I've never setup any of the three FTS plugins. I've only seen, that the
plugins are used as mail_plugin in the protocol imap/pop3 sections.

When the index should be up-to-date all the time (what's very important
(IMHO)), I'm asking myself: Why are there no fts plugins for the lda and
lmtp section? When the index would by updated on delivery, it should be
always up-to-date. Or did I overlook something?

Just a quick idea: How about a Xapian <http://xapian.org/> fts plugin?

The trapper recommends today: fabaceae.1005606 at localdomain.org
