got it.....short for 'mailhome".....
Sylpheed is executed for the first time, it automatically creates the configuration files under $HOME/.sylpheed/, and asks you the location of mailbox. The default is $HOME/Mail. If some files which are non-MH format already exist on the directory, you will have to specify another location.
Thank you Brian. I was having a minor panic attack as a family member has developed a pasion for hacking others email accounts.....and his initials are....MH
Back to Sylpheed.....appears to do what is says it does. It has loaded up two accounts from gmail without a murmur.
( For anyone else reading this topic...I am running Linux Mint 18.2, and Sylpheed can be found in software manager)
Condobloke ...Outback Australian fed up with Windows antics...??....LINUX IS THE ANSWER....I USE LINUX MINT 18.3 EXCLUSIVELY.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
