I am having trouble with mail messages being left undelivered in
/var/spool/smail/input. I use fetchmail to get my mail and run
Slackware. Why does this happen? I used to login all the time
as root and occasionly messages would be left undelivered in
smail input directory. Now having switched over to being a
regular user my mail is never delivered. I have read both man
pages for smail and the mail how-to without any help. I have
struggled with this problem for months.
If you have any suggestions please post and CC it to me as
well (watch the spam fooler), as c.m.s has a quick turn over
I may not see it.
Thank you, Matthew

is nothing wrong with having something that works well when used by the
