Well it ended up pretty easy to do,
add a folder, I called mine 'system'
local account>mutt docklock priverlage
and select folder 'system' for the mail to drop into
ctrl - L ... and kmail grabs all system mail for dave
To get system mail for root
sudo crontab -u root -e
and add the following
Now the 'system' folder gets system mail for dave & root.
Hope this helps
