NAME

       neomuttrc - Configuration file for the NeoMutt Mail User Agent (MUA)

DESCRIPTION

       A NeoMutt configuration file consists of a series of “commands”. Each line of the file may
       contain one or more commands. When multiple commands are used, they must be separated by a
       semicolon (“;”).

       The  hash  mark,  or pound sign (“#”), is used as a “comment” character. You can use it to
       annotate your initialization file. All text after the comment character to the end of  the
       line is ignored.

       Single  quotes  (“'”)  and  double quotes (“"”) can be used to quote strings which contain
       spaces or other special characters. 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 not interpreted for shell variables or quoting  with
       a  backslash  [see next paragraph]), while double quotes indicate a string which should be
       evaluated. For example, backticks are evaluated inside of double quotes,  but  not  single
       quotes.

       “\” quotes the next character, just as in shells such as Bash and Zsh. For example, if you
       want to put quotes (“"”) inside of a string, you can use “\” to force the  next  character
       to be a literal instead of interpreted character.

       “\\”  means  to  insert  a  literal  “\”  into  the line. “\n” and “\r” have their usual C
       meanings of line feed (LF) and carriage return (CR), respectively.

       A “\” at the end of a line can be used to split commands  over  multiple  lines,  provided
       that the split points don't appear in the middle of command names.

       It  is also possible to substitute the output of a Unix command in an initialization file.
       This is accomplished by enclosing the command in backticks (`command`).

       Unix environment variables can be accessed like the way it is done in shells like  sh  and
       Bash: Prepend the name of the variable by a dollar (“$”) sign.

COMMANDS

   Configuration Commands
       The following are the commands understood by NeoMutt:

       account-hook regex command

              This  hook  is  executed  whenever  you  access  a remote mailbox. Useful to adjust
              configuration settings to different IMAP or POP servers.

       alias [ -group name ... ] key address [, address ... ]
       unalias [ -group name ... ] { * | key ... }

              alias defines a surrogate key for the  given  address(es).  Each  address  will  be
              resolved  into  either an email address (user@example.com) or a named email address
              (User Name <user@example.com>).  The address may be specified in either format,  or
              in the format “user@example.com (User Name)”.

              Note:  If  you want to create an alias for more than one address, you must separate
              the addresses with a comma (“,”).

              unalias removes the alias corresponding to the given key or all aliases when “*” is
              used as an argument.

              The  optional -group flag causes the address(es) to be added to or removed from the
              named group.

       alternates [ -group name ... ] regex [ regex ... ]
       unalternates [ -group name ... ] { * | regex ... }

              alternates is used to inform NeoMutt about alternate addresses  where  you  receive
              mail;  you can use regular expressions (regex) to specify alternate addresses. This
              affects NeoMutt's idea about messages from you, and messages addressed to you.

              unalternates can be used to write exceptions to alternates patterns.  To  remove  a
              regular  expression  from  the  alternates  list, use the unalternates command with
              exactly the same regex or use “*” to remove all entries.

              The optional -group flag causes all of the subsequent  regular  expressions  to  be
              added to or removed from the named group.

       alternative_order mime-type[/mime-subtype] [ mime-type[/mime-subtype] ... ]
       unalternative_order { * | mime-type[/mime-subtype] ... }

              alternative_order command permits you to define an order of preference that is used
              by NeoMutt to determine which part of a multipart/alternative body  to  display.  A
              mime-subtype  of  “*”  matches  any multipart/alternative subtype, as does an empty
              mime-subtype.

              unalternative_order removes entries from the ordered list  or  deletes  the  entire
              list when “*” is used as an argument.

       attachments { + | - }disposition mime-type
       unattachments { + | - }disposition mime-type

              You  can  make  your  message index display the number of qualifying attachments in
              each message, or search for messages by attachment count. You  also  can  configure
              what  kinds  of  attachments  qualify  for  this  feature  with the attachments and
              unattachments commands.

              disposition is  the  attachment's  Content-Disposition  type  —  either  inline  or
              attachment. You can abbreviate this to I or A.

              mime-type is the MIME type of the attachment you want the command to affect. A MIME
              type is always of the format major/minor. The  major  part  of  mime-type  must  be
              literal  text  (or  the  special  token  “*”,  but  the minor part may be a regular
              expression. Therefore, “*/.*”  matches any MIME type.

       auto_view mime-type[/mime-subtype] [ mime-type[/mime-subtype] ... ]
       unauto_view { * | mime-type[/mime-subtype] ... }

              This commands permits you to specify that NeoMutt should automatically convert  the
              given  mime-types  to  text/plain when displaying messages. For this to work, there
              must be a mailcap(5) entry for the given mime-type with  the  copiousoutput  option
              set.   A  mime-subtype of “*” matches any multipart/alternative subtype, as does an
              empty mime-subtype.

       bind map[,map ... ] key function

              This command allows you to change the default or  define  additional  key  bindings
              (operation invoked when pressing a key).

              map  specifies in which menu the binding belongs. Multiple maps may be specified by
              separating them with commas (no additional whitespace is  allowed).  The  currently
              defined  maps  are:  alias,  attach, browser, compose, editor, generic, index, mix,
              pager, pgp, postpone, query and smime.

              key is the key (or key sequence) you wish to bind, e.g.  “\Ca”  for  control-A.  In
              addition, key may be specified as a three digit octal number prefixed with a “\” or
              as a symbolic name. The <what-key> function can be  used  to  explore  keycode  and
              symbolic names for the keys on your keyboard.

              function specifies which action to take when key is pressed. Note that the function
              name is to be specified without angle brackets.

              For more information on keys and functions, please consult the NeoMutt manual.

       charset-hook alias charset
       iconv-hook charset local-charset

              charset-hook defines an alias for a character  set.  This  is  useful  to  properly
              display messages which are tagged with a character set name not known to NeoMutt.

              iconv-hook  defines a system-specific name for a character set. This is useful when
              your system's iconv(3) implementation does not understand MIME character set  names
              (such as iso-8859-1), but instead insists on being fed with implementation-specific
              character set names (such as 8859-1). In this  specific  case,  you'd  put  “iconv-
              hook iso-8859-1 8859-1” into your configuration file.

       color object foreground background
       color { header | body } foreground background regex
       color index-object foreground background pattern
       color compose composeobject foreground background
       uncolor { index-object | header | body } { * | pattern ... }

              If  your  terminal supports color, these commands can be used to assign foreground/
              background combinations to certain objects.  The  currently  defined  objects  are:
              attach_headers,  attachment,  body,  bold, error, hdrdefault, header, index, index_
              author, index_collapsed, index_date, index_flags, index_label, index_number, index_
              size,  index_subject,  index_tag,  index_tags, indicator, markers, message, normal,
              progress,  prompt,  quoted,  quotedN,  search,  signature,  status,  tilde,   tree,
              underline.

              If  the  sidebar  is enabled the following objects are also valid: sidebar_divider,
              sidebar_flagged,  sidebar_highlight,   sidebar_indicator,   sidebar_new,   sidebar_
              ordinary, sidebar_spoolfile.

