Hi all,

I have recognized the following:

in order to get the mails, stored in the secondary private namespace,
indexed I have to manually do:

doveadm index -u user -q MainArchive/

or doveadm index -A -q MainArchive/

fts_autoindex does not seem to work for other namespaces than INBOX.

Is this a bug or desired functionality ?

Thank you for your kind help

best regards
