It's a bit fiddly, with edge cases.

    $ echo path: $PWD >profile
    $ export MH=$PWD/profile
    $ mhparam draft-folder
    $ comp -noedit -nowhatnowproc
    Welcome to nmh version 1.7+dev
    Press enter to continue: 

    $ ls
    context  draft  profile
    $ cat draft

    Fcc: +outbox
    $ echo draft-folder: drafts >>profile
    $ mhparam draft-folder
    $ comp -noedit -nowhatnowproc
    Create folder "/home/tmp/1529073058.514439883/drafts"? yes
    $ mhpath +$(mhparam draft-folder) last
    $ comp -noedit -nowhatnowproc
    $ comp -noedit -nowhatnowproc
    $ mhpath +$(mhparam draft-folder) last

Cheers, Ralph.