              The  body  and  header  objects allow you to restrict the colorization to a regular
              expression. The index-object permits you to select colored messages by pattern.

              The header and body match regex in the header/body of a message,  index-object  can
              match  pattern  in the message index.  Note that IMAP server-side searches (=b, =B,
              =h) are not supported for color index patterns.

              Valid colors include: default, black, red,  green,  yellow,  blue,  magenta,  cyan,
              white, colorN.

              The  uncolor  command can be applied to the index, header and body objects only. It
              removes entries from the list. You must specify the same pattern specified  in  the
              color  command for it to be removed. The pattern “*” is a special token which means
              to clear the color list of all entries.

              For further information on colorization, please consult the NeoMutt manual.

       crypt-hook regex keyid

              The crypt-hook command provides a method by which you can specify  the  ID  of  the
              public  key to be used when encrypting messages to a certain recipient. The meaning
              of keyid is to be taken broadly: This can be a different email address, a numerical
              keyid,  or  even  just an arbitrary search string. You may use multiple crypt-hooks
              with the same regex; multiple matching crypt-hooks result in the  use  of  multiple
              keyids for a recipient.

       exec function [ function ... ]

              This  command  can  be  used  to  execute any function. Functions are listed in the
              function reference. “exec function” is equivalent to “push <function>”.

       fcc-save-hook pattern mailbox
       fcc-hook pattern mailbox
       save-hook pattern mailbox

              fcc-save-hook is a shortcut, equivalent to doing both a fcc-hook  and  a  save-hook
              with its arguments, including %-expansion on mailbox according to $index_format.

              fcc-hook  is  used  to save outgoing mail in a mailbox other than $record.  NeoMutt
              searches the initial list of message recipients for the first matching pattern  and
              uses  mailbox  as the default “Fcc:” mailbox. If no match is found the message will
              be saved to $record mailbox.

              save-hook is used to override  the  default  mailbox  used  when  saving  messages.
              mailbox will be used as the default if the message matches pattern.

              To  provide  more  flexibility  and  good defaults, NeoMutt applies the expandos of
              $index_format to mailbox after it was  expanded.  See  PATTERNS  section  below  or
              consult  section  “Message  Matching in Hooks” in NeoMutt manual for information on
              the exact format of pattern.

       folder-hook regex command

              When NeoMutt enters a folder which matches regex (or, when regex is preceded by  an
              exclamation mark, does not match regex), the given command is executed.

              When several folder-hooks match a given mail folder, they are executed in the order
              given in the configuration file.

       group [ -group name ... ] { -rx expr ... | -addr address ... }
       ungroup [ -group name ... ] { * | -rx expr ... | -addr address ... }

              group is used to directly add  either  addresses  or  regular  expressions  to  the
              specified  group  or  groups.  The  different  categories of arguments to the group
              command can be in any order. The flags -rx and -addr  specify  what  the  following
              strings  (that  cannot  begin  with  a  hyphen)  should be interpreted as: either a
              regular expression or an email address, respectively.

              ungroup is used to remove addresses or regular expressions from the specified group
              or  groups.  The  syntax  is  similar  to  the  group  command, however the special
              character “*” can be used to empty a group of all of its contents.

              These address groups can also be created implicitly by the alias, lists,  subscribe
              and alternates commands by specifying the optional -group option.

              Once  defined, these address groups can be used in patterns to search for and limit
              the display to messages matching a group.

       hdr_order header [ header ... ]
       unhdr_order { * | header ... }

              With the hdr_order command you can specify an order in which NeoMutt  will  attempt
              to present these headers to you when viewing messages.

              “unhdr_order  *” will clear all previous headers from the order list, thus removing
              the header order effects set by the system-wide startup file.

       ifdef symbol "config-command [ args ... ]"
       ifndef symbol "config-command [ args ... ]"
       finish

              The ifdef feature introduces three new commands to NeoMutt and allow you  to  share
              one  config  file  between  versions  of  NeoMutt  that may have different features
              compiled in.

              Here a symbol can be a $variable, <function>, command or compile-time symbol,  such
              as  “imap”. A list of compile-time symbols can be seen in the output of the command
              “neomutt -v” (in the “Compile options” section).

              finish is particularly useful when combined with ifndef.

       ignore pattern [ pattern ... ]
       unignore { * | pattern ... }

              The ignore command allows you to specify header fields  which  you  don't  normally
              want  to  see  in the pager. You do not need to specify the full header field name.
              For example, “ignore content-” will ignore all header fields that  begin  with  the
              pattern “content-”, “ignore *” will ignore all headers.

              To  remove  a  previously  added token from the list, use the unignore command. For
              example, “unignore *” will remove all tokens from the ignore list.

       lists [ -group name ... ] regex [ regex ... ]
       unlists [ -group name ... ] { * | regex ... }
       subscribe [ -group name ... ] regex [ regex ... ]
       unsubscribe [ -group name ... ] { * | regex ... }

              NeoMutt maintains two lists of mailing list address patterns, a list of  subscribed
              mailing  lists, and a list of known mailing lists. All subscribed mailing lists are
              known. Patterns use regular expressions.

              The lists command adds a mailing list address to the list of known  mailing  lists.
              The  unlists  command removes a mailing list from the lists of known and subscribed
              mailing lists.

              The subscribe command adds a mailing list to the  lists  of  known  and  subscribed
              mailing  lists.  The  unsubscribe  command  removes  it from the list of subscribed
              mailing lists.

              The -group flag adds all of the subsequent regular expressions to the named group.

       macro menu[,menu ... ] key sequence [ description ]

              This command binds the given sequence of keys to the given key in the given menu or
              menus.  For  currently  defined  menus, see bind command above. To specify multiple
              menus, put only a comma between the menus.

              Optionally you can specify a descriptive text after sequence, which is shown in the
              help screens if they contain a description.

       mailboxes mailbox [ mailbox ... ]
       unmailboxes { * | mailbox ... }

              The  mailboxes  specifies  folders which can receive mail and which will be checked
              for new messages. When changing folders, pressing space will cycle through  folders
              with new mail.

              The  unmailboxes  command  is  used  to remove a file name from the list of folders
              which can receive mail. If “*” is specified as the file name, the list is emptied.

       mailto_allow { * | header-field ... }
       unmailto_allow { * | header-field ... }

              As a security measure, NeoMutt will only add  user-approved  header-fields  from  a
              mailto:  URL.  This  is  necessary since NeoMutt will handle certain header-fields,
              such as Attach, in a special way.  The  mailto_allow  and  unmailto_allow  commands
              allow the user to modify the list of approved headers.

              NeoMutt  initializes  the default list to contain only the Subject and Body header-
              fields, which are the only requirement specified by the  mailto:  specification  in
              RFC2368, and the Cc, In-Reply-To, References headers to aid with replies to mailing
              lists.

       mbox-hook regex mailbox

              When NeoMutt changes to a mail folder which matches regex, mailbox will be used  as
              the  “mbox”  folder,  i.e. read messages will be moved to that folder when the mail
              folder is left.

              Note that execution of mbox-hooks is dependent on the $move configuration variable.
              If set to “no” (the default), mbox-hooks will not be executed.

