For me, my IMAP needs are pretty much limited to my iPhone. I'm making
do for now, but to make notmuch viable in the long term, what I'd need
* notmuch shouldn't choke on mails I had in notmuch's database, and
then marked read or deleted on my iPhone (which renames them in the
maildir). This is coming with the moving/deleting patches.
* notmuch should sync back read/unread state to maildir
* notmuch should move read stuff out of my inbox. It would be
acceptable if it moved everything into a designated archive folder
unless it had the 'inbox' tag assigned, in which case it moved it
there. Note that we have the moving/deleting patches, then this could
even be done as a script and some searches.
With this, my inbox would be usable from my iPhone.
