Hello Ben,

I tested your hypothesis and noted that the messages did not pop up
with a poll.

Since this behavior does not seem intentional, I guess it's a regression
caused by some combination of factors (possibly the new backsync branch?)
I'll try to reproduce on a clean Maildir with sup commit 900768918490a1040b55e2216f7f5429b2dadf84

Cheers,
Edward

Ok, that's interesting.  If it helps, I'm running on 3f9d7d9, with my
conditional Symbol#to_proc patch added...I haven't done a pull since
then although the patch was merged.

This might provide you a useful range for a bisect though...

HTH.

If it's maintained in the least then it's probaby better than rmail, but
if Sup started require activesupport I would jump off a bridge.

...and was definitely pulled in when I installed the gem.  As I said,
it's more heavy weight, but it is very nice to use so far.

Neither of those even resemble a reliable method of checking whether or not the
thing actually uses activesupport. :P

$pwd /home/pi/mail$ egrep -ir require.\*active .
./lib/mail.rb:  require 'active_support'
./lib/mail.rb:  require 'active_support/core_ext/hash/indifferent_access'
./lib/mail.rb:  require 'active_support/core_ext/object/blank'
./lib/mail.rb:  require 'active_support/core_ext/string'

There you have it.

### make all messages archived or read?

Hello,

Is there any easy way to mark all messages in the search results as

I have tried "T=a", however that has two problems:

* That will only affect messages that are currently loaded in the
search results. Ideally I want this to happen to all messages, without
having to load everything into current buffer.
* All messages currently archived will be unarchived - not what I want.

Similar for "T=N".

Also it isn't even obvious how to tag all messages, "T" is a toggle.
Seems like "=tT" will work though.

In contrast adding/removing labels is better (supports -label to
remove label) although even here I got confused (+label syntax adds a
label that is literally +label; I was expecting it to add a label
called label).

Thanks.

### searches

Hello,

Where is the best documentation on performing searches?

I have noticed some quirks:

\label:VLSCI

finds nothing, even though lots of emails are labeled VLSCI.

\label:vlsci

finds all these emails.

finds all vlsci OR unread emails - I would have assumed that should be AND?

How do I perform and AND operation?

Thanks

The above looks like you are doing them one at a time.  If you do this:
