Indexes and searches messages in Maildir, MH, or mbox folders

'mairix' is a tool for indexing and searching email messages stored in Maildir, MH, or mbox folders. The index contains a map of which words occur in which parts of which messages. Searches generate symlinks to the matching messages in a new Maildir or MH folder, or copies of matching messages in an mbox folder, which can be browsed normally in a mail client. Searching and indexing are very fast. Indexing runs incrementally on new messages, so any particular message only gets scanned once in the lifetime of the index file.
