If your spool mailbox is in a non-default place where Mutt cannot find
it, you can specify its location with this variable. Mutt will
automatically set this variable to the value of the environment
variable $MAIL if it is not set.
If you don't know where your spool mailbox is, you can look in /var/mail
or $HOME/Mail. Once you've found it, either set your MAIL environment
variable (best solution, as other software may benefit from it) or set
$spoolfile in your ".muttrc".
If you have several incoming mailboxes, e.g. for mailing-lists, you
can use the "mailboxes" command.
