and files undelivered

Dear Garrick and other Torque experts,
I manged to get jobs running on my network - as you rightly said it
was not a Torque problem - it was something to do with my
.bash_profile file. I reproduce a copy of my modified .bash_profile
file below for any other novice who may be having the same problem.
Unfortunately I still cannot get the .OU and .ER messages to go to the
right place. Furthermore - I don't know where to find the error
messages which ought to be e-mailed to me. Typing "mail" as either
root or non-root user does not show any messages generated by Torque.
At what point in the TORQUE set up should I have configured the mail?
As always many thanks for any help
# .bash_profile called at start of login shell
# Users may add their own commands here
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]
## . /users/PROTOUSER/common_profile
bind '"\eOP": dynamic-complete-history'
DISPLAY=$1:0.0; export DISPLAY
echo DISPLAY set to $DISPLAY
echo "You are now running on $HOSTNAME in a BASH environment."
