NAME

       notmuch-insert - add a message to the maildir and notmuch database

SYNOPSIS

       notmuch insert [option ...] [+<tag>|-<tag> ...]

DESCRIPTION

       notmuch  insert  reads  a  message  from  standard  input and delivers it into the maildir
       directory given by configuration option database.path, then incorporates the message  into
       the notmuch database. It is an alternative to using a separate tool to deliver the message
       then running notmuch new afterwards.

       The new message will be tagged with the  tags  specified  by  the  new.tags  configuration
       option,  then  by operations specified on the command-line: tags prefixed by '+' are added
       while those prefixed by '-' are removed.

       If the new message is a duplicate of an existing message in  the  database  (it  has  same
       Message-ID),  it  will  be  added to the maildir folder and notmuch database, but the tags
       will not be changed.

       The insert command supports hooks. See notmuch-hooks(5) for more details on hooks.

       Option arguments must appear before any tag operation arguments.   Supported  options  for
       insert include

       --folder=<folder>
              Deliver  the  message  to the specified folder, relative to the top-level directory
              given by the value of database.path. The default is the empty string,  which  means
              delivering to the top-level directory.

       --create-folder
              Try  to  create  the  folder  named  by  the --folder option, if it does not exist.
              Otherwise the folder must already exist for mail delivery to succeed.

       --keep Keep the message file if indexing fails, and keep the message indexed  if  applying
              tags  or  maildir  flag  synchronization fails. Ignore these errors and return exit
              status 0 to indicate successful mail delivery.

       --no-hooks
              Prevent hooks from being run.

       --world-readable
              When writing mail to the mailbox, allow it to be  read  by  users  other  than  the
              current  user.  Note that this does not override umask.  By default, delivered mail
              is only readable by the current user.

       --decrypt=(true|nostash|auto|false)
              If true and the message is encrypted, try to decrypt the  message  while  indexing,
              stashing  any  session keys discovered.  If auto, and notmuch already knows about a
              session key for the message, it will try decrypting using that session key but will
              not  try  to access the user's secret keys.  If decryption is successful, index the
              cleartext itself.  Either way, the message is always stored to disk in its original
              form (ciphertext).

              nostash  is the same as true except that it will not stash newly-discovered session
              keys in the database.

              Be aware that the index  is  likely  sufficient  (and  a  stashed  session  key  is
              certainly sufficient) to reconstruct the cleartext of the message itself, so please
              ensure that  the  notmuch  message  index  is  adequately  protected.  DO  NOT  USE
              --decrypt=true or --decrypt=nostash without considering the security of your index.

              See also index.decrypt in notmuch-config(1).

EXIT STATUS

       This  command  returns  exit status 0 on successful mail delivery, non-zero otherwise. The
       default is to indicate failed mail delivery on any errors, including message file delivery
       to  the filesystem, message indexing to Notmuch database, changing tags, and synchronizing
       tags to maildir flags. The --keep option may be used to settle for successful message file
       delivery.

       This  command supports the following special exit status code for errors most likely to be
       temporary in nature, e.g. failure to get a database write lock.

       75 (EX_TEMPFAIL)
              A temporary failure occurred; the user is invited to retry.

       The exit status of the post-insert hook does not affect the  exit  status  of  the  insert
       command.
