User-Agent: Build Identifier: When Gloda (Indexing) is de-activated, automatically reset/empty its global-messages-db.sqlite in order to release hard disk space. Currently when gloda/indexing is disabled, the global-messages-db.sqlite remains in the profile folder forever filled with obsolete data. Reproducible: Always
This an interesting idea. But there are a few things to be adressed: - Should it at the same time prompt regarding imap auto sync? - Some people, testers for example, will not want the db deleted when disabling indexing
(In reply to comment #1) > - Should it at the same time prompt regarding imap auto sync? Probably only if the user decided to use IMAP synchronization. I think there is also a bug pending somewhere to automatically switch to server-side searches if the user decides to disable indexing. > - Some people, testers for example, will not want the db deleted when disabling > indexing Yeah, this could/should have a prompt ("do you really?") before removing the index file. Reindexing takes considerable resources, thus it shouldn't be removed automatically if the user wants to only temporarily switch it off.

(In reply to comment #2) > also a bug pending somewhere to automatically switch to server-side searches if > the user decides to disable indexing. That's bug 543416, at least in part (relates to offline synchronization, but the same applies to indexing switched off for message-body searches).
