You star, that's the one.
I just installed the debian package and was still mystified at the same problem 
when I saw your reply.

I think creating it would be nice but a message that its /home/martin/mail thats
 missing might be better as it may fail to create it...

Many thanks,

PS If you get the bounced messages that have the wrong from address, I'm having a little trouble remembering to adjust my mail clients ;)
