I suspect you defined your ISP's MTA as SMART_HUB and Postfix is
misconfigured and does not know local domains.

Certainly not. Reread the documentation and your configuration files,
especially the parts you did change.

Of course! (Exim was up till now never part of any Redhat release, nor
Fedora Core, will be first shipped with FC2)

Best way to read root's mail is to define an alias entry which redirects
the mail to an unprivileged user account. This way you can get and read
it using any mail client. Else you are bound to a root console, xterm or
SSH connection.
