NAME
       install-mh - initialize the nmh environment

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/libexec/nmh/install-mh [-auto] [-check] [-version] [-help]

DESCRIPTION
       Install-mh  is  the  nmh	 program  to  create  the  initial setup for a
       first-time nmh user.  Install-mh	lives in  two  places  for  historical
       reasons.

       The -auto option	does things as automatically as	possible and makes in-
       stall-mh	less chatty.

       The user	is asked for the name of the directory that will be designated
       as  the	user's	nmh  directory.	 If this directory does	not exist, the
       user is asked if	it should be created.  Normally, this directory	should
       be  under  the  user's  home  directory,	 and  has  the default name of
       ``Mail''.  Install-mh writes an initial .mh_profile for the user.

       As with all nmh commands, install-mh first checks for the existence  of
       the  $MH	environment variable since that	gives the profile path if set.
       If it isn't set,	the $HOME environment variable is consulted to	deter-
       mine  the  user's  home	directory.   If	 $HOME	is  not	 set, then the
       /etc/passwd file	is consulted.

       When creating the users initial .mh_profile, install-mh will check  for
       the  existence  of  a global profile /usr/local/etc/nmh/mh.profile.  If
       found, this will	be used	to initialize the new .mh_profile.

       The -check option can be	used to	check whether or not nmh has been  in-
       stalled.	  This	can  be	used by	other programs to determine whether or
       not nmh has been	installed without their	having to know	the  internals
       of nmh.
