believe that (k)ubuntu DOESN'T install mail by default. And the reason, I
looked in /var/mail (/var/spool/mail is just a link to ../mail) it was
empty! There are messages from cron in the "system log" thingie, that you
can see from ksystemlog. That is actually /var/log/syslog, which, of
course, you can view with Konqueror or the Gnome equivalent.
