mutt + notmuch = perfect mail setup?

February 6th, 2011 by lucas

Following Our Leader, I’ve just switched to using notmuch with mutt for searching (instead of maildir-utils, previously). I strongly recommend this setup to all mutt users.

As a bonus, accented characters (é, è, …) are now handled correctly while searching, which is quite useful in french.

    Good! Now you’ll just have to switch to Emacs as a mail reader :)
