A mailfile, as I understand it, is the whole thing merged into one file, with a blank line or something as a separator, and an index file containing the starting offset and read status of each message in the main file to speed up the search for new mail.

Is that structure/function of the mailfile found only in connection with certain specific MUA's, those which, for example, might implement or somehow make use of it?

I know about maildir, mbox and mh, but not mailfile. But don't sweat this Gene; if I was really curious I'd google the goshdarn thing!
