Yes, on futher investigation this appears to be the problem. About two months
ago I set up a forwarding alias on 'piper' so that all email addressed to root
would be forwarded to me on 'email'. This didn't work, and I have not had time
to go and investigate what step I missed. AFAIK, I didn't miss anything.

So, it looks like I need to go back and look at my openbsd box mail config.
