This may or may not be a dumb question, but I would like to install logcheck on my local machine,

format, and how is it configured to accept connections locally only?

Hi, as pointed by another poster you don't need anything else than a
mua configured to store the system mail locally only (exim, postfix ...
reconfigure with "dpkg-reconfigure" if necessary). IIRC the
"dpkg-reconfigure" step alows you to choose maildir format too. Use the
"other" type when creating the new Icedove account, then use "movemail"
profile. It should work right away after exiting the account creation
wizard. I use this setup when I don't want to bother with Mutt ;-).
