I am trying KBiff with GKrellM, instead of Coolmail, so I am close to a solution to my problem described in a separate topic in these forums.
When I configured SuSE Linux 8.2 Professional initially, I set it to receive messages from the 'root' account. I am trying to accomplish that goal with KBiff and KGrellM, but I would very much appreciate advice from people who have set up an account to read messages from the 'root' account. (I have 26 "new" messages, all of which are from the 'root' account.)
KBiff is displaying two errors, one right after the other, repeatedly. The first message is: "Error opening /var/spool/mail/ddickerson. Either this is not a valid maildir or you don't have sufficient access permissions." After I click OK, I get the message, "Cannot open folder /var/spool/mail/ddickerson."
The "Meta Info" for this folder (file?) is as follows:
ddickerson - users
> From: firstname.lastname@example.org
> To: email@example.com

As you can see, the system is configured for the 'root' account to send messages to itself, not to me ('firstname.lastname@example.org'). I have done extensive searching on the Web and I have no idea how to resolve this problem.
In addition, I fear that the file or folder, 'ddickerson', is corrupted or in the wrong format. I am repeatedly getting the errors from KBiff.
Does anyone have any suggestions at all? I would be extremely grateful and I thank you very much, in advance!
P.S. -- I am running KMail under KDE 3.1.1.
