I'm using swish-e to index a mailing list (over 6000 messages, about
60MB). I'm using both the MetaNames and PropertyNames directives in
my config file, as follows:
MetaNames date from subject
PropertyNames date from
Now, everything was working until just a few hours ago. Searches with
metaname=subject work just fine:
$ swish-e -f index -w 'subject=monitor'
# Search words: subject = monitor
# Number of hits: 22
However, searches with metaname=from now fail miserably, for no apparent
$ swish-e -f index -w 'from=lars'
# Search words: = lars
err: no results
That last line in the output preamble bothers me...what happened to 'from'?
This worked fine yesterday, it worked fine this morning, and now it doesn't
-- thus completely disabling any attempt to search for messages by sender.
Eureka, I found it!
This problem was caused by one small change in my config file. I
uncommented the following line:
And this broke it. Commenting out this line makes everything work fine.
This looks like a bug. Is that a correct assessment, or is Swish-E
supposed to work this way?
Thanks for your help,
