It could be helpful to change your $MAIL environment variable.  Add the
line "export MAIL='/home/foo/mail/mbox'" without the quotes to your
.profile or .bashrc.  Relogin, and things might work better.  Oh, and
change foo to your username, of course.  It's surprising how many people
forget to do that :)
