To quote from
finger's man page
Mail status is shown as
No Mail.'' if there is no mail at all,Mail last read DDD MMM ## HH:MM YYYY (TZ)'' if the person has looked at their mailbox since new mail arriving, or
New mail received ...'',Unread since ...'' if they have new mail.
I'd rather it didn't do that. In fact I'd like finger to only display
no mail when asked.
Is there a way to ensure this behaviour? I have no admin rights to the machine or the network (and Google points me to nail-biting remedies for some reason). Emptying the mail folder is one solution but I'm looking for something more elegant, if possible.
fingerdin this day and age. Why give out the info that
fingerdgives out? Seems like a security risk to me.
