Mairix Question

Hello,

I am trying to use mairix for the first time and attempting to use Indexing.
However, I am trying find out where the .mairixrc file is located and what the file should contain in order to
find the mbox.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,

Having multiple database files

I am using mairix to index ~17GB of mbox files (the mairix database is
~730MB) and find that rebuilding the database is becoming sluggish
(because the database is completely written from scratch on every
update invocation).

Since the majority of my mbox files are effectively archives that don't
change, having several database files would make updates significantly
faster.  Has anyone looked at adapting mairix to handle multiple 
database files, where each database would only need rewriting if any of
its input files changed.

Alternatively, has anyone looked at using a more traditional database
(that allows incremental updates)?

substring search within Message-ID

Hi,

Since version 0.23, substring search in Message-ID is no longer
possible:

 "Do not interpret special characters [~,/=^] in Message-ID queries"

I wonder if it is possible to add a switch to command line options to
enable interpretation of the special characters (default can be
Disabled). I really miss the substring search feature.

I have a program that creates a "URL" of a message based on the
message ID, which I can use point (almost) uniquely to a message. For
example, a message ID <1234567890abc <at> mail.com> will lead to a URL
mail:123678abc because I took the first three chars, last three chars
and three chars in the middle. With this tag, I COULD find the message
by doing

  mairix m:123=,678=,abc <at> =

but no longer so since 0.23. I could use the whole ID, but that would
be too long and not necessary (I use these URLs in my text file).

So my request is, can you consider adding a switch to the command line
to enable interpretation of special chars for message-ID? I know this
will create a problem for message IDs that have special chars in them,
but those cases can be dealt with by guaranteeing that the URL does
not use any special chars. And since the switch is by default off, it
will not affect current users.

[PATCH] Prefer the local delivery date over the sender's date

I have been using this patch in my own copy of mairix for many years now, 
and rather than keeping it private I thought it worth sharing.

In general, it seems bad to trust the "Date:" header in incoming mails as 
this is set by the sender and is not always correct (eg. spam, incorrect 
clock)

But when Exim delivers to my mailbox, it adds a Delivery-Date. So if this 
exists, I use it instead. So inbound mail uses this, while my outbound 
mail only has a "Date:" header but this is trusted as it was set by me.

This makes searching for mails in, eg. last 3 months, work as expected 
Results are no longer polluted by those with a Date in the future, for 
example.

mairix just exits with "Killed"

I’m trying to run mairix on some very large mbox files and it runs for a few minutes and then outputs “Killed” and exits. Anyone have any ideas?

 

.mairixrc contents:

-----------------------

base=~/d/UserData

mbox=Mboxes/*...

mfolder=SearchResults

format=mbox

database=~/d/UserData/mairix.db

Filtering of duplicate results

In cases where I have sent via a mailing list, I will often get two copies 
of a message. eg. one in my outbox, the other in my inbox via the mailing 
list; or one in the mailing list folder, and one CC'd personally to me in 
my inbox.

Is there a way to filter these duplicates from mairix results?

Perhaps an optional detection based on message-ID could be implemented. 
I've yet to look into the code; could this be done reasonably within the 
architecture?

Thanks
