Dear Cander ;
I have configured the off line mail server .In this I retrive the mails
through fetchmail & filtered it by procmail . When a perticular mails come
without specified proper user(which is mentioned in procmail) this mail by
defaults goes to the /var/spool/mail/root file.
BUT if I try to see these mail through pine I could not opened it & got
error message "/var/spool/mail/root not in valid mail box format"
How can I solve this problems .
