That would explain the issues I am experiencing. I will try that.
Problem I have is my /var/spool/mail or / partition is much small than
home. I wonder if I can do a ln -s to get mail to actually store
Anyway, let me try your suggestion. I will probably have to look at
removing my procmailrc statements regarding home.
I don't know how to do the sendmail thing either. I thought it was
in /etc/profile but that didn't seem to have any effect.
