Yep, I'm using Tracker. But Tracker for Lenny still lacks Icedove
integration so I have to use Icedove embedded search, which is fine but
so basic. And I need to keep Icedove because of its hmtl support. Another
option is Evolution but always found it too much resource consuming and
bloated.

I would like to see Icedove supporting both, mbox and maildir :-)

I use recoll, which has no MUA integration. I'm thinking of configuring
Sylph-Searcher, which uses a postgresql backend.

I don't do HTML mail

Sylph uses MH, similar to maildir, but can import and export mbox.
