The other is the mailcap file, which specifies the external commands to use for You can view attachments as text, or view them using the mailcap viewer. Instruire Mutt sur la conduite à tenir face à certaines pièces set mailcap_path = “~/.mutt/mailcap” alternative_order text/html text/plain set. When an attachment is viewed using an interactive program, and the corresponding mailcap entry has a needsterminal flag, Mutt will use $wait_key and the exit.

Too large or too small values can waste space, memory, or CPU time.

If the command returns 0, then the test passed, and Mutt uses this mut. Without this flag, Mutt assumes that the command is interactive. Mutt uses the command gzip -c to create a new compressed file. There are various command-line options, see either the Mutt man page or the reference.

The same problems as for mbox apply also with finding the right message separator as four control-A’s may appear in message bodies. A negative value causes Mutt to wait indefinitely for the connection attempt to succeed. For example, a command action to perform is to change the sorting method mutg upon the mailbox being read:.

Here is an example showing how to implement dynamic date formatting:. If you ever lose track of attachments in your mailboxes, Mutt’s attachment-counting and -searching support might be for you. When combined with -Ethe include file will maolcap directly edited during message composition.


You can abbreviate this to I or A.

Forwarding a message allows you to add comments or modify the message you are forwarding. This flag specifies the command to use to print a specific MIME type.

Mutt and HTML email

Note that the brackets in these class names are part of the symbolic names, and must be included in addition to the brackets delimiting the bracket list. The command line is used to display informational and error messages as well as for prompts and for entering interactive commands.

When set, color is applied only to the exact text matched by regexp.

The substring part may nailcap omitted if you simply wish to find messages containing a particular header without regard to its value. How can we quote the plain text version instead of HTML? When Mutt has finished with a compressed mail folder, it will look for a matching close-hook to recompress the file.

It is often desirable to change settings based on which mailbox you are reading. When setmutt will not show the subject of messages in the thread tree that have the same subject as their parent or closest previously displayed sibling.

Sometimes it is desirable to perform an operation on a group of messages all at once rather than one at a time. In addition, Mutt supports version specific configuration files that are parsed instead of the default files as mailcp above. Mutt would try to find corresponding entries for rendering attachments of these types as text.


Setting this variable will cause Mutt to automatically enable and disable encryption, based on whether all message recipient keys can be located by Mutt. This variable controls whether or not a Mail-Followup-To header is honored when group-replying to a message.

The Mutt E-Mail Client

When browsing folders on an IMAP server, you can toggle whether to look at only the folders you are subscribed to, or all folders with the toggle-subscribed command. There’s also the multipart major type which represents the root of a subtree of MIME parts. There exists no way to reliably deduce the mxilcap set a plain text file has.

The alias command can appear anywhere in a configuration file, as long as this file is source d. Mutt has an append-hook whose regexp matches the filename: How much information you actually see depends on your configuration, which we’ll describe below. This is a space separated list, items should be uppercase and not contain the colon, e. For a complete list, see the command reference. After some experimentation, I found that links is far superior to html2text.
