After setting things up as described in your articles, all seems to work fine and mail to root is being directed to the right place, etc.

However, I noticed that one of the test mail messages I sent to root seems to have been *also* written as a file called "mbox" in my home directory. Just curious ...and of course, slightly worried that automated mail resulting from crontab et al will continue writing to disk there too, drowning me 4K at a time over the next 10 years....

Great article - can't wait for part 3 and more!
