As someone that has only looked into mairix a few times but not used it,
I'd find the pointer helpful, I think.

Oh, IMAP destinations. So PATH isn't a great choice then. In that
case, switching to MFOLDER or LOCATION as the placeholder sounds fine to
me. I guess MFOLDER would be good at this point for consistency with `q
--help'. I've made a note to do that when updating the lei manpages
(hope to get to that tomorrow or the next day) assuming you haven't
handle it before then.
