Saving mail in folders

You can customise the mail program so that all your mail files are automatically held in one directory. These files are known as folders.

To do this:

  1. Create a directory to keep your mail folders in.
  2. Set the value of the environment variable folder to the pathname for this directory.

To save a file to a folder in this directory, save the mail as usual, and append a + (plus sign) to the name of the file (folder) that the mail is to be stored in.
