I have archives going back to November.  They are searchable, but the
indexer keeps crashing and I haven't yet tracked down why, so I'm not
sure how up-to-date the indices are.

  path = /home/%U

%U means the authenticated username.  And no, this won't work if your
users don't have a regular home directory path like /home/%U.  Also,
you probably want to make sure you aren't in "security = share" mode.