              The first matching mbox-hook applies.

       message-hook pattern command

              Before  NeoMutt  displays  (or  formats for replying or forwarding) a message which
              matches the given pattern (or, when it is preceded by an exclamation mark, does not
              match  the  pattern),  the  given command is executed.  When multiple message-hooks
              match, they are executed in the order in which  they  occur  in  the  configuration
              file.

       mime_lookup mime-type[/mime-subtype] [ mime-type[/mime-subtype] ... ]
       unmime_lookup { * | mime-type[/mime-subtype] ... }

              This  command  permits  you to define a list of “data” MIME content types for which
              NeoMutt will try to determine the actual file type from the file name, and not  use
              a  mailcap(5) entry given for the original MIME type. For instance, you may add the
              application/octet-stream MIME type to this list.

              In addition, the unmime_lookup command may be used to disable this feature for  any
              particular MIME type if it had been set, for example in a global neomuttrc.

       mono object attribute
       mono { header | body } attribute regex
       mono index-object attribute pattern
       unmono { index-object | header | body } { * | pattern ... }

              For terminals which don't support color, you can still assign attributes to objects
              (see color  command  above).  Valid  attributes  include:  none,  bold,  underline,
              reverse, and standout.

       my_hdr string
       unmy_hdr { * | field ... }

              Using  my_hdr,  you  can  define  headers  which  will be added to the messages you
              compose. unmy_hdr will remove the given user-defined headers.

       open-hook regex "shell-command"
       close-hook regex "shell-command"
       append-hook regex "shell-command"

              These commands provide  a  way  to  handle  compressed  folders.  The  given  regex
              specifies  which folders are taken as compressed (e.g.  "\.gz$"). The commands tell
              NeoMutt how to uncompress a folder (open-hook), compress a folder  (close-hook)  or
              append a compressed mail to a compressed folder (append-hook). The shell-command is
              a printf(3) like format string and must contain two placeholders for from (%f)  and
              to (%t) filenames which should be placed inside single-quotes to prevent unintended
              shell expansions. Examples:

                     append-hook '\.gz$' "gzip --stdout '%t' >> '%f'"
                     close-hook '\.gz$' "gzip --stdout '%t' > '%f'"
                     open-hook '\.gz$' "gzip --stdout --decompress '%f' > '%t'"

       push string

              This command adds the named string to the beginning of  the  keyboard  buffer.  The
              string  may  contain  control  characters,  key  names  and function names like the
              sequence string in the macro command.  You  may  use  it  to  automatically  run  a
              sequence of commands at startup, or when entering certain folders.

              For  using  functions,  it's  important to use angle brackets (“<” and “>”) to make
              NeoMutt recognize the  input  as  a  function  name.  Otherwise  it  will  simulate
              individual just keystrokes.

       reply-hook pattern command
       send-hook pattern command
       send2-hook pattern command

              These  commands  can be used to execute arbitrary configuration commands based upon
              recipients of the message. pattern is  used  to  match  the  message,  see  section
              “Message  Matching  in  Hooks”  in  manual  for  details.  command is executed when
              pattern matches.

              reply-hook is matched against the message you  are  replying  to,  instead  of  the
              message  you  are  sending. send-hook is matched against all messages, both new and
              replies. Note, reply-hooks are matched before  the  send-hook,  regardless  of  the
              order specified in the user's configuration file.

              send2-hook  is matched every time a message is changed, either by editing it, or by
              using the compose menu to change its recipients or subject.  send2-hook is executed
              after  send-hook,  and  can,  e.g., be used to set parameters such as the $sendmail
              variable depending on the message's  sender  address.  Note,  send-hooks  are  only
              executed once after getting the initial list of recipients.

       score pattern value
       unscore { * | pattern ... }

              The score command adds value to a message's score if pattern matches it. pattern is
              a string in the format described in the PATTERNS section below. value is a positive
              or  negative  integer.   A  message's  final score is the sum total of all matching
              score entries.

              The unscore command removes score entries from the list. You must specify the  same
              pattern  specified  in the score command for it to be removed. The pattern “*” is a
              special token which means to clear the list of all score entries.

       set { [ no | inv | & | ? ]variable | variable=value } [ ... ]
       unset variable  [ variable ... ]
       reset variable  [ variable ... ]
       toggle variable [ variable ... ]

              These commands are used to set and manipulate configuration variables.

              NeoMutt  knows  four  basic  types  of  variables:  boolean,  number,  string   and
              quadoption.  Boolean variables can be set (true), unset (false), or toggled. Number
              variables can be assigned a positive integer value.

              String variables consist of any number of printable characters and must be enclosed
              in  quotes  if  they  contain spaces or tabs. You may also use the escape sequences
              “\n” and “\t” for newline and tab, respectively.

              Quadoption variables are used to control whether or not to be prompted for  certain
              actions, or to specify a default action. A value of yes will cause the action to be
              carried out automatically as if you had answered “yes” to the question.  Similarly,
              a  value of no will cause the action to be carried out as if you had answered “no”.
              A value of ask-yes will cause a prompt with a default answer of  “yes”  and  ask-no
              will provide a default answer of “no”.

              The  toggle  command  automatically  prepends  the  “inv”  prefix  to all specified
              variables. The  unset  command  automatically  prepends  the  “no”  prefix  to  all
              specified  variables.  If  you use the command set and prefix the variable with “&”
              this has the same behavior as the reset command.

              The reset command resets all given variables to the compile time defaults. With the
              reset  command there exists the special variable all, which allows you to reset all
              variables to their system defaults.

              Using the <enter-command> function, you can  query  the  value  of  a  variable  by
              prefixing the name of the variable with a question mark: ":set ?allow_8bit".

       setenv { ?variable | variable value }
       unsetenv variable

              You  can  alter the environment that NeoMutt passes on to its child processes using
              the setenv and unsetenv operators.

              You can also query current environment values by prefixing a “?” character.

       sidebar_whitelist mailbox [ mailbox ...]
       unsidebar_whitelist { * | mailbox ... }

              The sidebar_whitelist command specifies mailboxes that will always be displayed  in
              the sidebar, even if $sidebar_new_mail_only is set and the mailbox does not contain
              new mail.

              The unsidebar_whitelist command is used to  remove  a  mailbox  from  the  list  of
              whitelisted mailboxes. Use “unsidebar_whitelist *” to remove all mailboxes.

       source filename

              This  command allows the inclusion of initialization commands from other files.  If
              the filename begins with a tilde (“~”), it will be expanded to  the  path  of  your
              home directory.

              If  the  filename ends with a vertical bar (“|”), then filename is considered to be
              an executable program from which to read input, (e.g.  “source ~/bin/myscript|”).

       spam pattern format
       nospam { * | pattern }

              NeoMutt has generalized support for external spam-scoring filters. By defining your
              spam  patterns  with  the spam and nospam commands, you can limit, search, and sort
              your mail based on its spam attributes, as determined by the external  filter.  You
              also can display the spam attributes in your index display using the %H selector in
              the $index_format variable. (Tip: try "%?H?[%H] ?" to display spam tags  only  when
              they are defined for a given message).

