From:David Bremner

Notmuch tries to prevent users from shooting themselves in the foot by
indexing mboxes containing multiple messages. On the other hand some
MTAs (notably common configurations of postfix) like to deliver mail
to file the looks like mboxes. This can occasionaly cause problems
where notmuch thinks a file is an mbox, but it really isn't (see patch
2/6).  This series makes the corresponding check optional, while
defaulting to preserving the current behaviour.
