Re: indexing Maildir mails


The only issue in Maildir case (Kmail at least) is the fact that most
if not all the directories start with a "." (the name of the folder),
which by default, as far as I remember are regarded by Beagle has
hidden and shouldn't be indexed.

I am not sure whether they have addressed this or not.
