I've recently switched to namazu for nnir because it seems to have better
support for searching on specific mail headers, and because it indexes so much
faster than swish-e (and with much less load while doing it).

But, for mail searching, if you are using maildir, check out mairix. I haven't
looked at integrating it into emacs yet, but it builds a maildir folder
containing links to the matching messages, which you can then browse in Gnus. I
can't believe how fast it searches -- it's unreal. I use mairix to search my
maildir groups and namazu on the nnml groups. But I plan on shifting everything
over to maildir (nnimap actually).
