Root can't receive email; /var/mail/root

Hey Everyone,

I'm running postfix here locally on 10.0.0, and the root accnt can't receive email. First, I know that you shouldn't send email from root, but it should HAVE THE CAPACITY to do so, agree?

/var/spool/mail/root does NOT exist. Mail to root isn't bounced, it just doesn't go to the proper place.

root@adama.am root exists in /etc/postfix/virtual

I have restarted postfix numerous times, but nothing seems to go. Is there something in postfix that may be preventing me from using root as email?

Thanks,

Adam

Not 100% sure, but I'd check

/var/root/.forward

It forwards everything to dev/null.
