That's hard, given dovecot pointed at the same maildir: it quickly moves files from new to cur. That makes notmuch insert pretty useless, and I rely on notmuch new to approach correctness. But maybe I misunderstand: is the idea that it will return an error but keep processing? Or stop on that error? _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
