I think it's ~/.zprofile. I believe you can get it to source your .profile by putting the line

[[ -e ~/.profile ]] && emulate sh -c 'source ~/.profile'

in a ~/.zprofile file. If you were using a ~/.bash_profile you can copy it to ~/.profile or change the line.

Personally, I'm most familiar with the bash shell so I made it my default. You then get an annoying notification that you should change to the zsh but there is a link which gives you a command (I don't remember what it is since you need only run it once) to get rid of that message. Aaahhh... back to familiar territory.

Good Luck,
