Thunderbird configuration with /var/spool/mail


Hi,

Recently I tried to work with mozilla thunderbird to read my email in MDK10.1 and I really want to figure it out. Normally I use kmail to do this ... but for ones I tried something different.
Okay the issue about default browser and mailto stuff is already solved using the scritps you find everywhere on the internet, but what I didn't find is how I am able to read my local mailbox /var/spool/mail/user.

How do I do this? Does anybody has an idea, and is it still possible to read it afterwards in an other mailprogram like kmail?

thanks

klaas
