comment Using a reference to a bash string variable in sed
Thanks for your time. When I type either of the above suggestions, though, I get this error message: sed: -e expression #1, char 17: unknown option to `s'. I'm trying to figure out if I typed something wrong, or if something else is wrong.

Thanks so much. It seems that there may be typos. Maybe it should be :6,8s/^#// and 6,8s/^\s*#//?

comment How can I find my local mail spool?
@AndrzejA.Filip Other than using at to send a local message when a scheduled process generates output, how can I try sending a message to myself? This is all so new to me.

comment How can I find my local mail spool?
@Shutupsquare This is interesting. When I type echo $MAIL, it returns /var/mail/myusername, where myusername is my username. But when I navigate to /var/mail/, the file myusername does not exist there.

comment How can I find my local mail spool?
Unfortunately, /var/spool/mail/ and /var/mail/ each have only two files: nobody and www-data, neither of which are my username. Thanks for your time.