              For  further  information on spam-scoring filters, please consult the section “Spam
              Detection” in the NeoMutt manual.

       subjectrx pattern replacement
       unsubjectrx { * | pattern }

              The subjectrx command specifies a regular expression pattern which, if detected  in
              a  message  subject,  causes the subject to be replaced with the replacement value.
              The replacement is subject to substitutions  in  the  same  way  as  for  the  spam
              command:  %L for the text to the left of the match, %R for text to the right of the
              match, and %1 for the first subgroup in the match (etc).  If  you  simply  want  to
              erase the match, set it to “%L%R”.  Any number of subjectrx commands may coexist.

              Note  this  well:  the  replacement value replaces the entire subject, not just the
              match!

              unsubjectrx removes a given subjectrx from the substitution list.  If “*”  is  used
              as the pattern, all substitutions will be removed.

       timeout-hook command
       startup-hook command
       shutdown-hook command

              The  Global  Hooks  feature introduces these hooks to NeoMutt. They are called when
              global events take place in NeoMutt. startup-hook and shutdown-hook are most likely
              to be useful to users of notmuch(1).

              timeout-hook  runs  a  command  periodically when NeoMutt checks for new mail. This
              hook is called every $timeout seconds.

              Before NeoMutt opens the first mailbox when first starting, NeoMutt  will  run  the
              startup-hook for the given command.

              Before NeoMutt is about to exit, and before the mailbox is closed, NeoMutt will run
              the shutdown-hook for the given command.

       unhook { * | hook-type }

              This command permits you to flush hooks you have previously defined. You can either
              remove  all hooks by giving the “*” character as an argument, or you can remove all
              hooks of a specific hook-type by saying something like “unhook send-hook”.

PATTERNS

   Pattern Modifier
       Many of NeoMutt's commands allow you to specify a pattern to match messages  (limit,  tag-
       pattern,  delete-pattern,  the  above  mentioned  hook  commands etc.). The table “Pattern
       modifiers” shows several ways to select messages.

       Special  attention  has  to  be  paid  when  using regular expressions inside of patterns.
       Specifically, NeoMutt's parser for these patterns will strip one level of backslash (“\”),
       which  is  normally  used  for  quoting. If it is your intention to use a backslash in the
       regular expression, you will need to use two backslashes (“\\”) instead.

       You can force NeoMutt to treat EXPR as a simple STRING instead of a regular expression  by
       using “=” instead of “~” in the pattern name. For example, “=b *.*” will find all messages
       that contain the literal STRING*.*”. Simple substring matches  are  less  powerful  than
       regular  expressions  but  can  be  considerably  faster. This is especially true for IMAP
       folders, because substring matches can be performed on the server instead of  by  fetching
       every  message. IMAP treats “=h” specially: it must be of the form “Header: substring” and
       will not partially match header names. The substring part may be  omitted  if  you  simply
       wish to find messages containing a particular header without regard to its value.

       Patterns matching lists of addresses (notably c, C, p, P and t) match if there is at least
       one match in the whole list. If you want to make sure  that  all  elements  of  that  list
       match, you need to prefix your pattern with “^”.

       This example matches all mails which only has recipients from Germany.

              Matching all addresses in address lists: ^~C \.de$

       You  can  restrict  address pattern matching to aliases that you have defined with the “@”
       modifier. This example matches messages whose recipients are all from Germany and who  are
       known to your alias list.

              Matching restricted to aliases: ^@~C \.de$

       To match any defined alias, use a regular expression that matches any string. This example
       matches messages whose senders are known aliases.

              Matching any defined alias: @~f .

   Nesting and Boolean Operators
       Logical AND is performed by specifying more than one criterion.

              For example: ~t work ~f elkins

       would select messages which contain the word “work” in the list  of  recipients  and  that
       have the word “elkins” in the “From:” header field.

       NeoMutt also recognizes the following operators to create more complex search patterns:

              · “!” — logical NOT operator
              · “|” — logical OR operator
              · “()” — logical grouping operator

       Here  is  an  example  illustrating a complex search pattern. This pattern will select all
       messages which do not contain “work” in the “To:”  or  “Cc:”  field  and  which  are  from
       “elkins”.

              Using boolean operators in patterns: !(~t work|~c work) ~f elkins

       Here  is  an  example  using  white  space in the regular expression (note the “'” and “"”
       delimiters). For this to match, the mail's subject must match the “^Junk +From  +Me$”  and
       it must be from either “Jim +Somebody” or “Ed +SomeoneElse”:

              Quoting regex: '~s "^Junk +From +Me$" ~f ("Jim +Somebody"|"Ed +SomeoneElse")'

       Note:  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 NeoMutt's pattern language.

              For example: ~f "user@(home\.org|work\.com)"

       Without  the  quotes,  the  parenthesis  wouldn't end. This would be separated to two OR'd
       patterns: ~f user@(home\.org and work\.com). They are never what you want.

   Searching by Date
       NeoMutt supports two types of dates, absolute and relative for the “~d” and “~r” pattern.

       Absolute Dates
       Dates must be in dd[/mm[/[CC]YY]] format (day, month, century and year — all  parts,  with
       the  exception of day, are optional, defaulting to the current month and year). An example
       of a valid range of dates is:

              Limit to messages matching: ~d 20/1/95-31/10

       When given a two-digit year, NeoMutt will interpret values less than “70” as lying in  the
       21st  century  (i.e.,  “38” means 2038 and not 1938, and “00” is interpreted as 2000), and
       values greater than or equal to “70” as lying in the 20th century.

       If you omit the MINimum (first) date, and just specify -dd/mm/YY, all messages before  the
       given date will be selected. If you omit the MAXimum (second) date, and specify dd/mm/YY-,
       all messages after the given date will be selected. If you specify a single date  with  no
       dash (“-”), only messages sent/received on the given date will be selected.

       You  can  add  error  margins  to  absolute dates. An error margin is a sign (“+” or “-”),
       followed by a digit, followed by one of the units  in  table  “Date  units”  below.  As  a
       special  case,  you can replace the sign by a “*” character, which is equivalent to giving
       identical plus and minus error margins.

                             ┌─────────────┬──────┬───────┬────────┬───────┐
                             │ Date Unit   │  d   │   w   │   m    │   y   │
                             ├─────────────┼──────┼───────┼────────┼───────┤
                             │ Description │ Days │ Weeks │ Months │ Years │
                             └─────────────┴──────┴───────┴────────┴───────┘

       Example: To select any messages two weeks around January 15, 2001, you'd use the following
       pattern:

              Limit to messages matching: ~d 15/1/2001*2w

       It is possible to give multiple error margins:

              which cumulate: ~d 1/1/2001-1w+2w*3d

       Relative Dates
       This type of date is relative to the current date, and may be specified as:

              · “<offset” for messages newer than offset units
              · “=offset” for messages exactly offset units old
              · “>offset” for messages older than offset units

       offset is specified as a positive number with one of the units from table “Date units”.

