The most likely cause of that is that you are logged in as a JIRA Administrator, rather than a JIRA System Administrator.  Could you check that?  (Look in global permissions for the different groups and check what groups your account is in)

Thanks for the response.  I logged in as admin who is part of 

Ok, so who is set up for the system administration rights?

Isn't this enough?   I still dont see the Incoming mail option

Yes, that's the right permission.

What happens when you go to admin and type "incoming" into the admin search box?

if i type incoming, nothing gets listed.. Also here is what I see in the menu:

That suggests that either you are still not a system admin, or that the incoming email facility has been disabled (by command line switch or turning off a module somewhere)

Have a look in the system information page for the command line parameters you're running with and disabled add-ons/modules
