i followed the instructions in the "GNU Emacs on Windows NT and Windows
to set up .EMACS but i can't get it work. The expression (insert (getenv

"HOME")) then C-x C-e return the right value. Also i tried several HOME
combination (HOME=C:/, HOME=C:\, HOME=C:....) and different directorys.
At the moment i have: HOME=c:\usr; and the .emacs-file:

(set-background-color grey)
(standard-display-european 1)
(setq user-full-name "Harald Wolf")
(setq user-mail-address "haraldwolf@swol.de")
(setq smtpmail-default-smtp-server "mail.swol.de")
(setq smtpmail-local-domain nil)
(setq send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)
(load-library "smtpmail")
(load-library "message")
(setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)

(setenv "MAILHOST" "mail.swol.de")
(setq rmail-primary-inbox-list '("po:XyWfddetr")
rmail-pop-password-required t)
