I think what you want is "Movemail".
Try Edit->Account Settings->Add Account to get the new account window.
Choose "Movemail" from the list and continue the configuration with your
name, account, other settings.
When you "Get Mail" it should look in /var/spool/mail on your system
(localhost) for your mail file.
