Hi again,

let me prepend:

- I store my mails in MH format.  Dunno how setup may be different for

- I'm the opposite of a Gnus expert

- It's long ago that I configured this, but following

   (info "(gnus) nnmairix")

 was, at the end, sufficient

Only quite trivial stuff:

- (require 'nnmairix)

- an entry

    (nnml "mairix")

  in `gnus-secondary-select-methods' (this belongs to the server for
  reading the matches as a group, see below)

- (add-hook
   (lambda ()
     (define-key gnus-group-mode-map [?s] #'nnmairix-search)))

that's for being able to use nnmairix as mairix backend for Gnus.  With
this you can't yet read the results from Gnus.  You must set up an nnml


that knows were to find the mail folder that mairix populates with
the matching messages.  Then this folder is available in the *Group*
buffer, or at least subscribable.

Don't give up, although it's a bit hairy, it's worth the trouble.  The
Info pages are quite helpful.

Good luck,
