How does the environment stay set

I am running this pre-script with a post scripts that needs to share the same variables. How do I keep the environment variable settings for the next script to access from the RMAN Script?

Prescript #1

#RMAN Script
LOGDIR=/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/scripts/logs/rman;export LOGDIR
CURRTIME=`date +"%y%m%d%H%M%S"`;export CURRTIME
START=`date +"%m/%d %H:%M"`
rman msglog $LOGF <<EOF

RMAN script# 2

connect target backup_admin/emcnw@INVPRD.WORLD
backup database;
release CHANNEL t1;

Post script # 3

if [ $RC -ne 0 ]
END=`date +"%H:%M"`
#mailx -s "$MSG ", < $LOGF
mailx -s "$MSG " < $LOGF
# 2

Source prescript #1 inside the RMAN script, or write a 3rd script to do this
. script1

I can't get what script #3 does. But the idea is to get the ENV variables defined in #1 to persist.
