Are any emails going out?  Perhaps sendmail died? If it were me, I
would start by checking the mail queue (# mailq), the mail log
(/var/adm/maillog), and the sendmail mail transport agent (# service
sendmail status). I use a default setup which requires sendmail to be
running for delivery of mail to root at locahost.
