I don't know how to print out environment variables, but 
echo $MAIL


echo $mail 

both are empty.

I should have mentioned this to begin with, but the actual message
I am getting is;

"you have mail in /usr/david"

which points to my home directory, which maybe is the result
when $MAIL is empty. However, I don't see what specific file
in /usr/david that would be triggering the message.  I do notice
that I am getting incoming mail in /usr/david/tmp which each 
carry the mutt-??? tag.  Note;

$ cd /usr/david/tmp
$ ls -tl
