./mail/mairix, Program for indexing and searching email messages

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.21, Package name: mairix-0.21, Maintainer: simonb

mairix is a program for indexing and searching email messages stored in
Maildir, MH or mbox folders.

* Indexing is fast. It runs incrementally on new messages - any particular
message only gets scanned once in the lifetime of the index file.

* The search mode populates a "virtual" folder with symlinks(*) which
point to the real messages. This folder can be opened as usual in your mail
program.

* The search mode is very fast.

* Indexing and searching works on the basis of words. The index file tabulates
which words occur in which parts (particular headers + body) of which
messages.

The program is a very useful complement to mail programs like mutt
(http://www.mutt.org/, which supports Maildir, MH and mbox folders) and
Sylpheed (which supports MH folders).

[(*) where the input or output folder is an mbox, a copy of the message is made
instead of symlinking.]

and the check that mfolder isn't going to overwrite a real folder when \ 
searching.
    * Check whether database exists before attempting to do searching.
    * Matched new maildir messages go in /new/ subdirectory of maildir mfolder.
    * Fix lots of compiler warnings generated by gcc4.x

found in an mbox.
