Description iusty 1999-07-27 12:11:40 UTC
When I run finger on the current host, like 'finger iusty', it says
"No mail". A 'strace finger iusty' shows that it stats /var/mail/iusty, which
under RedHat 6.0 stock install, doesn't exits. Currently I have linke
/var/spool/mail to /var/mail, but maybe it causes security problems
