Apologies; if it helps Emacs barfs with the following
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp nil)
string-match("^\\(imap\\|pop\\)s?$" nil nil)
rmail-insert-inbox-text(("/var/spool/mail/jpff" "/mnt/snout/home/jpff/mbox") t)
rmail-get-new-mail-1(nil ("/var/spool/mail/jpff" "/mnt/snout/home/jpff/mbox") nil)
call-interactively(rmail-get-new-mail nil nil)
where /mnt/snout is the NFS mounted filing system and
/mnt/snout/home/jpff/mbox is the mailbox in question. the other,
/var/spool/mail/jpff, is not used except in error cases

jessie->stretch upgrade it fails with emacs barfing.
Can you give more details, like the error message(s) from Emacs?
