I know your problem is solved, but I wanted to explain this a bit further.

The idea was, a million years ago(*), that you'd never have to adjust mail
server setting on a per-user basis.  So all of that stuff went into mts.conf
(which generally holds system-wide settings not editable by the end user).

Well, we're a long way from that nowadays.  A lot of commands now have
options to control stuff that was formerly only done via mts.conf, so
a number of things have migrated to .mh_profile.  We still try to keep
a division between global settings and user-specific settings, but that
line is blurrier than it used to be.
