    Question send errors to user instead of root

    Hi all,

    I've looked into /var/log/syslog and seen that some errors occured. As far as I know, errors go to root mailbox. How do I change settings in order to send errors into user mailbox instead of root ?

    Errors are not automatically mailed anywhere; they are simply logged.

    You can install logwatch which will scan the logs and send you an email.
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.
