How and why are you getting local mail? If your using TB for pop/smtp
(via ISP), and all you really want is to ensure you get root's mail,
goto /etc/mail and edit aliases to something like this:
root: youremail at yourisp.com
Then, type newaliases and viola, your root's mail is sent to you at your
ISP's account, then TB will get that mail. This is only one way of
doing it, and without knowing what and why, that's the 1st thing that
came to mind.
