On a default system, you probably want to edit /etc/aliases an make root mail get redirected to you ... In order to do so, open your /etc/aliases file, look for the line that reads: # Pretty much everything else in this file points to "root", so # you would do well in either reading root's mailbox or forwarding # root's email from here. root: and edit it so it looks like this: # Pretty much everything else in this file points to "root", so # you would do well in either reading root's mailbox or forwarding # root's email from here. root: yourusername save the changes and run the following command as root: newaliases From then on, all mail directed to "root" (like those crontab send) will be forwarded to you .. so all you need to do is set up your mail client to pick up it's mail from /var/mail/yourusername and there you go :) Hope that helps.
