Re: log in error

I assume you only care about: mail: permission denied!

You need to check the permissions of the user's mailbox.
What does "ll $MAIL" show?

Re: log in error

These messages probably come from your login profile, /etc/profile and .profile.

> Open Source Software has been installed on this system. See /opt/OpenSource/etc/copyright

Talk to your system administrator about this message. It is not an error, it is just informational, and not very useful at all.

> mail: permission denied!

Again, talk to your system administrator. The permissions for /var/mail are probably wrong.
