Hello.

1. When a new message arrives to each user's mailbox, the following text is created:
---------
From MAILER-DAEMON Wed Apr 5 20:37:57 2000
Date: 05 Apr 2000 20:37:57 -0500
From: Mail System Internal Data <MAILER-DAEMON@dsl-035-f.resnet.purdue.edu>
Subject: DON'T DELETE THIS MESSAGE -- FOLDER INTERNAL DATA
Message-ID: <954985077@dsl-035-f.resnet.purdue.edu>
X-IMAP: 0954985075 0000000001
Status: RO

This text is part of the internal format of your mail folder, and is not
a real message. It is created automatically by the mail system software.
If deleted, important folder data will be lost, and it will be re-created
with the data reset to initial values.
-------------

I wouldn't mind this, but everytime someone first logs in or opens a shell, they set a message that they have mail (I assume because the size of their inbox is > 0). How can I get rid of that "INTERNAL DATA" message.

2. I tried to build KDE from the sources. The program "kcheckpass" which verfies passwords works. The screen savers that require a password to disable always give an authentication error, and KDM just has a runtime seg fault for no reason that I know of. Perhaps this is all related to the authentication mechanism, so how does the FreeBSD's default password authentication system work and how does this differ from other UNIX flavors?

Thanks a lot!!!
