Re: indexing Maildir mails

It seems that the directory structure for maildir is not standardised.
This page talks about two possible formats:

Ubuntu seems to be coming up with yet another naming standard (more at ). And to talk
about kmail, their structure is given in and it doesnt
seem they have any plans of changing it soon
( ).

However, all these are different conventions for directory structures.
I think it might still be possible to recusrively scan for cur/ new/
tmp/ directories in the maildir directory and find rfc822 files in
them. At least, that is what I think does.

I will see if I can recursively scan directories and pick up mail
files for indexing.
