Since OP didn't specify how he reads 'ordinary' mail, we can only
speculate. There are at least two ways to solve your problem:

1) /etc/aliases with
root: blah@foo.bar.org
and forward root's mail to an external account.

2) or install some imap daemon and point icedove to it.

This is all a shot in the dark, since we don't know OP's mail
