8.1.3 Setting up nnir

To set up nnir you may need to do some prep work. Firstly, you may need to configure the search engines you plan to use. Some of them, like imap and gmane, need no special configuration. Others, like namazu and swish, require configuration as described below. Secondly, you need to associate a search engine with a server or a backend.

If you just want to use the imap engine to search nnimap servers, and the gmane engine to search gmane then you don't have to do anything. But you might want to read the details of the query language anyway.
