no rootmail

Should I raise a bug?

No. There is no bug, but a problem.

Send a mail to root with the 'mail' app, then see what the mail log says
about it.

I just tried it in this partition (42.3) freshly installed and it works.

In my case, it is redirected to user "cer", because I ticked the box during
initial install. I have not configured mail at all, it works out of the
box.
Neither have I configured network, just plain dhcp.
the mail accounts of the two users do not receive the rootmail. But also root
does not receive rootmail.
entropia@roadrunner:~> mail -r root root
Subject: test to root
test
.
EOT

I do not receive an error. But the mail is not there....

I just tried to send mail from root to root and it failed, I have my user set up to receive root mail from first installation.
Note if logged in as root I enter mail, and there's no mail, it's reply is no mail for user davepl. I tried root root and no mail, root davepl, the mail arrives, davepl root I get a non delivery notification. Therefore the root account doesn't exist for receiving mail on my Leap:42.3 system. I suspect this is as a result of the setting for user to receive root mail.

Hope this helps your dilemma.
