Hi all,

I've investigated a bit further.

In my config, I have:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
[database]
path=/home/horn/Mail/Dovecot
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

In that directory, there are two symlinks pointing to the real mail
location in /var/spool/mail:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
[horn at localhost][~/Mail/Dovecot][0][5213]
[:)] % ll
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 horn horn 34 Nov 23 14:49 fastmail -> 
/var/spool/mail/fastmail/mailboxes
lrwxrwxrwx 1 horn horn 29 Nov 23 14:49 uni -> /var/spool/mail/uni/mailboxes
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Whenever I delete those symlinks and created them anew, the new mails
get indexed with the next "notmuch new".  Of course, I could create a
script that does exactly that, but there should be a better way, right?

Bye,
Tassilo
