I've been looking to change email clients from Claws-Mail to something
a little lighter. A couple questions about notmuch-vim...

* If I use it with my local dovecot IMAP server, can I configure
  notmuch-vim to not delete messages I read, and only delete messages I
  explicitly delete from within notmuch-vim?

* When people send me HTML email, as they always do, is there something
  I can attach to notmuch-vim in order to format that HTML email as
  something readable, that shows links where they're supposed to be?
  (NOTE: I never SEND HTML email, so I'm only asking about receiving).
