[opensuse] How to get system mail delivered to user?
Once upon a time, in the days of oS 12.1 and earlier, I used to get
system mail delivered to me. This seems to have stopped since moving to
12.2, in spite of the fact that my user has the 'Receive System Mail'
option checked in YaST > Security and Users > User and Group Management.
