My normal mail workflow is to keep todo's in my inbox; these can be a few days or weeks old if I'm lazy. Every now and then I find myself accidentally removing things from the inbox, and I have a very hard time finding things back. As discussed on #notmuch IRC today: I'd like to request a feature for searching for the last N modified mails, as notmuch already has this info in the database.
bremner suggested this could be implemented using with a query like lastmod:-10 14:39 < Zevv> basically, I'd like to be able to search for the last 10 modified mails. Where 'modified' would probably mean changing tags 14:41 < bremner> Zevv: you can get the current value from notmuch count --lastmod '*' 14:41 < bremner> then basically every tag change increments it 14:42 < bremner> so I guess subtract 10 and search? 14:44 < Zevv> Hm that would make it hard to use it as a simple query for in alot 14:45 < bremner> yes. 14:45 < bremner> I never thought about it before, but it would be possible to impliment lastmod:-10 14:47 < Zevv> that would be extremely handy -- :wq ^X^Cy^K^X^C^C^C^C _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
