Main point is that it works with rkhunter, one of the programs that
Stakanov wanted to receive mail from. Maybe sendmail doesn't work with
42.3 out of the box.

But Leap uses postfix, not sendmail.

Mine defaulted to exim.

then something is really off-base. openSUSE,SUSE,SuSE have all for my
elderly memory defaulted to postfix.

or possibly you made a selection you fail to remember.

Possibly I deselected postfix in 42.2, anyway exim works fine.

or not. you said you were/are not able to receive root mail. and postfix
w/o any non-default configuration properly delivers root mail.

No my root mail gets sent to my user. I was just trying to help Stakanov. I'm not able to send mail as user to root because exim specifically forbids it unless I override. I tested with rkhunter and the mail arrives. Anyway I now understand system mail and could setup mail on the console. If I'm ever without x I think I might be able to ask for help on this list or boot into a rescue dvd which is most probably easier.
