comment Canonical bash environment variable representing a user's email address
And why not as an argument to the script? There is no best way (see edit to my answer), there is only sensible for your intents and purposes.

comment Canonical bash environment variable representing a user's email address
No it's not. I'm just asking you, because its nice additional information on the topic, as the OP states its viable to have the users specify their contact email address.

IMO "the best" way does not involve the users specifying it ...

comment Why does a grep reboot the machine?
How does it reboot? Is it a clean init 6 or does the screen just go black and the machine reboots?

comment Canonical bash environment variable representing a user's email address
Well, how do you correlate users and email addresses? Also, you need to elaborate on "local" and "remote" email-addresses, because that's not a very wide spread concept either. What do you mean by those? How are remote addresses different from the local ones?

comment Print the system clipboard content in bash
To simplify things ... this is what I do: alias pbcopy='xsel --clipboard --input'; alias pbpaste='xsel --clipboard --output' I chose the names to match the MacOS commands.

comment Dual seat in Linux with 3d acceleration and one video card
Do you have evidence, that any "normal" multi seat setup does not have 3d acceleration for both seats?

comment simple script for monitoring a mailserver
I think it's cleaner to send a single . to terminate the SMTP session, rather than EOF after the HELO.

comment Running NFS server as ver 3
AFAIK the client alone determines/requests which version is used. I guess your setting will only make the nfs-server deny/ignore v4 requests, but not change the behaviour of the system service in any other way.
