[xubuntu-users] New to Xubuntu: local loopback mailx no mail for root???

my linuxbox doesn't have a qualified domain name. I do my REAL Email
via ISP provided smtp & pop3 servers But I installed mailx and then
configured postfix for local mail only...

It works like I hoped mailx is for local user to local user
communications only... But it is my intention to be able to have
certain scripts send local mail via mailx to root. (And yes I know
ubuntu discourages root accounts but I've been using them for admin
tasks too long to give them up so my Xubuntu has a root account...)

But for some reason or other mail for root doesn't get there...

Is this some ubuntu thing or is there some postfix setting I need to

Note: If it matters, Xubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) was installed from the
alternate install CD on a Gateway laptop (MT6451 Notebook PC) It
has AMD Turion 64x2 processors and a 120 gig HD...
