   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.
