Redirecting root's mail



On most systems there are some cronjobs that run as root. Those jobs sent their output to root's mail file/folder. Here's an easy way to redirect those messages, so that regular user can read them. Most desktop users will find this useful.



Edit as root /etc/aliases file and append the following line:



root:           regularuser 



Then run:



sudo newaliases 



You should have root privileges to execute those commands. Now regularuser will receive all root's mail.
