In most cases, system mail will be sent to root. If you edit
the file /etc/mail/aliases, you can redirect any mail sent
to root to your local user account (/var/mail/<yourname>)
and then use TB to retrieve it from there (just as it would
have been recieved by fetchmail).

Don't forget to "make aliases" and restart the sendmail
subsystem, see /etc/mail/Makefile for details.
