Email notifications from Fedora / CentOS

You may wish to receive email notifications from your server for cron updates / scripts and such.

Within the Redhat environment covering Fedora / CentOS / Scientific Linux & RHEL the following method is advised:

(via root #) echo "root: your@emailaddress.com" >> /etc/aliases; newaliases;

As a user you can issue the following command to receive email notifications:

(via user $) echo "your@emailaddress.com" > .forward; chmod 644 .forward;

This will ensure that mails to root@localhost/user@localhost are redirected to your email address, this will assist with the security and management of your server.
