In most cases, system mail will be sent to root. If you edit the file /etc/mail/aliases, you can redirect any mail sent to root to your local user account (/var/mail/<yourname>) and then use TB to retrieve it from there (just as it would have been recieved by fetchmail). Don't forget to "make aliases" and restart the sendmail subsystem, see /etc/mail/Makefile for details. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
