I'm talking about the file /var/spool/mail/~username
I know I can use fetchmail, and a couple of other scripts and programs, to collect all my email into that file, and then I want to be able to access it from a single pop3 server running on my machine.
Also, my computer seems to deliver important system info, like attempted ssh connections, and so forth, as emails to /var/spool/mail/root. But that's only occasional stuff that I can easily read using mutt, so I'm not worried about accessing that mail spool, although it might be nice to be able to get those through a pop server as well.
