This code path is not currently tested, and will need updating if the
location of the xapian database changes.

+Notmuch is configured, but there's not yet a database at
+
+	MAIL_DIR/.notmuch
+
+You probably want to run "notmuch new" now to create that database.
+
+Note that the first run of "notmuch new" can take a very long time
+and that the resulting database will use roughly the same amount of
+storage space as the email being indexed.
