 +======Synopsis:​======
 +[[set]] mail [<​0|1|2|3>​]
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +This setting affects how the client checks for new mail.  When set to
 +0 (zero), mail checking is disabled. ​ When set to 1 (one), the client
 +will periodically report how many new messages have arrived since the
 +last check, and the total message count. ​ When set to 2 (two), the
 +client shows the sender and subject of each new message as well.
 +When set to 3 (three), the client does everything it does when set to
 +2, and it will also reset the mtime and atime for your mail box after
 +it is done reading it.
 +
 +======Other Notes:​======
 +The client will only search for new mail in the user's mail spool. ​ The
 +mail spool directory location is hardcoded into the client at compile
 +time.
