configuration of the mblaze message system

The mblaze(7) message system can be configured with a profile file, which is located in the directory ~/.mblaze (or MBLAZE if set.)

profile consists of lines, similar to RFC 2822 headers, in the form

key: value

The key ‘#’ may be used to precede a comment:

#: comment

Please note that empty lines will halt parsing.

The following keys are used by mblaze(7):

Your primary mail address, used as the default value for From: in mcom(1), and in mscan(1) to recognize messages sent to you.
A comma-separated list of mail addresses that also belong to you, for mscan(1) to recognize messages sent by or directly to you.
The fully qualified domain name used for Message-Id: generation in mgenmid(1).
If set, mcom(1) will create draft messages in this maildir, and save messages there after sending.
A comma-separated list of mail addresses (formatted like this: ‘My Name <username@domain>’) that are automatically used for the From: header in a reply if present in the To:, Cc:, or Bcc: header. If not set, Alternate-Mailboxes: will be used as a default.
The default format string for mscan(1).
The program that mcom(1) will call to send mail. (Default: ‘sendmail’).
Flags to be passed to the Sendmail: program. (Default: ‘-t’).

Directory containing mblaze configuration files. (Default: $HOME/.mblaze)