       Example: To select messages less than 1 month old, you would use:

              Limit to messages matching: ~d <1m

       Note: All dates used when searching are relative to the local time  zone,  so  unless  you
       change  the  setting of your $index_format to include a “%[...]” format, these are not the
       dates shown in the main index.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

       abort_noattach
              Type: quadoption
              Default: no

              If set to yes, when composing messages containing the regular expression  specified
              by $abort_noattach_regex and no attachments are given, composition will be aborted.
              If set to no, composing messages as such will never be aborted.

              Example:

              set abort_noattach_regex = "\\<attach(|ed|ments?)\\>"

       abort_noattach_regex
              Type: regular expression
              Default: "\<(attach|attached|attachments?)\>"

              Specifies a regular expression to  match  against  the  body  of  the  message,  to
              determine  if an attachment was mentioned but mistakenly forgotten.  If it matches,
              $abort_noattach will be consulted to determine if message sending will be aborted.

              Like other regular expressions in NeoMutt, the search  is  case  sensitive  if  the
              pattern contains at least one upper case letter, and case insensitive otherwise.

       abort_nosubject
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              If  set  to  yes,  when  composing  messages and no subject is given at the subject
              prompt, composition will be aborted.  If set to  no,  composing  messages  with  no
              subject given at the subject prompt will never be aborted.

       abort_unmodified
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              If  set to yes, composition will automatically abort after editing the message body
              if no changes are made to the file (this check only happens after the first edit of
              the file).  When set to no, composition will never be aborted.

       alias_file
              Type: path
              Default: "~/.neomuttrc"

              The  default  file in which to save aliases created by the <create-alias> function.
              Entries added  to  this  file  are  encoded  in  the  character  set  specified  by
              $config_charset if it is set or the current character set otherwise.

              Note:  NeoMutt will not automatically source this file; you must explicitly use the
              “source” command for it to be executed in case this option points  to  a  dedicated
              alias file.

              The default for this option is the currently used neomuttrc file, or “~/.neomuttrc”
              if no user neomuttrc was found.

       alias_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%4n %2f %t %-10a   %r"

              Specifies the format of the data displayed for the  “alias”  menu.   The  following
              printf(3)-style sequences are available:
              %a     Alias name
              %f     Flags - currently, a “d” for an alias marked for deletion
              %n     Index number
              %r     Address which alias expands to
              %t     Character which indicates if the alias is tagged for inclusion

       allow_8bit
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls whether 8-bit data is converted to 7-bit using either Quoted- Printable or
              Base64 encoding when sending mail.

       allow_ansi
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Controls whether ANSI color  codes  in  messages  (and  color  tags  in  rich  text
              messages)  are to be interpreted.  Messages containing these codes are rare, but if
              this option is set, their text will be colored  accordingly.  Note  that  this  may
              override  your  color choices, and even present a security problem, since a message
              could include a line like

              [-- PGP output follows ...

              and give it the same color as your attachment color (see also $crypt_timestamp).

       arrow_cursor
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, an arrow (“->”) will be used to  indicate  the  current  entry  in  menus
              instead  of  highlighting the whole line.  On slow network or modem links this will
              make response faster because there is less that has to be  redrawn  on  the  screen
              when moving to the next or previous entries in the menu.

       ascii_chars
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set,  NeoMutt  will  use  plain  ASCII  characters  when  displaying thread and
              attachment trees, instead of the default ACS characters.

       ask_follow_up
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, NeoMutt will prompt you for follow-up groups before editing the body of  an
              outgoing message.

       ask_x_comment_to
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set,  NeoMutt will prompt you for x-comment-to field before editing the body of
              an outgoing message.

       askbcc
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, NeoMutt will prompt  you  for  blind-carbon-copy  (Bcc)  recipients  before
              editing an outgoing message.

       askcc
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set, NeoMutt will prompt you for carbon-copy (Cc) recipients before editing the
              body of an outgoing message.

       assumed_charset
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This variable is a colon-separated list of character encoding schemes for  messages
              without  character  encoding  indication.   Header  field  values  and message body
              content without character encoding  indication  would  be  assumed  that  they  are
              written  in  one  of this list.  By default, all the header fields and message body
              without any charset indication are assumed to be in “us-ascii”.

              For example, Japanese users might prefer this:

              set assumed_charset="iso-2022-jp:euc-jp:shift_jis:utf-8"

              However, only the first content is valid for the message body.

       attach_charset
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This variable is a colon-separated list of character encoding schemes for text file
              attachments. NeoMutt uses this setting to guess which encoding files being attached
              are encoded in to convert them to a proper character set given in $send_charset.

              If unset, the value of $charset will be used instead.  For example,  the  following
              configuration would work for Japanese text handling:

              set attach_charset="iso-2022-jp:euc-jp:shift_jis:utf-8"

              Note:  for  Japanese  users,  “iso-2022-*”  must be put at the head of the value as
              shown above if included.

       attach_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%u%D%I %t%4n %T%.40d%> [%.7m/%.10M, %.6e%?C?, %C?, %s] "

              This variable describes  the  format  of  the  “attachment”  menu.   The  following
              printf(3)-style sequences are understood:
              %C     Charset
              %c     Requires charset conversion (“n” or “c”)
              %D     Deleted flag
              %d     Description (if none, falls back to %F)
              %e     MIME content-transfer-encoding
              %f     Filename
              %F     Filename in content-disposition header (if none, falls back to %f)
              %I     Disposition (“I” for inline, “A” for attachment)
              %m     Major MIME type
              %M     MIME subtype
              %n     Attachment number
              %Q     “Q”, if MIME part qualifies for attachment counting
              %s     Size
              %T     Graphic tree characters
              %t     Tagged flag
              %u     Unlink (=to delete) flag
              %X     Number  of  qualifying  MIME parts in this part and its children (please see
                     the “attachments” section for possible speed effects)
              %>X    Right justify the rest of the string and pad with character “X”
              %|X    Pad to the end of the line with character “X”
              %*X    Soft-fill with character “X” as pad

              For an explanation of “soft-fill”, see the $index_format documentation.

       attach_sep
              Type: string
              Default: "\n"

              The separator to add between attachments when operating (saving, printing,  piping,
              etc) on a list of tagged attachments.

       attach_split
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If this variable is unset, when operating (saving, printing, piping, etc) on a list
              of tagged attachments, NeoMutt will concatenate the attachments and will operate on
              them  as  a  single  attachment.  The  $attach_sep  separator  is  added after each
              attachment. When set, NeoMutt will operate on the attachments one by one.

       attribution
              Type: string
              Default: "On %d, %n wrote:"

              This is the string that will precede a message which has been included in a  reply.
              For  a  full  listing  of  defined  printf(3)-like  sequences  see  the  section on
              $index_format.

       attribution_locale
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              The locale used by strftime(3) to format dates in the  attribution  string.   Legal
              values  are  the  strings  your  system accepts for the locale environment variable
              $LC_TIME.

