Subject:   Couldn't get the mail app to receive local Unix mail

I tried the steps outlined in this tutorial, and everything worked perfectly save for the mail application being able to receive local unix mail.


I can send mail to root and it is redirected to my user account, but for some reason the GUI mail app doesn't pick it up.


One interesting thing I tried was editing the GUI mail app's "Local" account. When I try to save the changes I get an error message saying:
The account path /Users/mknight/Library/Mail/UNIX:@ is not writable.


Any advice for a long time Mac user but Unix newbie?
