Hi,

I'm sure I ticked the box for my user to receive system mail when I
installed
this system (11.2 & KDE 4.3) but nothing arrives in the mailbox folder I've
created in Kmail. This is set to collect mail from /var/spool/mail/bob.

How do I get root's mail forwarded to this account?

It is delivered to ~bob/Mail/ in maildir style.

Note though that there is a bug in 11.2 (bnc#552270) where no mail at
all will be delivered until you do

cd /etc/postfix; postmap relay

Though I think that one only hits updates, not fresh installs
