>>>if I want to have a alert message when a specific user is login to the system , what can I do ?<<<

you can edit the .profile of that specfic user
add entry to send email alert ,

mailx -s "YOUR SUBJECT LINE GOES HERE" <

example :

mailx -s "Hello Rosy" email@abc.com.au < subject_text_file.dat

OR

echo "Hi Rosy how are you doing??" | mailx -s "Hello Rosy" email@abc.com.au

Re: Alert for user login

I would only take a look at the output of the 'last' command, it displays all the login processes. Or it's about a single specific user, you could have a script running from cron periodically, and check with:

# last USERNAME
