$HOME would simply be

  :set folder=

however; Mail(1) (and POSIX) yet don't document expansion, but
only state

  If this name begins with a `/', mail considers it to be an
  absolute pathname; otherwise, the folder directory is found
  relative to your home directory.

And do you see any issues with the simplifying and multibyte-safe
patch in PR bin/47577 (the clean one using mblen(3))?
It's working fine for me on UTF-8, and should do well for all
multibyte encodings that have a clear notion of sequence leaders
and follow bytes ('don't know wether there are ambiguous ones);
it is anyway better than the version in CVS in respect to that.
