Debian/Ubuntu text login: You have new Mail! what to do?!

[Category: Debian] Share: Bookmark and Share


Usually you get messages from the system that are stored in /var/mail. Open a terminal session and type:

cd /var/mail

Then type:

ls -l

to see a list of files in that directory. Note the name of the most recent file and type cat "filename" to read it.

cat file

Usually, the messages aren't of earth-shattering import, but it's nice to know they're there and that you get a notice every time there are new ones.
