Extra info and code examples

nmzmail is a tool, primarily to be used with mutt, for indexing and searching maildir folders. Based on the result of a search query using the search engine namazu2, nmzmail generates a maildir folder containing symbolic links to the mail(s) matching the query. A simple mutt macro makes it easy to use nmzmail from within mutt. nmzmail is similar to mairix (another email index/search program), but perhaps easier to use since it uses the query syntax of namazu2. Features: - fast mail searching even with large quantities of mail - incremental index building - integrates very nicely into mutt - rich, but simple, query language including regex - query history
