22<para>The <filename>/etc/aliases</filename> file that was just created,
23the <filename>main.cf</filename> and the <filename>master.cf</filename>
24must be personalized for your system. The <filename>aliases</filename> file
25needs your non-root login identity so mail addressed to root can be forwarded
26to you at the user level. The <filename>main.cf</filename> file needs your
27fully qualified hostname. All of these edits can be done with sed commands
28entered into the console with appropriate substitutions of your non-root
29login name for <replaceable>[user]</replaceable> and your fully qualified
30hostname for <replaceable>[localhost.localdomain]</replaceable>. You will
31find the <filename>main.cf</filename> file
32is self documenting, so load it into your editor to make the changes you need
33for your situation.</para>
