Tom, Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. My aliases file was setup properly, but I have discovered that it wasn't compiled (I hadn't run "makealiases" for courier-mta). When I tried to send mail to root ("#mail root"), it failed. However, after running makealiases I was able to send mail to root. I will know tomorrow am whether this means that periodic will run successfully. Since the maillog showed successful transmission of other messages, I automatically assumed that the problem was not with mail configuration... Thanks for the help. Abid Thomas T. Veldhouse wrote:

There were no changes made of the system, except that part of the filesystem was exported as an NFS share. These shares are setup on another FreeBSD machine for automount. I have checked my /etc and /var/logs and cannot find any reason for the mails to have stopped. Any help and guidance will be greatly appreciated. Here are some of the relevant files: Have you inadvertently aliased the root user to another user? Or perhaps you deleted an alias and should be looking in the "root" mailbox? I have virtual mail setup on my systems and I lost periodic emails as well until I configured postfix correctly to consider my local machine's hostname as an acceptable recipient. I now alias root to the virtual user I want to receive these emails.
