Mail file too big

Hi,

I have a user who gets the message :-

binmail: mail file /usr/spool/mail/user exceeds message maximum of 1024.

If I move the mail file user to another directory will binmail create a new mail file the next time an e-mail arrives?

Thanks
Andy

Or better null that file
#>usr/spool/mail/user

Yes. It should.
