It's very easy in kmail. Just create a new account, choose "local inbox,"
point it to the account (in /var/mail/ ) that you want to monitor.
Thanks for the quick reply
It was indeed very easy to setup, but i'm getting an error:
Transmission failed: Could not lock /var/mail/myusername
of course i'm trying to read my own mail.
ls -lah /var/mail/
drwxrwsr-x 2 root mail 4.0K 2008-11-23 21:31 .
drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4.0K 2008-07-26 12:05 ..
-rw-rw---- 1 myusername mail 2.2M 2008-11-23 21:31 myusername
in Kmail account configuration, choose "Privileged Mutt Dotlock" (or
whatever it reads like), it works like a charm for me, and I have Mutt
and Kmail configured to retrieve the system mail (Kmail is friendly,
Mutt is much much better over ssh...).
