excuse me, why do you want to get mail that already is there ? on normal
unix systems mail is stored in /var/spool/mail/<yourname> when starting
up balsa, it points there already. so why do you want to recive it?

if your system uses, postgres, qmail, sendmail or whatever then the
mails will be sent through either procmail or mail to these directories
and are THERE. so what you try looks more or less in missinformation.
