       notmuch-new - incorporate new mail into the notmuch database


       notmuch new [options]


       Find and import any new messages to the database.

       The  new  command scans all sub-directories of the database, performing full-text indexing
       on new messages that are found. Each new message will automatically be  tagged  with  both
       the inbox and unread tags.

       You  should  run  notmuch new once after first running notmuch setup to create the initial
       database. The first run may take a long time if you have  a  significant  amount  of  mail
       (several  hundred  thousand  messages  or  more). Subsequently, you should run notmuch new
       whenever new mail is delivered and you wish to incorporate it into  the  database.   These
       subsequent runs will be much quicker than the initial run.

       Invoking  notmuch  with  no  command argument will run new if notmuch setup has previously
       been completed, but notmuch new has not previously been run.

       notmuch   new   updates   tags   according   to    maildir    flag    changes    if    the
       maildir.synchronize_flags  configuration  option  is  enabled.  See  notmuch-config(1) for

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

       Supported options for new include

              Prevents hooks from being run.

              Do not print progress or results.

              If true, when encountering an encrypted message, try to decrypt it while  indexing,
              and stash any discovered session keys.  If auto, try to use any session key already
              known to belong to this message, but do not attempt to use the user's secret  keys.
              If decryption is successful, index the cleartext of the message.

              Be  aware  that  the  index  is likely sufficient (and the 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).

              By default notmuch-new uses directory modification times (mtimes) to  optimize  the
              scanning of directories for new mail. This option turns that optimization off.


       This command supports the following special exit status code

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