Sounds like a plan.  It's a good MUA.

I guess.  You can probably set that to override the default.  The
default (at least as compiled for debian) is one of /var/mail/$USER or
/var/spool/mail/$USER.  (it doesn't really matter -- one is a symlink
to the other)

The variable isn't set.

is that you do not belong to God.
