NAME
       install-mh - initialize the nmh environment

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

DESCRIPTION
       install-mh  creates  the	 initial setup for a first-time	nmh user.  in-
       stall-mh	is installed in	two locations for historical reasons.

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

       The  user is prompted for the name of the directory to 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, if  set,  gives  the  profile
       path.   If it isn't set,	the $HOME environment variable is consulted to
       determine the user's home directory.  If	$HOME is  not  set,  then  the
       /etc/passwd file	is consulted.

       When creating the user's	.mh_profile, install-mh	will check for the ex-
       istence of  a  global  profile  at  /usr/local/etc/nmh/mh.profile.   If
       found, this will	be used	to initialize the new .mh_profile.

       The  -check  switch  checks  if nmh is installed.  (This	can be used by
       other programs to determine if nmh has been installed.)

FILES
       $HOME/.mh_profile   The user's profile.

CONTEXT
