That could very well be acceptable.

A user would have to carefully configure notmuch to get this
behavior. Options for that could include the following in




I think that if either of the above options are set that notmuch won't
need to change the message's filename. And in that case, I would feel
that it wouldn't be entirely unreasonable for notmuch to leave message
in the "new" directory.

This allows the user to effectively setup a mail-store that notmuch
treats as more-or-less "read only" and that seems like a useful thing.

Please experiment with that and feel free to send the patch or patches
that you generate.

Thanks again, and I hope you can find a way to make notmuch work for
