I have just managed to work round all the problems to get my RMAIL
file in mbox format.  But now I cannot read new mail

(setq rmail-primary-inbox-list 
  '("/var/spool/mail/jpff" "/home/jpff/mbox" "/mnt/snout/home/jpff/mbox"))

cardew:/tmp> ls -l "/var/spool/mail/jpff" "/home/jpff/mbox" 
"/mnt/snout/home/jpff/mbox"
ls: cannot access /home/jpff/mbox: No such file or directory
-rw------- 1 jpff mail  1645024 2009-02-02 15:39 /mnt/snout/home/jpff/mbox
-rw------- 1 jpff users       0 2009-02-02 15:46 /var/spool/mail/jpff

And it says 
(No new mail has arrived)
0 new messages read

But there are 219 messages in /mnt/snout/home/jpff/mbox which is my
main mailbox

The same happens with -q at startup
