mutt on Debian Sarge

Just created a new Debian Sarge box. I'm having a problem where I go into mutt and it says:
/var/mail/joebloggs: No such file or directory (errno = 2)
There is no mailbox - can someone show me how to create one. i thought it was just a text file, but maybe not.

Thanks in advance.

I take it you haven't used Mutt before. It does require a bit of setup. There is a site useful for helping with generating the setup file: Muttrc builder.
