Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11702
aliases lack some pseudo-users
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
The default /etc/aliases lacks aliases for some Red Hat pseudo-users, such
as adm and mail. The spool directory will silently fill with mail to these
users. I recommend adding additional aliases that redirect these users'
mail to root. Aliases to add include:
adm lp sync shutdown halt mail news gopher ftp nobody postgres
nobody's mail should probably dump into /dev/null.
Missed a few, here's some more:
httpd xfs gdm squid
