I am currently writing a hook to set it.  It need to be displayed
because user may not know what it is (he could only know is uid and

"Your email is blah at blah.com" displayed to reduce support call.

Well, I do but horde/config/motd.php is not displayed in the "Horde::My
Summary".  I am using a snapshot from 07/17/03; is this need to be
configured somewhere ?