              This variable is to allow the attribution date format to be customized by recipient
              or  folder  using  hooks.  By default, NeoMutt will use your locale environment, so
              there is no need to set this except to override that default.

       auto_tag
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, functions in the index menu which affect a message will be applied to all
              tagged  messages  (if  there  are  any).   When  unset,  you  must  first  use  the
              <tag-prefix> function (bound to “;” by default) to make the next function apply  to
              all tagged messages.

       autoedit
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set  along  with  $edit_headers,  NeoMutt  will  skip  the  initial send-menu
              (prompting for subject and recipients) and allow you to immediately  begin  editing
              the  body  of  your  message.   The  send-menu  may still be accessed once you have
              finished editing the body of your message.

              Note: when this option is set,  you  cannot  use  send-hooks  that  depend  on  the
              recipients  when  composing  a  new  (non-reply)  message,  as  the initial list of
              recipients is empty.

              Also see $fast_reply.

       beep
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When this variable is set, NeoMutt will beep when an error occurs.

       beep_new
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When this variable is set, NeoMutt will beep whenever it prints a message notifying
              you of new mail.  This is independent of the setting of the $beep variable.

       bounce
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              Controls whether you will be asked to confirm bouncing messages.  If set to yes you
              don't get asked if you want to bounce a message. Setting this variable to no is not
              generally  useful,  and  thus  not  recommended,  because  you are unable to bounce
              messages.

       bounce_delivered
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When this variable is set, NeoMutt will include Delivered-To headers when  bouncing
              messages.  Postfix users may wish to unset this variable.

              Note: On Debian systems, this option is unset by default in /etc/Muttrc.

       braille_friendly
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  this  variable  is set, NeoMutt will place the cursor at the beginning of the
              current line in menus, even when the $arrow_cursor variable  is  unset,  making  it
              easier  for blind persons using Braille displays to follow these menus.  The option
              is unset by default because many visual terminals don't permit  making  the  cursor
              invisible.

       browser_abbreviate_mailboxes
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  this  variable  is  set,  mutt  will  abbreviate mailbox names in the browser
              mailbox list, using '~' and '=' shortcuts.

              The default "alpha" setting  of  $sort_browser  uses  locale-based  sorting  (using
              strcoll(3)),  which  ignores  some  punctuation.   This can lead to some situations
              where the order doesn't make intuitive sense.  In those cases, it may be  desirable
              to unset this variable.

       catchup_newsgroup
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              If  this  variable is set, NeoMutt will mark all articles in newsgroup as read when
              you quit the newsgroup (catchup newsgroup).

       certificate_file
              Type: path
              Default: "~/.mutt_certificates"

              This variable specifies the file where the certificates you trust are  saved.  When
              an  unknown  certificate  is encountered, you are asked if you accept it or not. If
              you accept it, the  certificate  can  also  be  saved  in  this  file  and  further
              connections are automatically accepted.

              You can also manually add CA certificates in this file. Any server certificate that
              is signed with one of these CA certificates is also automatically accepted.

              Example:

              set certificate_file=~/.neomutt/certificates

       change_folder_next
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When this variable is set, the <change-folder>  function  mailbox  suggestion  will
              start at the next folder in your “mailboxes” list, instead of starting at the first
              folder in the list.

       charset
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Character set your terminal uses to display and enter textual data.  It is also the
              fallback for $send_charset.

              Upon  startup NeoMutt tries to derive this value from environment variables such as
              $LC_CTYPE or $LANG.

              Note: It should only be set in case NeoMutt isn't able to determine  the  character
              set used correctly.

       check_mbox_size
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  this  variable is set, NeoMutt will use file size attribute instead of access
              time when checking for new mail in mbox and mmdf folders.

              This variable is unset by  default  and  should  only  be  enabled  when  new  mail
              detection for these folder types is unreliable or doesn't work.

              Note  that  enabling  this variable should happen before any “mailboxes” directives
              occur in configuration files regarding mbox or mmdf folders because  NeoMutt  needs
              to  determine  the  initial  new mail status of such a mailbox by performing a fast
              mailbox scan when it is defined.  Afterwards the new mail status is tracked by file
              size changes.

       check_new
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Note: this option only affects maildir and MH style mailboxes.

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  check  for new mail delivered while the mailbox is open.
              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.  If this variable is unset, no check  for  new  mail  is  performed
              while the mailbox is open.

       collapse_all
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, NeoMutt will collapse all threads when entering a folder.

       collapse_flagged
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When unset, NeoMutt will not collapse a thread if it contains any flagged messages.

       collapse_unread
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When unset, NeoMutt will not collapse a thread if it contains any unread messages.

       compose_format
              Type: string
              Default: "-- NeoMutt: Compose  [Approx. msg size: %l   Atts: %a]%>-"

              Controls  the  format  of  the  status  line displayed in the “compose” menu.  This
              string is similar  to  $status_format,  but  has  its  own  set  of  printf(3)-like
              sequences:
              %a     Total number of attachments
              %h     Local hostname
              %l     Approximate size (in bytes) of the current message
              %v     NeoMutt version string

              See  the  text  describing the $status_format option for more information on how to
              set $compose_format.

       config_charset
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              When defined, NeoMutt will recode commands in rc files from this  encoding  to  the
              current  character  set as specified by $charset and aliases written to $alias_file
              from the current character set.

              Please  note  that  if  setting  $charset  it   must   be   done   before   setting
              $config_charset.

              Recoding  should  be  avoided as it may render unconvertable characters as question
              marks  which  can  lead  to  undesired  side  effects  (for  example   in   regular
              expressions).

       confirmappend
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  prompt  for  confirmation  when appending messages to an
              existing mailbox.

       confirmcreate
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, NeoMutt will prompt for confirmation when saving messages  to  a  mailbox
              which does not yet exist before creating it.

       connect_timeout
              Type: number
              Default: 30

              Causes  NeoMutt  to timeout a network connection (for IMAP, POP or SMTP) after this
              many seconds if the connection is not able to be  established.   A  negative  value
              causes NeoMutt to wait indefinitely for the connection attempt to succeed.

       content_type
              Type: string
              Default: "text/plain"

              Sets the default Content-Type for the body of newly composed messages.

       copy
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              This  variable  controls  whether  or  not copies of your outgoing messages will be
              saved for later references.  Also see $record, $save_name,  $force_name  and  “fcc-
              hook”.

       crypt_autoencrypt
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Setting  this variable will cause NeoMutt to always attempt to PGP encrypt outgoing
              messages.  This is probably only useful in connection to the  “send-hook”  command.
              It  can  be  overridden  by use of the pgp menu, when encryption is not required or
              signing is requested as well.  If $smime_is_default is set, then  OpenSSL  is  used
              instead  to  create  S/MIME  messages  and settings can be overridden by use of the
              smime menu instead.  (Crypto only)

       crypt_autopgp
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This variable  controls  whether  or  not  NeoMutt  may  automatically  enable  PGP
              encryption/signing for messages.  See also $crypt_autoencrypt, $crypt_replyencrypt,
              $crypt_autosign, $crypt_replysign and $smime_is_default.

       crypt_autosign
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Setting this variable will cause NeoMutt to  always  attempt  to  cryptographically
              sign  outgoing  messages.   This  can  be  overridden  by use of the pgp menu, when
              signing is not required or encryption is requested as well. If $smime_is_default is
              set,  then  OpenSSL  is  used instead to create S/MIME messages and settings can be
              overridden by use of the smime menu instead of the pgp menu.  (Crypto only)

       crypt_autosmime
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This variable controls whether or  not  NeoMutt  may  automatically  enable  S/MIME
              encryption/signing  for messages. See also $crypt_autoencrypt, $crypt_replyencrypt,
              $crypt_autosign, $crypt_replysign and $smime_is_default.

       crypt_confirmhook
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If set, then you  will  be  prompted  for  confirmation  of  keys  when  using  the
              crypt-hook command.  If unset, no such confirmation prompt will be presented.  This
              is generally considered unsafe, especially where typos are concerned.

       crypt_opportunistic_encrypt
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Setting this variable will  cause  NeoMutt  to  automatically  enable  and  disable
              encryption, based on whether all message recipient keys can be located by NeoMutt.

