Probably. I think the default timeout is something like 7 days; if a
message cannot be delivered after that time, it gets bounced; and if the
bounce message cannot be delivered, it is lost.
Not that there are any important messages sent to root in Ubuntu. I see
only cron errors about minor things like broken symlinks to manual
pages, and sudo's messages about me mistyping my password.
Look! Before our very eyes, the future is becoming the past.
