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
