You have new mail
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 21, 2009
I administer a server for a small business. I usually access it through Webmin without a problem. Today I logged in through Putty to restart Webmin and received a message saying "You have new mail". The server is only a file server and not a mail server. How do I read this mail.
Sorry for asking what is most likely a very obvious question.

This morning I logged into my backend via putty, and noticed a message at the very end f the login output..."You have new mail".
I installed mailx, and typed "mail" to see the messages, and I have 6 messages that started being delivered Jan18 and every 7 days there after. The message is.....

Safely get rid of “You have new mail in /var/mail” on a Mac?

I was messing around with sendmail in Rails a year ago and have had this message popping up in the terminal after every command ever since:
You have new mail in /var/mail/Lance
How do I properly get rid of that so the message goes away? I ever use any of that functionality and don't have mail on my computer. There's one file in /var/mail called lance, and it's huge. Can I just remove it?

Whenever I log in on a virtual console, it says "You have new mail.". However, I don't have any programs relating to email installed (besides Thunderbird). This system came with exim4 and mailx installed. I uninstalled them a while ago. Is there any way to remove the notice?
So you've installed Ubuntu, you're new to linux and you HATE BROWN... READ ME FIRST!

Don't go crazy. Take a deep breath, sit back, relax & grab a coffee. While the developers have a perfectly logical explanation for the default brown theme (and if you read it, it makes perfect sense!), it seems there are a great plenty of people who, plain and simple, HATE brown. I'm not a fan of it myself, so here's a one-stop-shop on how to get rid of it entirely:
Ubuntu offers several default themes, available under System > Preferences > Theme. You'll be presented with a list of default themes. Pick the one you like.
Same with the login screen theme. Go to System > Administration > Login Window. Enter your password, then go to the Local tab. You can change the initial background color here, too.
Don't see anything that strikes you in these lists? Notice how there aren't many pre-installed wallpaper options? No biggie, the internet offers practically unlimited options.
For various themes, http://www.GNOME-look.org is pretty much a one-stop shop. Literal

If you boot into ubuntu without a graphical login you always get "you got new mail". On the bottom.

Or did someone just tried to be funny?
