It is important to check emails regularly, as hacker activity, problems in your system can be highlighted. What would you have done if you had noticed a root login from the other side of the world one month ago?
I know, but I simply cannot give it higher priority in life than it now has. That may be irresponsible, but putting it above other matters would be even more irresponsible.
As for said (theoretical) root login from one month ago, I would format and reinstall. As I am on Fedora Core, which has a lifespan of half a year, I intend on doing this regularly. Backups, backups, backups!
