Hi, I decided to give notmuch a spin and installed version 0.18.1 on my mail provider's shell server. The layout offered by my mail provider's Dovecot is such that INBOX is stored in Maildir format at ~/Maildir and other folders are stored as subfolders of ~/Maildir, filename of each directory beginning with a period. In addition, ~/Maildir contains files 'dovecot-uidlist' and dovecot-uidvalidity', and each subdirectory contains an empty file 'maildirfolder' in addition to the usual cur, new and tmp. I don't know if this is an unusual layout or not.
When I run 'notmuch new' I get: Found 9903 total files (that's not much mail). Error reading file /home/users/(username)/Maildir/.act/.act: No such file or directory Processed 1 file in almost no time. Added 1 new message to the database. Note: A fatal error was encountered: Something went wrong trying to read or write a file The subdirectory .act is really the first (alphabetically) subdirectory of ~/Maildir, but .act/.act does not exist and I don't know why notmuch tries to read it. In a following run the .act subdirectory gets replaced by .Drafts, but the error is the same. So for some reason 'notmuch new' tries to read for each subdirectory a deeper subdirectory which does not exist. Only emails in the top-level INBOX folder are added to the database. The same collection of email offlineimap'd to my local computer and with a more plain layout (each folder as a subdirectory of ~/mail, no dots) is read without problems. What could be going wrong here? Is this a layout that should be indexed by notmuch?
