In Thunderbird I use:

In pine I use:
folder-collections=Mail {localhost/notls}Mail/[]

It has something to do with the default_mail_env, which does not work 
well and seems to be broken for backward compatibility (I should have 
tested the snapshot from yesterday :-) ):

Not OK in 1.0rc11, but ok in 1.0rc10:
default_mail_env = mbox:~:INBOX=/var/mail/%u

OK in 1.0rc11:
mail_location = mbox:~:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
