Thanks for your reply! I only installed notmuch today, so please take this into 
account when considering my thoughts.

´new´ already removes messages from the index if the files are gone. Removing 
those but keeping newly ignored messages seems inconsistent to me and it did 
confuse me.

Why would I ever want to keep an ignored email in the index? In regard to 
indexing, I don’t see much of a difference between deleted and ignored. I don’t 
want search results for either.

I’d guess setting up notmuch and creating a ´notmuch new´ cronjob is not that 
uncommon. If a user later adds ignores, they are likely to run into this issue. 
If the indexing followed the config by purging anything ignored, this would 
“just work.”

Best wishes,
Markus
