Another way is to edit /etc/mail/aliases and forward mail
to root to your preferred account, e. g.

        root: myuser

Note that "recompiling" sendmail's files is neccessary, and
sendmail needs to be restarted. It is explained at the top
of Makefile in the /etc/mail directory. It's quite easy. :-)
