I've been logging into root using sudo ("sudo su"), which I installed having grown accustomed to using it under Ubuntu.
Anyway, I modified the alias as you suggested and it now works. That still leaves the messages in /var/mail/root (not important, just wondering how to fix it).
Also, is there a way of flushing the outgoing mail queue? There is a bunch of stuff sitting there from some tests with postfix.
Thanks for your assistance.
