anyone know how to check mail using bash.

i tried using MAIL and MAILPATH but they don't seem to work.

i wanted to use something like this:

# /bin/mail -E
# switch ( $status )
# case 0:
# echo "there's new mail."
# breaksw;
# case 2:
# echo "no new mail."
# breaksw;
# endsw

i used this with a c shell

any suggestions?
