+Hi,
+
+When I search I get lots of:
+
+    ln: failed to create symbolic link „/home/<username>/.cache/mutt_results/cur/<mail>: File exists
+
+I'm guessing that this is due to my current setup, where I have a lot of symlinks to keep the maildrop sort rules very generic, but still conflate some folders  (e.g. .debian.devel-announce -> .debian.devel). In the end it works, but the failures are annoying :)
+
+Is this something that your script can handle or should it be handled in notmuch itself (assuming it makes sense to do so)?
+
+Thanks,  
+Andrei
