for what it's worth, i stopped trying to do large-scale searching of
my mail with the mh commands long ago, and instead use mairix:

   mairix f:vixie s:imap
   folder +mx

(where mairix is preconfigured to put its results into folder "mx")

the downside, of course, is that since i run the mairix indexing from
cron[1] at night, today's mail isn't indexed.  so i do use pick and
friends for very recent mail.  if mairix did incremental indexing,
this wouldn't be necessary.

and, of course, the mairix searching solution doesn't further the
remote access cause at all.


[1] thank you, paul!  :-)
