NAME

  install-mh - initialize the MH environment

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/lib/mh/install-mh [-auto]

DESCRIPTION

  When a user runs any MH program for the first	time, the program invokes
  install-mh (with the -auto switch) to	query the user for the initial MH
  environment. The user	does not invoke	this program directly. The program
  prompts for the name of the directory	to be designated as the	user's Mail
  directory. If	this directory does not	exist, install-mh asks if it should
  be created. Normally,	this directory should be under the user's home direc-
  tory,	and has	the default name of Mail. After	install-mh has written the
  initial .mh_profile for the user, control returns to the original MH pro-
  gram.

  As with all MH commands, install-mh first consults the $HOME environment
  variable to determine	the user's home	directory. If $HOME is not set,	then
  the /etc/passwd file is consulted.

  If the -auto option is used, the current folder is changed to	+inbox.
