Email for UUCP

All email messages that are generated by the UUCP programs and scripts are sent to the user ID uucp. If you do not log in frequently as that user, you might not realize that mail is accumulating and consuming disk space. To solve this problem, create an alias in /etc/mail/aliases and redirect that email either to root or to yourself and others who are responsible for maintaining UUCP. Remember to run the newaliases command after modifying the aliases file.
