Email index and search tool

mairix is a program for indexing and searching email messages stored in Maildir, MH or mbox folders. Indexing is fast. It runs incrementally on new messages - any particular message only gets scanned once in the lifetime of the index file. The search mode populates a virtual maildir (or MH) folder with symlinks which point to the real messages. This folder can be opened as usual in your mail program. The search mode is very fast. Indexing and searching works on the basis of words. The index file tabulates which words occur in which parts (particular headers + body) of which messages.

To install mairix, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install mairix
