It sounds like a lot of people are wanting to do that. So it probably wouldn't hurt for someone who's done it to write up instructions for that, (or post a link to existing instructions). I'd say that it might make sense to put these up in a wiki, (and I'll probably eventually setup an ikiwiki instance for notmuchmail.org just like I do for cworth.org and cairographics.org). But then again, we're *already* using email, and I've got this half-baked idea about being able to just tag useful posts and have them appear on the webpage. > A few days ago I sent a patch which converts mail subdirectories to > tags and because Gmail IMAP server converts labels to subdirectories, > you can use that to convert gmail's labels to notmuch tags > automatically. I haven't lost that. Sorry it's taking me a bit to get to it, though! I think there were two different patches from two people for this feature. So I've got those both tagged and will review them soon. -Carl
