I used to use namazu, then switched to nnmairix. Unfortunately I
recently cleaned up my emacs/gnus init files, including a big block of
long-commented code (and expletive-littered notes to self) related to my
old namazu installation, so I can't really tell you why I switched. All
I can remember is that I was happier afterwards. I think it had
something to do with the fact that mairix is much more target to email,
and had more mail-specific features. Sorry…

One disadvantage of mairix is that it only seems to perform ascii
indexing, ie no Latin-1 or UTF-8 (is this right?). If you use other
languages often, it's something to take into consideration.
