- For those of you who care about this, do you have any thoughts about how
a mapping from an MH message number to a particular Maildir filename
would work? At first glance that's the thing that leaps out at me
as the most obvious problem without a simple solution.
agreed, this is the major thing that stops UW-IMAP from being a good MH
back end, too. i suspect that we'll be building a .db (or .dir/.pag)
file per folder that maps the UIDL from the Maildir file name to a
static number, so that things like "pack" and "sortm" can still have
useful work to do.
Alright, I'll the limits of my knowledge here. UIDL is a POP thing,
right? Do you mean UID when talking about IMAP?
It seems that IMAP has the concept of a "message sequence number",
which is a number from 1 to the number of messages in a folder; that
might be the right thing to use. Of course it's not clear to me how
Dovecot maps a message number into a particular filename; I'll have to
look at that.
