>>> Probably mail does not get indexed due to mtime checks. Please try

>> No, it seems that doesn't help either.
TH> Ah, I'm stupid! I don't have to touch the symlinks or the
TH> directories inside the locations the symlinks point to, but instead
TH> I have to touch the top-level directory where the symlinks are
TH> contained in. Then it works as expected, AFAICT.
