I believe that they will. <http://www.go-evolution.org/Camel.Search> certainly suggests that Evolution [Camel] utilizes IMAP SEARCH. And I search 100,000+ message folders and get results way to fast for Evolution to have done the work itself. > I know it tends to build its own > indices, and so suspect the server side indices are irrelevant (I think > it takes an IMAP SEARCH command to access them). I do not believe Evolution indexes the *content* of messages which is what Cyrus SQUAT does. And to do so Evolution would need to download the entire contents of a mailbox - which can be ridiculous for many mailboxes [due to both size and quantity of mailboxes]. Of course Beagle can index contents of messages but only if they are stored locally. > I'm on evo 2.22 on Debian Lenny. > Evolution-hackers mailing list > Evolutionemail@example.com > http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
