I use the same config file for notmuch for multiple machines (as part
of my dotfiles). These machines have different users so I want to have
the database relative to the home directory.

I tried setting the database director to "~/.mail" and "$HOME/.mail"
and neither worked.
Is there a way to set the database directory relative to home?

Thanks,
Tohiko

If you have notmuch >= 0.32 everywhere, you can use the XDG
locations documented in notmuch-config(1). Otherwise relative paths in
section database are interpreted relative to $HOME (documented in the
same place).  So "notmuch config set database.path .mail" ought to work.
