    I thought the answer was mail. So I tried it on a konsole. Would you
    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.

    It's not even available for installation via Adept. I just searched for
    packages called mail and it isn't there.

    Would mutt work?

    Yes, much better too. But it is not what I believe the OP asked for. Mutt
    will read mail in the spool, but it has to get there first which is what I
    thought the OP was asking...?
