[neomutt-users] [TIP] Relative Config Files

Hi Everyone,

Once you've been using NeoMutt for a while, your config file will grow
as you customise every aspect of NeoMutt.

Mutt allows you to include config files using the 'source' command:

Config File: ~/.mutt/muttrc

    source ~/.mutt/colours.rc
    source ~/.mutt/crypto.rc
    source ~/.mutt/notmuch/queries.rc

NeoMutt's source command works relatively:

Config File: ~/.neomutt/neomuttrc

    source colours.rc
    source crypto.rc
    source notmuch/queries.rc

Much tidier :-)

To learn more about config files, see the NeoMutt guide:
