Hi,

I'm in the process of trying to set up reading email in the terminal and
just installed notmuch, which looks like a pretty awesome tool. I currently
have one question nagging me:

I have a lot of mail in my native Hungarian, which properly written is full
of characters like éáűúü, but if someone's writing on a non-Hungarian
keyboard, or just quickly writing an email from a phone, they often drop
the accents as it's faster and we'll likely understand anyway. Is it
possible to set it up that if I search for "lanc" it would also match
"lánc" other than going `notmuch search lanc OR lánc`?

Thanks very much,
Bence Ferdinandy

There is some previous discussion at

      https://nmbug.notmuchmail.org/nmweb/search/id%3A87efp2b9er.fsf%40tethera.net

I don't think anyone worked on this in the meantime, so I guess the
short answer is that there is currently no support, but people have
tossed around some ideas.

Thanks! I didn't know unicode equivalence existed, but it seems to be the
feature I want, so at least now I have a name for it :) And yes, actually
setting the stemmer would also be cool, I saw that Xapian has a Hungarian
stemmer but I kind of assumed all stemmers are applied somehow (although it
makes sense they're not). Is stemming done during search or would it affect
the database as well? Just to have a notion of how complicated a settable
stemmer feature would be.

Stemming happens both during search (unless turned off for given term)
and at indexing time. So yeah, changing the stemming algorithm with
change the database (and require a re-index).
