futex(0x3b869164e8, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 1) = 1
futex(0x2388fc0, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 1) = 1
access("/var/spool/mail/jonrysh", F_OK) = 0

ENOTDIR (Not a directory)

Clearly the configuration is wrong. Evolution thinks
that /var/spool/mail/jonrysh is your actual local mailstore, whereas in
fact it's the mail spool file (and of course not a directory). My setup
is exactly the same (and has always been so) and it works, so I've no
idea why you're getting this error, but conceivably it's because it's a
fresh installation, recalling that Evo 3.x now uses maildir rather than
mbox -- though I don't see why that should affect the spool file.

You might try selecting "Standard Unix mail spool file" instead of
"Local Delivery".
