How to Access Mail on UNIX Server

I am running SCO Openserver 5 and would like to access the mail utility. Using scoadmin there is a option for mail, but when selected there is only SendMail Configuration.

Sometime in the long ago I was able to access the mail utility and send, read, etc. mail.  What I want to do now specifically is access the mail that accumulates for root and review, then delete it.  There was in interface somewhere.  Is it something other than scoadmin?

run the "mail" or "mailx' commandline (or elm if you have it install). If you are
using GUI login (have a look at the mail icon, see:

man mail
man mailx
man elm

# mail or # mailx is not what I am looking for.  I am looking for a utility that would be accessable from something like scoadmin.  The GUI is not what I am looking for either.

scoadmin is the SCO adminstrator's tools, there is no mail client built in, you can
use it to configure the mail server (sendmail or mmdf) but not for reading email !

I woke up this morning having dreamed of tapeing seashells together and placing them in a mailbox.  The answer to my question is 'scosh'.
