you can use the "mail" command to read your mail box (see manpage for details) or any of a range of more user friendly MUA's from mutt up to Evolution and KMail. or just look at the files on /var/spool/mail (or wherever the mail is being stored on your system.)

I like "mutt" better if you need NO-GUI program. You might need to install it but it will be worth it.
