Dovecot IMAP Full Text Search with Lucene

On ns7 the upstream dovecot package is compiled against the clucene library. It’s easy to enable the Lucene index that should speed up the IMAP full-text search feature. More info:

Is it really that fast?

I think we should enable the fts_autoindex=yes option, as documented on Dovecot’s wiki. However to evaluate this feature properly I would need a real-world mail server (or a copy of it at least) with big mailboxes, so I opted for the more conservative setup at the moment. What do you think?

Can we test it using body search on SOGo or Webtop?

Yes, of course. However I find the IMAP server response more informative for the test purpose.
