Function mh-mairix-execute-search executes mairix with a path of (format "%s%s/config" mh-user-path mh-mairix-directory). As such the path of the configuration file must take the form mh-user-path/mh-mairix-directory/config, thereby constraining the usable file name to "config." The default mairix configuration filename is ${HOME}/.mairixrc, according to the mairix man page in version 0.21. If the full path of the filename were customizable, then users could use the default filename and still make mairix usable from MH-E.

    This sounds like a good idea and is probably also true for the other search engines. Certainly (format "%s%s/config" mh-user-path mh-mairix-directory) can be the default.

    This is a feature request so recategorizing it as such.
