Good to know as there is no set spoolfile=* in my
/etc/Muttrc file.  While googling I did pick up some
example muttrc files and also some in the
/usr/share/doc*muttrc.examples but don't remember
which source I copied to /etc. Since there are so many
to choose from do you recommend one.  I'll look at also.  Thanks for the info and tips,
