Default Securing Debian Manual: 4.12.2 Configuring where alerts are sent

Hello.

"There are other role accounts and aliases on your system. On a small
system, it's probably simplest to make sure that all such aliases
point to the root account, and that mail to root is forwarded to the
system administrator's personal mailbox."
How to enable this mailbox thing? Is it secure?

Cheers

1. man aliases

2. Mail is inherently not secure (the postcard analogy has been
mentioned already).

Kind regards,
