I recently setup mu4e. My Setup : emacs25, mu 0.9.18, macOS Sierra
mbsync to download my emails.
When I do
M-x mu4e, I get error
error in process sentinel: Database empty; try indexing some messages
But I have :)
mu4e-maildir. It is correct (which is where
mbsync has downloaded the messages.)
mu index (as well as
mu index --maildir=~/Maildir just in case) also worked well.
I can use
mu find <pattern> successfully.
mu4e can't seem to find the DB
I think this is some configuration mismatch.
How do I troubleshoot this ?
- About 4 year old issue, without conclusive solution with exact same error : https://github.com/djcb/mu/issues/198 (Edit: I read http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.mail.mu.general/938 thread. I mentioned above, I am not using
mbsyncas mentioned above)
- I have asked this question first on reddit (Albeit it started in slightly different context where I couldn't even get
mu4eto work. But now I'm past that. https://www.reddit.com/r/emacs/comments/5srva7/mu4e_0918_emailing_with_emacs_now_even_better/deyf717/
