I get this at work. When I'm logged into a Unix box through
ReflectionX and mail arrives I get the "You've got mail"
message. If run "mail", it says "No Mail".
I think the reason for this is that the mail is shoved into a
POP box as soon as it gets to my account. (I collect it from
there through Netscape/Pegasus/whatever on my NT
machine. I haven't tried collecting it from Netscape under
Unix - I'm not a masochist!)
