[arch-general] Where is $MAIL set?

I'm using fetchmail and postfix to get mails into the spool.
I changed location of spool in main.cf and login.defs
but $MAIL still contains the value of /var/spool/mail/nilesh.

I changed the spool directory in the configuration to /home/MAIL/.
For now I'm working with setting $MAIL in ~/.bash_profile, but where's 
the global setting?
