By default mail files and mail messages larger than 3 blocks are stored
in separate files. These files have names of the form
MAIL$nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.MAI and reside in your mail directory. By default, your mail directory is your login directory. Mail message files are deleted from your mail directory when you delete mail messages from within PMDF MAIL. Should you delete a message file from outside of PMDF MAIL, you will be met with an error when you next try to read that message from within PMDF MAIL.
To prevent these files from cluttering up your login directory, you can move them to a subdirectory of your login directory. Do this from within PMDF MAIL with the SET MAIL_DIRECTORY command:
EMAIL> SET MAIL_DIRECTORY/LOG [.MAIL] %EMAIL-I-CREATED, D1:[SUE.MAIL] created %EMAIL-S-RENAMED, D1:[SUE]MAIL.MAI;1 renamed to D1:[SUE.MAIL]MAIL.MAI;1 %EMAIL-S-RENAMED, D1:[SUE]FOOD.MAI;1 renamed to D1:[SUE.MAIL]MEMOS.MAI;1 %EMAIL-S-RENAMED, D1:[SUE]MAIL$8E9A5A4500050097.MAI;1 renamed to D1:[SUE.MAIL]MAIL$8E9A5A4500050097.MAI;1 %EMAIL-S-RENAMED, D1:[SUE]MAIL$8E9A5A4600050097.MAI;1 renamed to D1:[SUE.MAIL]MAIL$8E9A5A4600050097.MAI;1 %EMAIL-I-MODRECORDS, 1 record modified EMAIL>
