Ahhh.  Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to find.

Richie Crews was the first to respond with the answer:
If he has a local email account you can look in /var/mail/username file
for his mail. Now this will be plain text. However if his mail is not
stored locally there is no way.

There was indeed a local email account, and I found the problem.  Thanks
to all who responded so quickly.

Richie Crews, Dale Fay, Dale Poulter, Ric Anderson, Chris Ruhnke, Ed
Farrar, & Eric Sisson.

Thanks to all.
