 I am having the same problem.  I am not sure if it is a question of my
default mail recipient in Sol7 or if I am placing the wrong command alias in
the sudoers file.  I am still working on this but I am gettingmail in Solris
to root at .  I want to over ride this to default to my sys email account.  If
I figure this out Will let you know...
