Use the Mail File Directory text field to specify the directory where mail files are stored when you move or copy messages from your In-Box to mail files. For example, you might want to name the directory mail, maildir, or mail_files. Unless a full path name is specified, the directory is considered a subdirectory of your home directory. If the directory name you specify does not exist, a Notice is displayed asking if you want to create the directory when you click SELECT on the Apply button. See "Organizing Your Mail Messages" for more information about using the Mail File directory.
