+* "Not much mail" is what Notmuch thinks about your email
+  collection. Even if you receive 12000 messages per month or have on
+  the order of millions of messages that you've been saving for
+  decades. Regardless, Notmuch will be able to quickly search all of
+  it. It's just plain not much mail.
+* "Not much mail" is also what you should have in your inbox at any
+  time. Notmuch gives you what you need, (tags and fast search), so
+  that you can keep your inbox tamed and focus on what really matters
+  in your life, (which is surely not email).
+* Notmuch is an answer to Sup. Sup is a very good email program
+  written by William Morgan (and others) and is the direct inspiration
+  for Notmuch. Notmuch began as an effort to rewrite
+  performance-critical pieces of Sup in C rather than ruby. From
+  there, it grew into a separate project. One significant contribution
+  Notmuch makes compared to Sup is the separation of the
+  indexer/searcher from the user interface. (Notmuch provides a
+  library interface so that its indexing/searching/tagging features
+  can be integrated into any email program.)
+* Notmuch is not much of an email program. It doesn't receive messages
+  (no POP or IMAP suport). It doesn't send messages (no mail composer,
+  no network code at all). And for what it does do (email search) that
+  work is provided by an external library, Xapian. So if Notmuch
+  provides no user interface and Xapian does all the heavy lifting,
+  then what's left here? Not much.
+Notmuch is still in the early stages of development, but it does
+include one user interface, (implemented within emacs), which has at
+least two users using it for reading all of their incoming mail. If
+you've been looking for a fast, global-search and tag-based email
+reader to use within emacs, then Notmuch may be exactly what you've
+been looking for.
+Otherwise, if you're a developer of an existing email program and
+would love a good library interface for fast, global search with
+support for arbitrary tags, then Notmuch also may be exactly what
+you've been looking for.
