Hi,

Coming from mu4e I loved the query "contact" which includes "to" or
"from" the contact in the results.
Is there something equivalent in notmuch?

thx

⮩ Hi, Erik, I don't think notmuch has a built-in `contact` query, but I
think it's easy to build a saved search.

  (add-to-list 'notmuch-saved-searches '(:name "query" :query "to:... or from:..." :key "r"))

`:key` part is optional.

I use "to:xxx" or "from:yyy" in my notmuch searches all the time for
emails to/from the specified contact.

If you have notmuch with sexp queries there is a pure notmuch solution:

notmuch config set squery.Contact '(macro (x) (or (from ,x) (to ,x)))'

Use it with either of the following forms:

notmuch count --query=sexp -- '(Contact erik)'
notmuch count sexp:'"(Contact erik)"'

Fun fact: I learned this by mistaking your emacs lisp for sexp first
and vaguely remembering the existence of sexp macros, then rtfming ...
