You have mail. But there aren't any

When I ssh into my L5, it says You have mail, but there aren’t any:

ssh purism@
Linux pureos 6.5.0-1-librem5 #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Dec  8 19:43:40 UTC 2023 aarch64

You have no mail.

purism@pureos:~$ ls -l /var/mail
total 48
-rw-rw---- 1 purism mail     0 Apr 13  2022 purism
-rw------- 1 root   mail 44816 Jan  4 17:00 root


But it actually says there that you don’t have mail. I’m not refuting that a bug might exist, only that I’m not seeing it in the text that you have copied in to the forum.

Sorry, but I swear that I read it before doing a 2nd ssh for cut&paste. Will have a closer look next time.
