I've just installed apticron to get mails as available update notifications. Now I was wondering if there was a way to set up mutt to manage my mails from /var/spool/mail/daedalus?

I'm on Debian Jessie, if that is relevant.


You can set up the mailbox(es) to use in mutt via ~/.muttrc.

It would be something like this (see the manpage for muttrc for the full details):

set folder=/var/spool/mail
set mbox=+daedalus
