If i add a message to my notmuch database that includes References: or In-Reply-To: of a message-id that i don't have, notmuch creates a "ghost" entry in the database.
If i remove the message from my mail archive, and then re-run "notmuch new", i'd expect all traces of that message to be gone completely. However, the ghost message-IDs appear to remain in the database. I've tested this by: * create a demo notmuch installation * use delve -a to see that there is nothing in the db * add a message to it * run "notmuch new" * use delve -a (from xapian-tools) to see the list of terms * remove the message * run "notmuch new" * use delve -a to see that the ghost terms remain This suggests that if i include a bogus message-id in my References: list for any mail i send to a notmuch user, then access to their database will let me tell whether they ever saw it or not, regardless of whether they deleted the message. Deletion by the user should be final -- i don't like it when tools snitch on their users. How should this be fixed? --dkg _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