              When  this  option is enabled, NeoMutt will enable/disable encryption each time the
              TO, CC, and BCC lists are edited.  If $edit_headers is set, NeoMutt will also do so
              each time the message is edited.

              While this is set, encryption can't be manually enabled/disabled.  The pgp or smime
              menus provide a selection to  temporarily  disable  this  option  for  the  current
              message.

              If  $crypt_autoencrypt or $crypt_replyencrypt enable encryption for a message, this
              option will be disabled for that message.  It can be manually re-enabled in the pgp
              or smime menus.  (Crypto only)

       crypt_replyencrypt
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  automatically  PGP  or  OpenSSL  encrypt  replies  to  messages which are
              encrypted.  (Crypto only)

       crypt_replysign
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, automatically PGP or OpenSSL sign replies to messages which are signed.

              Note: this does not work on messages that are encrypted and signed!  (Crypto only)

       crypt_replysignencrypted
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, automatically PGP or OpenSSL sign replies to messages which are  encrypted.
              This  makes sense in combination with $crypt_replyencrypt, because it allows you to
              sign all messages which are automatically encrypted.  This works around the problem
              noted  in  $crypt_replysign,  that  NeoMutt  is  not  able  to  find out whether an
              encrypted message is also signed.  (Crypto only)

       crypt_timestamp
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If set, NeoMutt will include a time stamp in the lines surrounding  PGP  or  S/MIME
              output,  so spoofing such lines is more difficult.  If you are using colors to mark
              these lines, and rely on these, you may unset this setting.  (Crypto only)

       crypt_use_gpgme
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This variable controls the use of the GPGME-enabled crypto backends.  If it is  set
              and NeoMutt was built with gpgme support, the gpgme code for S/MIME and PGP will be
              used instead of the classic code.  Note  that  you  need  to  set  this  option  in
              .neomuttrc; it won't have any effect when used interactively.

              Note   that   the   GPGME  backend  does  not  support  creating  old-style  inline
              (traditional) PGP encrypted or signed messages (see $pgp_autoinline).

       crypt_use_pka
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Controls whether NeoMutt uses PKA (see http://www.g10code.de/docs/pka-intro.de.pdf)
              during signature verification (only supported by the GPGME backend).

       crypt_verify_sig
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              If  “yes”,  always  attempt  to  verify  PGP or S/MIME signatures.  If “ask-*”, ask
              whether or not  to  verify  the  signature.   If  “no”,  never  attempt  to  verify
              cryptographic signatures.  (Crypto only)

       date_format
              Type: string
              Default: "!%a, %b %d, %Y at %I:%M:%S%p %Z"

              This  variable  controls  the  format  of  the date printed by the “%d” sequence in
              $index_format.  This is passed to the strftime(3) function to process the date, see
              the man page for the proper syntax.

              Unless  the  first  character in the string is a bang (“!”), the month and week day
              names are expanded according to the locale.  If the first character in  the  string
              is  a  bang, the bang is discarded, and the month and week day names in the rest of
              the string are expanded in the C locale (that is in US English).

       debug_file
              Type: path
              Default: "~/.neomuttdebug"

              Debug  logging  is  controlled  by  the  variables  $debug_file  and  $debug_level.
              $debug_file  specifies  the root of the filename.  NeoMutt will add “0” to the end.
              Each time NeoMutt is run with logging  enabled,  the  log  files  are  rotated.   A
              maximum of five log files are kept, numbered 0 (most recent) to 4 (oldest).

              This option can be enabled on the command line, “neomutt -l mylog”

              See also: $debug_level

       debug_level
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              Debug logging is controlled by the variables $debug_file and $debug_level.

              The  debug  level  controls  how much information is saved to the log file.  If you
              have a problem with NeoMutt, then enabling logging may help find the cause.  Levels
              1-3  will  usually provide enough information for writing a bug report.  Levels 4,5
              will be extremely verbose.

              Warning: Logging at high levels may save private information to the file.

              This option can be enabled on the command line, “neomutt -d 2”

              See also: $debug_file

       default_hook
              Type: string
              Default: "~f %s !~P | (~P ~C %s)"

              This variable controls how “message-hook”, “reply-hook”, “send-hook”, “send2-hook”,
              “save-hook”,  and  “fcc-hook” will be interpreted if they are specified with only a
              simple regex, instead of a matching pattern.  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.

              The default value matches if the message is either from a user matching the regular
              expression  given,  or if it is from you (if the from address matches “alternates”)
              and is to or cc'ed to a user matching the given regular expression.

       delete
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              Controls whether or not messages are really deleted when closing or synchronizing a
              mailbox.   If set to yes, messages marked for deleting will automatically be purged
              without prompting.  If set to no, messages marked for deletion will be kept in  the
              mailbox.

       delete_untag
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  this option is set, NeoMutt will untag messages when marking them for deletion.
              This applies when you either explicitly delete a message, or when you  save  it  to
              another folder.

       digest_collapse
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  this  option  is  set,  NeoMutt's  received-attachments  menu will not show the
              subparts of individual messages in a  multipart/digest.   To  see  these  subparts,
              press “v” on that menu.

       display_filter
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              When set, specifies a command used to filter messages.  When a message is viewed it
              is passed as standard input to $display_filter, and the filtered  message  is  read
              from the standard output.

              When  preparing  the  message, NeoMutt inserts some escape sequences into the text.
              They are of the form: <esc>]9;XXX<bel> where "XXX" is a random 64-bit number.

              If these escape sequences interfere with your filter, they can be removed  using  a
              tool like ansifilter or sed 's/^\x1b]9;[0-9]\+\x7//'

              If  they  are  removed, then PGP and MIME headers will no longer be coloured.  This
              can be fixed by adding this to your config: color body magenta  default  '^\[--  .*
              --\]$'.

       dsn_notify
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This  variable  sets  the  request  for  when notification is returned.  The string
              consists of a comma separated list (no spaces!) of one or more  of  the  following:
              never,   to  never  request  notification,  failure,  to  request  notification  on
              transmission failure, delay, to be notified  of  message  delays,  success,  to  be
              notified of successful transmission.

