Still not working :? Hypothesis 1 did not work and here is my sequence of commands and output for hypothesis 2

[root@p21-elrond ~]# service iptables stop
iptables: Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
iptables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
iptables: Unloading modules: [ OK ]
[root@p21-elrond ~]# su cis192
[cis192@p21-elrond root]$ mail
No mail for cis192
[cis192@p21-elrond root]$ fetchmail
fetchmail: Server certificate verification error: self signed certificate
fetchmail: This means that the root signing certificate (issued for /OU=IMAP server/CN=imap.example.com/emailAddress=postmaster@example.com) is not in the trusted CA certificate locations, or that c_rehash needs to be run on the certificate directory. For details, please see the documentation of --sslcertpath and --sslcertfile in the manual page.
fetchmail: Warning: the connection is insecure, continuing anyways. (Better use --sslcertck!)

su - cis192

Here's is the effect on the shell environment:

[root@p34-elrond ~]# su - cis192
[cis192@p34-elrond ~]$ set | grep mail
MAIL=/var/spool/mail/cis192

[root@p34-elrond ~]# su cis192
[cis192@p34-elrond root]$ set | grep mail
MAIL=/var/spool/mail/root

The mail command is opening the wrong in-tray otherwise.

Thanks Rich for 1) figuring this out :shock: and 2) posting the solution! I came here to post what you figured out for completeness to the issue in case anyone else ever has this issue. Gracias for beating me to it. It seems it is always the small stuff that takes the most time to figure out :roll:
