Description kenneth_porter 2000-05-26 23:34:53 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.
