Question email users isssue


my email server is set up in a different machine which runs lineox enterprise 3.0. It exports /var/spool/mail to the sun server running solaris 9 and hence, all workstations nd users can access their mail.

but the problem is some users cannot open their mail at all. the error "mailer cannot open" appears. But if as root, i open their mail box by opening it through /var/mail/ then they can open their mail box for some amount of time( not fixed, hours, days), but again after sometime, they cannot open the mailer unlike some users who can use it no problem. Currently, the ones who cannot use the mailer r receiveing their mail through pine.

How do i go about fixing the problems? What settings do i look for especially in lineox box and are there any commands to write.

please help

reporter-mailx - Sends contents of a problem directory via email.
reporter-mailx [-v] -d DIR [-c CONFFILE]

Properties of email messages can be specified in a configuration file, and via environment variables. Configuration file Configuration file contains entries in a format "Option = Value". The options are: Subject The subject of the email message. EmailFrom The sender of the email message. EmailTo The recipient of the email message. SendBinaryData Use yes/true/on/1 to attach all binary files from the problem directory to the email. This can cause the emails to be very large. Integration with ABRT events reporter-mailx can be used as a reporter, to allow users report problems via email when they decide to do it. This usage is pre-configured in /etc/libreport/events.d/mailx_event.conf: EVENT=report_Mailx reporter-mailx It can also be used to notify administrator automatically when a problem happens. When this is desired, modify the event configuration file to run the tool on the post-create event: EVENT=post-create reporter-mailx
