While I can send and receive e-mails with Amazon as root, I can't seem to do the same on my local system. Both are
xenial 16.04, so shouldn't be that different.
On Amazon, as root, I can launch
alpine to ready system messages. Even when I gain a root shell on my local system, and change the working directory,
alpine uses the
.pinerc config file from
/home/thufir/.pinerc for reasons beyond me.
How can I configure my local computer to read system e-mails with
alpine instead of of the
mailutils which uses
postfix; both remote (Amazon) and local systems have different FQDN's registered through www.no-ip.com free service.
