Hello,

 

Notmuch seems to be a good solution for dealing with emails in Emacs. I've
learned that Notmuch as been packaged for a few Linux, BSD and macOS
operating systems.

 

Now, is there a way to have Notmuch running in Windows (v. 8.1) with Emacs?
Is there a reasonable workaround? 

 

Thank you for you time and feedback.

Some years ago, Claudio Bley ported notmuch to Windows [1]. Looking at
github [2], it looks like that project is no longer active. I have
copied Claudio in case he has more up to date information.

The easy path would presumably be to use WSL(2?). I have seen discussion
of that in various web searches, but I don't have any personal
experience with it (and iirc, it needs a newer Windows?).

Dear David,

Thank you for your feedback. I've just moved (100%) to Linux. Problem
solved.

And thank you Claudio for your time and work so notmuch could run on
Windows.

All the best.
