Subject Re: Indexing in pieces?

I think you can simply change you sql to select only the recently updated
messages, and add to your existing index. Although adding to an existing
large index also takes a long time, it should be quicker than re-building
the whole index.

If your index continues to grow, you may need to have a dedicated server for
indexing and searching.
