     198      <para>
     199        For displaying mails, <application>mailx</application>
     200        uses a pager program. Since the default of <command>pg</command>
     201        is not available on a LFS system, its required to
     202        specify which pager is to use. By default, there is
     203        <command>more</command> and the more comfortable
     204        <command>less</command> installed. If the
     205        variable PAGER is not set in <filename>/etc/profile</filename>
     206        or <filename>~/.bash_profile</filename>, or if it
     207        should be another pager just for reading mails, it can be
     208        set system wide in <filename>/etc/nail.rc</filename>:
     209      </para>
     210
     211<screen><userinput role="nodump">echo "set PAGER=&lt;more|less&gt;" &gt;&gt; /etc/nail.rc</userinput></screen>

     217      <para>
     218        Other interesting options to set in the config files might
     219        be EDITOR and MAILDIR.
     220      </para>
     221
     222      <para>
     223        If not set in the environment for other packages, the
     224        default editor can be set by:
     225      </para>
     226
     227<screen><userinput role="nodump">echo "set EDITOR=&lt;vim|nano|...&gt;" &gt;&gt; /etc/nail.rc</userinput></screen>
     228
     229      <para>
     230        Depending on which kind of <xref linkend="server-mail"/> is
     231        installed, it might be required to set the MAILDIR variable
     232        so <application>mailx</application> is able to find the mails:
     233      </para>
     234
     235<screen><userinput role="nodump">echo "set MAILDIR=Maildir" &gt;&gt; /etc/nail.rc</userinput></screen>
