DESCRIPTION

       NeoMutt is a small but very powerful text based program for reading and sending electronic
       mail under Unix operating systems, including support for color terminals,  MIME,  OpenPGP,
       and a threaded sorting mode.

       Note:  This  manual  page  gives  a  brief overview of NeoMutt's command line options. You
       should find a copy of the full manual in  /usr/share/doc/neomutt,  in  plain  text,  HTML,
       and/or PDF format.

OPTIONS

       --     Special  argument  forces  NeoMutt  to  stop  option  parsing  and  treat remaining
              arguments as addresses even if they start with a dash

       -A alias
              Print an expanded version of the given alias to stdout and exit

       -a file
              Attach one or more files to a message (must be the last option). Add any  addresses
              after the '--' argument, e.g.:

                     neomutt -a image.jpg -- address1
                     neomutt -a image.jpg *.png -- address1 address2

       -B     Run in batch mode (do not start the ncurses UI)

       -b address
              Specify a blind carbon copy (Bcc) recipient

       -c address
              Specify a carbon copy (Cc) recipient

       -D     Dump all configuration variables as 'name=value' pairs to stdout

       -D -S  Like -D, but hide the value of sensitive variables

       -d level
              Log  debugging  output  to  a  file (default is "~/.neomuttdebug0").  The level can
              range from 1–5 and affects verbosity (a value of 2 is recommended)

              Using this option along with -l is useful to log the early startup process  (before
              reading any configuration and hence $debug_level and $debug_file)

       -E     Edit draft (-H) or include (-i) file during message composition

       -e command
              Specify a command to be run after reading the config files

       -F config
              Specify  an  alternative initialization file to read, see FILES section below for a
              list of regular configuration files

       -f mailbox
              Specify a mailbox (as defined with mailboxes command) to load

       -G     Start NeoMutt with a listing of subscribed newsgroups

       -g server
              Like -G, but start at specified news server

       -H draft
              Specify a draft file with header and body for message composing

       -h     Print this help message and exit

       -i include
              Specify an include file to be embedded in the body of a message

       -l file
              Specify a file for debugging output (default "~/.neomuttdebug0")

              This overrules $debug_file setting and NeoMutt keeps up to five debug logs ({  file
              | $debug_file | ~/.neomuttdebug }[0-4]) before override the oldest file

       -m type
              Specify a default mailbox format type for newly created folders

              The type is either MH, MMDF, Maildir or mbox (case-insensitive)

       -n     Do not read the system-wide configuration file

       -p     Resume a prior postponed message, if any

       -Q variable
              Query  a configuration variable and print its value to stdout (after the config has
              been read and any commands executed)

       -R     Open mailbox in read-only mode

       -s subject
              Specify a subject (must be enclosed in quotes if it has spaces)

       -v     Print the NeoMutt version and compile-time definitions and exit

       -vv    Print the NeoMutt license and copyright information and exit

       -x     Simulate the mailx(1) send mode

       -y     Start NeoMutt with a listing of all defined mailboxes

       -Z     Open the first mailbox with new message or exit immediately with  exit  code  1  if
              none is found in all defined mailboxes

       -z     Open  the  first  or  specified  (-f)  mailbox  if  it  holds  any  message or exit
              immediately with exit code 1 otherwise

ENVIRONMENT

       EDITOR Specifies the editor to use if VISUAL is unset. Defaults to the Vi editor if unset.

       EGDSOCKET
              For OpenSSL since version 0.9.5, files, mentioned at RANDFILE below, can be Entropy
              Gathering  Daemon  (EGD)  sockets. Also, and if exists, ~/.entropy and /tmp/entropy
              will be used to initialize SSL library functions. Specified sockets must  be  owned
              by the user and have permission of 600 (octal number representing).

       EMAIL  The user's email address.

       HOME   Full path of the user's home directory.

       MAIL   Full path of the user's spool mailbox.

       MAILCAPS
              Path to search for mailcap files. If unset, a RFC1524 compliant search path that is
              extended with NeoMutt related paths (at position two  and  three):  "$HOME/.mailcap
              :/usr/share/neomutt/mailcap:/etc/mailcap:/etc/mailcap:/usr/etc/mailcap:/usr/local/
              etc/mailcap" will be used instead.

       MAILDIR
              Full path of the user's spool mailbox if MAIL is  unset.  Commonly  used  when  the
              spool mailbox is a maildir(5) folder.

       MM_NOASK
              If this variable is set, mailcap are always used without prompting first.

       NNTPSERVER
              Similar  to  configuration  variable  $news_server,  specifies  the  domain name or
              address of the default NNTP server to connect. If unset,  /etc/nntpserver  is  used
              but can be overridden by command line option -g.

       RANDFILE
              Like  configuration variable $entropy_file, defines a path to a file which includes
              random data that is used to initialize SSL library functions. If unset,  ~/.rnd  is
              used. DO NOT store important data in the specified file.

       REPLYTO
              When set, specifies the default Reply-To address.

       TEXTDOMAINDIR
              Defines an absolute path corresponding to /usr/share/locale that will be recognised
              by GNU gettext(1) and used for Native Language Support (NLS) if enabled.

       TMPDIR Directory in which  temporary  files  are  created.  Defaults  to  /tmp  if  unset.
              Configuration variable $tmpdir takes precedence over this one.

       VISUAL Specifies the editor to use when composing messages.

       XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
              Specifies   a  X  Desktop  Group  (XDG)  compliant  location  for  the  system-wide
              configuration file, as described in FILES section below. This variable defaults  to
              /etc/xdg. Bypass loading with command line option -n.

       XDG_CONFIG_HOME
              Specifies  a  XDG  compliant  location for the user-specific configuration file, as
              described in FILES section below. This variable defaults to $HOME/.config.  Can  be
              overridden by command line option -F.

FILES

   Configuration files
       NeoMutt will read just the first found configuration file of system-wide and user-specific
       category, from the list below and in that order.

       But it allows building of a recursive configuration by using the source command.

   Other relevant files
       Unless  otherwise stated, NeoMutt will process all grouped files in the order (from top to
       bottom) as they are specified in that listing.

       ~/.mailcap
       /etc/mailcap
              User-specific and system-wide definitions for handling non-text MIME types, look at
              environment variable MAILCAPS above for additional search locations.

       ~/.neomuttdebug0
              User's  default  debug  log  file. For further details or customising file path see
              command line options -d and -l above.

       /etc/mime.types
       /etc/mime.types
       /usr/share/neomutt/mime.types
       ~/.mime.types
              Description files for simple plain text mapping between  MIME  types  and  filename
              extensions.  NeoMutt  parses  these  files  in  the  stated  order while processing
              attachments to determine their MIME type.

       /usr/share/doc/neomutt/manual.{html,pdf,txt}
              The full NeoMutt manual in HTML, PDF or plain text format.

       /tmp/neomutt-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
              Temporary files created by NeoMutt. For custom locations look at description of the
              environment variable TMPDIR above. Notice that the suffix -XXXX-XXXX-XXXX is just a
              placeholder for, e.g. hostname, user name/ID, process ID and/or other random data.
