elm

I am using elm to recieve messages that fbackup past/failed, etc. Now when I type elm from the cammond prompt the system tells me that

"Another elm is already reading this mail!".
If this is in error then you'll need to remove /tmp/mbox.root.

So I remove it, type in elm again, it rebuilds mbox.root, then it fills up all the temp space, and I'm back at square one. Any ideas?

Re: elm

Hi Jason,

see if ps -ef shows an old elm process sitting somewhere.
If so go and kill all elm processes and start from scratch.

Re: elm

I already looked for elm processes. There's not any running. I also tried to null out the mbox.root file with "cat .dev.null > mbox.root". It nulls it out, but when I type elm is still says that "elm is already reading this mail".
