Nice One I was thinking I was going mad at home this works .
But $ less /var/spool/mail/chuck produced no output.

I use scan+ to check and go thru users email folder . i.e

cd /home/User/Mail/Inbox <Folder in Question> say spam Folder

> scan +Lottery > show 1 example below:

chuck at sevenofnine:~/pythonScript> cd /home/chuck/Mail
chuck at sevenofnine:~/Mail> ls
