Dear notmuch crowd,
I heard about notmuch mail a few days ago and I started playing with
it. So far, it makes me very happy, but there are some things that I
need to learn how to do. I'll start with the most important one:
tagging incoming messages automatically.
What is the recommended way of achieving this? There is a variety of
things that I would like to automatically do to incoming mail:
- if it comes from a mailing list (e.g. notmuch), tag it +notmuch and
+unread, but not +inbox
- if it's one of the numerous pointless weekly newsletters that I'm
getting from my university, tag it +unimelb, but not +unread or +inbox
- if it is coming from me, tag it +sent, but not +unread or +inbox
There's probably more, but this is a good start. Any advice?
[My current email setup is as follows: get messages from the Gmail
account using fetchmail; run procmail with a bunch of recipes that put
the messages into various maildirs; read the results with mutt. (Oh,
and send mail with msmtp from mutt.)]
