Does it work with /var/spool/mail/$USER ?

Because I have set that file as an mbox, and is a mess. New mails are not read, 
kmail does not delete the emails, configured to compact every 5 msgs, and, when 
I try to read the file with other tools, the emails are duplicated.

I tried to set $HOME/mbox also and use mailtutils to copy messages from 
/var/spool to  $HOME/mbox but the result is the same.
