The Hoffman2 Cluster has to be able to handle email because batch jobs normally send email to you to let you know when they start up or complete. These notices are sent to your login_id@mail on the Hoffman2 Cluster and then forwarded to your email address of record. If you do not keep your email address up to date, these messages will go astray.
Please do not use the Hoffman2 Cluster as the location where you normally send and receive email. Bruin OnLine Webmail provides email services to the campus and many UCLA departments also provide email services to departmental users.
