Ah! I did not know about MHMTSCONe Thank you.

Suppose I want to do something like:

mts=/usr/local/nmh/etc/mts.conf    #depends on installation
sed < $mts >| /tmp/mts.conf -e '/^servers:/s/:.*/: localhost/'
MHMTSCONF=/tmp/mts.conf mhmail norm -from norm -subject "$1"

But replacing /usr/local/nmh/etc/mts.conf with the location of mts.conf.
Is there some way a script can know the location of nmh's etc directory?
