Fast mail searching for mutt
nmzmail is a tool to use the namazu2 search engine from within a mail reader such as mutt to search mail stored in maildir folders. Based on the result of the namazu query, nmzmail generates a maildir folder containing symbolic links to the mails matching the query. Mutt and other mail readers can make it easy to use nmzmail with a simple macro.
- fast mail searching even with large number of mails
- incremental index building
- rich query language including regular expressions see the namazu documentation
- integrates nicely into mutt
- query history
