   If normal users can send and receive mail, then your problem may be
the root mail account.
   Qmail refuses to send mail to root: you have to define which normal
user should receive mail directed to root. To do this put the username
in the file $QMAILDIR/alias/.qmail-root, where $QMAILDIR is the base
directory where you installed qmail.
   For more information see:
man qmail
man dot-qmail
