Okay, that's .... unusual.  I don't think I've ever seen anyone put a
Maildir and a nmh folder in the same location.  I do not think that's
a good idea; I am not sure what would happen there.

It does not look like you told inc anywhere that the maildrop was in
the "Mail" directory?  That's setting the location for nmh folders.
You can set this with either the -file switch, the MAILDROP environment
variable, or the MailDrop profile entry.  I suspect inc is trying to
read /var/mail/$USER for new mail.
