The mail program uses several files. They are:

/usr/spoMail.rc

~username/.mailrc

A personal start-up file in your home directory. You have to create this file and its contents.

~username/mbox

The file in your home directory where your mail is stored once it has been read.

~username/dead.letter

The file in your home directory where any mail message that you decide not to send is stored.
