I have /usr/spool/mail/root locked, and i cant check the output of my
security

Im using SCO Openserver  Release 5.
Thanks in advantage.

look for a pop file or a .lock file in the /usr/spool/mail directory.
Also check /tmp for any clues...

Ola !

Please try by checking for the presence of a .root file in the
/usr/spool/mail directory (if I remember correctly) and for a
file (under /tmp - sorry I cannot remember the name) which
deals directly with the popper daemon (if this is your case).

Hope this helps !

Best,
Roberto

1. More mail file locking questions (lockf, NFS, /var/spool/mail/*.lock)

        Here's a problem I've run into:

        The problem I've seen relates to building mh-6.8 for SVR4
        (and correspondingly LOCKF). Now, it appears that while
        INC believes the mail file (NFS mounted) should be
        locked, it isn't (or it is lockf'ed and someone else
        [/bin/mail?] isn't honoring the lock; it says something
        like "New mail has arrived.."). It appears that /bin/mail
        (on 4.1.x and Solaris 2.x) uses lock files
        (/var/spool/mail/*.lock).  

        My question is, should mh ({l}emacs, popper,imap,...)
        use this style (and abandon lockf), or is there some
        other appropriate solution to this problem?

        Thanks,
