Mutt has an append-hook whose regexp matches the filename: If you ever lose track of attachments in your mailboxes, Mutt’s attachment-counting and -searching support might be for you. If a regular expression contains parenthesis, or a vertical bar ” “you must enclose the expression in double or single quotes since those characters are also used to separate different parts of Mutt’s pattern language.

All files passed with -a file will be attached as a MIME part to the message. This variable controls the size in number of strings remembered of the error messages displayed by mutt. To select any messages two weeks around January 15,you’d use the following pattern:.

The difference between the two types of quotes is similar to that of many popular shell programs, namely that a single quote is used to specify a literal string one that is jailcap interpreted for shell variables or quoting with a backslash [see next maailcapwhile double quotes indicate a string for which should be evaluated. Of course, you can also get to the HTML part. The default metamail mailcap file uses this feature to test the charset to spawn an xterm using the right charset to view the message.

This includes for example polling for jailcap mail, storing Fcc messages and saving messages to a folder. For boolean variables, you may optionally prefix the variable name with inv to toggle the value on or off. Specifies the type of folder to use: This means that mailcap does not work out of the box with programs which detach themselves from the terminal right after starting, like open on Mac OS X.

This can be overridden by use of the pgp menu, when signing is not required or encryption is requested as well. The hooks are expanded when they are declared, so a hook will be interpreted according to the value of this variable at the time the hook is declared. To optionally print a string based upon one of the above sequences, the following construct is used:.


Mutt and HTML email

This is passed to the strftime 3 function to process the date, see the man page for the muht syntax. That is accomplished easily enough with an entry in muttrc and another in a mailcap file.

This works in exactly the same way as it would when limiting or searching the mailbox, except that you are restricted to those operators which match information Mutt extracts from the header of the message i. The default is to send the body of the MIME message to the command on stdin. This causes lynx mjtt continuously spawn itself to view the object.

The keybindings described in this section are the defaults as distributed. This variable points to the header cache database. Type conversion applies to all configuration commands which take mtut. When unsetcolor is applied to the entire header.

Mallcap you are using colors to mark these lines, and rely on these, you may unset this setting. When this variable is setmutt will beep when an error occurs.

Especially with MH mailboxes, this operation can take quite some time since it involves scanning the directory and checking each file to see if it has already been looked at.

It is the mapping from a short alias name to the full email address es of the recipient s. Others provide a command line argument that can use this to set the output width:. On the top of the pager you have an overview over the most important email headers like the sender, the recipient, the subject, and much more information. Mutt is highly configurable, and is well suited to the mail power user with advanced features like key bindings, keyboard macros, mail threading, regular expression searches and a powerful pattern matching language for selecting groups of messages.

Especially, do not run Mutt as the super user. For some IMAP servers, enabling this will slightly speed up downloading initial messages. Mutt translates them into the correct color and character settings. This maiocap specifies a command to run to test whether this mailcap entry should be used.


Mutt applies some logic on top of remote messages but cannot change them so that modifications of flags are lost when messages are downloaded from the POP server either by Mutt or other tools.

This is helpful when your systems character conversion library insists on using strange, system-specific names for character sets. This allows you to bind a key to a certain function in multiple menus instead of having multiple bind statements to accomplish the same task. The keywords Mutt mailcxp are: These changes are not persistent, and get lost upon changing folders.

When setMutt will show you international domain names decoded. If a mailbox matches multiple folder-hook s, they are executed in the order given in the.

The following printf 3 -style sequences are available:. In addition, at the various address prompts, you muutt use the tab character to expand a partial alias to the full alias.

Posted by davee To get most out of MIME, it’s important that a MIME part’s content type matches the content as closely as possible so that the recipient’s client can automatically select the right viewer for the content. So, you can have mutt render the HTML abomination in w3m in most cases, and when those instances of particularly cretinous behaviour make it to your inbox, you can choose to view them in your web browser.

The close-hook will be used for empty, or missing files. For instance, when replying to a message that you sent to a different party, Mutt will automatically suggest to mailcal the response to the original message’s recipients — responding to yourself won’t make much sense in many cases.
