thunderbird local mail stuck
ubuntu at pusspaws.net

I have thunderbird setup on my wifes machine with a 'movemail account' so I
can read my 'root' mail which is automatically directed to user 'vanda'
server type : Unix Movemail
server name : localhost.localdomain
username : vanda
local directory : /var/mail
With the boxes checked for reading new mail on startup and every 10 mins
I never get mail :( even when i know there is mail waiting. I can start
thunderbird - zip, I can ctrl-shift-t to check my accounts - zip.
However if I manually right click the account and 'get messages for account'
it reads the system emails in perfectly.
This is not ideal - does anyone else have this problem ? or an idea how to
solve it ?
