As far as I can see, `mail-host-address' is irrelevant when

Thanks for the clarification.

Then the variables that that I think are salient to a .emacs file and
that should be the same regardless of operating system would be:



Thanks also for these. One point that feels mysterious when you are new to these is the storing. Is this the same for all different mail agents in Emacs?

Another mysterious point is the settings for different mail agents. The setting above seems to suggest that this if for RMAIL only? Is that the case? If not why are for example rmail-pop-password not called just mail-pop-password? It does not really look agent specific to me. Or does the different agents inherit from some common values? I would expect an inheritance from mail-pop-password => rmail-pop-password if the latter was not set. It feels natural and from a beginners point it would be very good.
