If you're using the default setup, incoming mail is in
/var/spool/mail/$USER ($USER - being the user name). Exim has it's
own outgoing spool directory. You can save mail anywhere under
$HOME, though the default for many programs is $HOME/Mail. Beware
that different mail clients use different formats for storing mail.
