mairix for Email System Utilities Publisher's description
from Richard Curnow
mairix is a program for indexing and searching email messages stored in Maildir.
mairix is a program for indexing and searching email messages stored in Maildir, MH or mbox folders.
Some features are:
- 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" maildir (or MH) folder with symlinks which point to the real messages. This folder can be opened as usual in your mail program. (Note, if messages are in mbox folders, copies are made. Similarly if the virtual folder has mbox format, it is filled with copies of the matched messages.)
- 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.
