mailest provides a search backend and id index database for
Mew using Hyper Estraier.
Categories: mail
How to start
+ For existing `mewest` user, backup and/or delete the database
- Since "mailestd" can work with the old database, so OK to skip deleting
`~/Mail/casket`, but remark that `V` will not work against the mails
which are indexed by `mewest`.   To make `V` work against them, delete
the database in advance.
+ Add the below line to `.mew.el` to let Mew use "Hyper Estrairer" for
((setq mew-search-method 'est)
+ Add the below lines to `~/.emacs` use use the "mailest" instead of
existing "mewest".
(defvar mew-prog-est        "mew-mailest")
(defvar mew-prog-est-update "mew-mailest")
(defvar mew-prog-cmew       "cmew-mailest")
(defvar mew-prog-smew       "smew-mailest")
(defvar mew-id-db-file      ".mailest.sock")
+ Try `km`, `kM`, `k/`, `k?`, `V` in Mew.  See for search commands
in Mew.
