@defvar user-mail-address
This holds the nominal email address of the user who is using Emacs.
When Emacs starts up, it computes a default value that is usually right,
but users often set this themselves when the default value is not right.
Emacs normally sets this variable to a default value after reading your
init files, but not if you have already set it. So you can set the
variable to some other value in your @file{~/.emacs} file if you do not
want to use the default value.
