$ubuntu:> cat /var/log/mail.err
Sep 12 15:11:55 localhost procmail[15694]: Couldn't rename bogus
"/var/mail/user" into "/var/mail/BOGUS.user.C3SD"

$ubuntu:> ll /var/mail
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root mail   23 2006-09-08 11:24 user ->

Any idea what could be the reason? I, apparently, continue to receive emails and have
them sorte. Just to be on the safe side and remove the error message.
Waht should I do?
