goto the bottom of the file find the
#root: marc

change it to :
root: realsystem user

for example
root: web6_keith

Note you will need to redirect the mail to a real system account.

save and quite.
postalias aliases
postfix reload

test by sending a mail to root.

If your /etc/alaises is in a different location check your postfix main.cf file.

Hope that helps.
Keith.

One general hint, never make an alias for the admispconfig user. The admispconfig user account is needed for the mail statistics and you will break ispconfig stats if you make an alias for admispconfig.

Sorry to bring this 'old' topic up, but is 'fraginhell' way of doing this a good or bad way?

I would like to receive the 'system mail' as a normal email in my *cough* *cough* Outlook Express box..

The way I'm now reading it now is with Webmin > Servers > Read User Mail > Root

The solution is fine for redirecting the root emails.
