Hi, Jordi

To solve the problems I'll need some more infomation about your system.
What I need to know is:

   1. Are the environment variables MAIL and FOLDER set? If they
are, which are their values.

   2. Which are the permissions of your mailspool directory.

   3. If -f argument to mail points to an existing mailbox in
your homedir, e.g.: mail -f~/mbox, is it able to
read the mailbox? To test this you may copy your system mailbox over
to your homedir and try to open it there.

Thank you.
