And which "dear woman" is this? And, if she is really
dear, you wouldn't dare to kill her!!! :-D
Now, if you're actually talking about the shell, check
your shell resource files for the 'set mail' line.
On mine, it is:
set mail = (/var/mail/$USER)
Which I believe defaults to checking the mail every 5 minutes.
Change that to:
set mail = (86400 /var/mail/$USER)
and the old lady will only nudge you once
each morning ;-) Probably something a little smaller
would be best.
