Okay. But I think the manual could be more direct about this.
Instead of saying:
MAIL If this parameter is set and <em>mailpath</em> is not set,
the shell looks for mail in the specified file.
I think it would be more explicit if it said:
MAIL If this parameter is set, the shell looks for mail
in the specified file. But if <em>mailpath</em> is set,
the shell will look in the file specified by <em>mailpath</em>.
<em>mailpath</em> overrides <em>MAIL</em>.

(You may have already seen my question to him about that.)
Actually, I saw your message before I saw Bart's. I was looking here
(in zsh-users) for a response, and, although Bart sent his response to
me directly, it managed to go into a mailbox other than my inbox.
Also, he appears to have cc:'d it to zsh-workers, but not zsh-users:

Since I use mutt, I should probably be doing the same thing.

That's good news, but I'm stuck on something -- still not getting either
a defined (as per in your mailpath setting) or a default notification
mailpath=($HOME/.mailspool/rj'?New mail has arrived.')
though it seems as though I should be . . .