              Example:

              set dsn_notify="failure,delay"

              Note:  when using $sendmail for delivery, you should not enable this unless you are
              either using Sendmail 8.8.x or greater or a MTA providing a  sendmail(1)-compatible
              interface  supporting  the  -N  option  for  DSN. For SMTP delivery, DSN support is
              auto-detected so that it depends on the server whether DSN will be used or not.

       dsn_return
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This variable controls how much of your message is returned in  DSN  messages.   It
              may  be set to either hdrs to return just the message header, or full to return the
              full message.

              Example:

              set dsn_return=hdrs

              Note: when using $sendmail for delivery, you should not enable this unless you  are
              either  using Sendmail 8.8.x or greater or a MTA providing a sendmail(1)-compatible
              interface supporting the -R option for DSN.  For  SMTP  delivery,  DSN  support  is
              auto-detected so that it depends on the server whether DSN will be used or not.

       duplicate_threads
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This  variable  controls  whether  NeoMutt,  when  $sort is set to threads, threads
              messages with the same Message-Id together.  If it is set, it will indicate that it
              thinks they are duplicates of each other with an equals sign in the thread tree.

       edit_headers
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This  option allows you to edit the header of your outgoing messages along with the
              body of your message.

              Although the compose menu may have localized header labels, the  labels  passed  to
              your  editor  will be standard RFC2822 headers, (e.g. To:, Cc:, Subject:).  Headers
              added in your editor must also be RFC2822 headers, or one  of  the  pseudo  headers
              listed in “edit-header”.  NeoMutt will not understand localized header labels, just
              as it would not when parsing an actual email.

              Note that changes made to  the  References:  and  Date:  headers  are  ignored  for
              interoperability reasons.

       editor
              Type: command
              Default: "vi"

              This  variable specifies which editor is used by NeoMutt.  It defaults to the value
              of  the  $VISUAL,  or   $EDITOR,   environment   variable,   or   to   the   string
              “/usr/bin/editor” if neither of those are set.

              The  $editor  string may contain a %s escape, which will be replaced by the name of
              the file to be edited.  If the %s escape does not appear in $editor,  a  space  and
              the name to be edited are appended.

              The resulting string is then executed by running

              sh -c 'string'

              where string is the expansion of $editor described above.

       empty_subject
              Type: string
              Default: "Re: your mail"

              This  variable  specifies  the subject to be used when replying to an email with an
              empty subject.  It defaults to "Re: your mail".

       encode_from
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, NeoMutt will quoted-printable  encode  messages  when  they  contain  the
              string  “From  ”  (note  the  trailing  space) in the beginning of a line.  This is
              useful to avoid the tampering certain mail delivery and transport agents tend to do
              with  messages  (in  order to prevent tools from misinterpreting the line as a mbox
              message separator).

       envelope_from_address
              Type: e-mail address
              Default: ""

              Manually sets the envelope sender for outgoing messages.  This value is ignored  if
              $use_envelope_from is unset.

       escape
              Type: string
              Default: "~"

              Escape character to use for functions in the built-in editor.

       fast_reply
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  the initial prompt for recipients and subject are skipped when replying
              to messages, and  the  initial  prompt  for  subject  is  skipped  when  forwarding
              messages.

              Note: this variable has no effect when the $autoedit variable is set.

       fcc_attach
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              This  variable  controls  whether or not attachments on outgoing messages are saved
              along with the main body of your message.

       fcc_clear
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When this variable is set, FCCs will be stored unencrypted and unsigned, even  when
              the actual message is encrypted and/or signed.  (PGP only)

       flag_chars
              Type: string
              Default: "*!DdrONon- "

              Controls the characters used in several flags.
              Character
                     Default Description
              1      * The mail is tagged.
              2      !  The mail is flagged as important.
              3      D The mail is marked for deletion.
              4      d The mail has attachments marked for deletion.
              5      r The mail has been replied to.
              6      O The mail is Old (Unread but seen).
              7      N The mail is New (Unread but not seen).
              8      o The mail thread is Old (Unread but seen).
              9      n The mail thread is New (Unread but not seen).
              10     - The mail is read - %S expando.
              11     <space> The mail is read - %Z expando.

       flag_safe
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, flagged messages cannot be deleted.

       folder
              Type: path
              Default: "~/Mail"

              Specifies the default location of your mailboxes.  A “+” or “=” at the beginning of
              a pathname will be expanded to the value of this variable.  Note that if you change
              this  variable  (from  the default) value you need to make sure that the assignment
              occurs before you use “+” or “=” for any  other  variables  since  expansion  takes
              place when handling the “mailboxes” command.

       folder_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%2C %t %N %F %2l %-8.8u %-8.8g %8s %d %f"

              This  variable  allows  you  to customize the file browser display to your personal
              taste.   This  string  is  similar  to  $index_format,  but  has  its  own  set  of
              printf(3)-like sequences:
              %C     Current file number
              %d     Date/time folder was last modified
              %D     Date/time folder was last modified using $date_format.
              %f     Filename  (“/” is appended to directory names, “@” to symbolic links and “*”
                     to executable files)
              %F     File permissions
              %g     Group name (or numeric gid, if missing)
              %l     Number of hard links
              %m     Number of messages in the mailbox *
              %n     Number of unread messages in the mailbox *
              %N     “N” if mailbox has new mail, blank otherwise
              %s     Size in bytes
              %t     “*” if the file is tagged, blank otherwise
              %u     Owner name (or numeric uid, if missing)
              %>X    Right justify the rest of the string and pad with character “X”
              %|X    Pad to the end of the line with character “X”
              %*X    Soft-fill with character “X” as pad

              For an explanation of “soft-fill”, see the $index_format documentation.

              * = can be optionally printed if nonzero

              %m, %n, and %N only work for monitored mailboxes.  %m requires $mail_check_stats to
              be set.  %n requires $mail_check_stats to be set (except for IMAP mailboxes).

       followup_to
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls  whether  or  not  the  “Mail-Followup-To:” header field is generated when
              sending mail.  When set, NeoMutt will generate this field when you are replying  to
              a known mailing list, specified with the “subscribe” or “lists” commands.

              This field has two purposes.  First, preventing you from receiving duplicate copies
              of replies to messages which you send to mailing lists, and second,  ensuring  that
              you do get a reply separately for any messages sent to known lists to which you are
              not subscribed.

              The header will contain only the list's address for subscribed lists, and both  the
              list  address  and  your  own  email  address for unsubscribed lists.  Without this
              header, a group reply to your message sent to a subscribed list  will  be  sent  to
              both the list and your address, resulting in two copies of the same email for you.

       followup_to_poster
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              If  this variable is set and the keyword "poster" is present in Followup-To header,
              follow-up to newsgroup function is not permitted.  The message will  be  mailed  to
              the submitter of the message via mail.

       force_name
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This  variable  is  similar to $save_name, except that NeoMutt will store a copy of
              your outgoing message by the username of the address you are  sending  to  even  if
              that mailbox does not exist.

              Also see the $record variable.

       forward_attribution_intro
              Type: string
              Default: "----- Forwarded message from %f -----"

              This is the string that will precede a message which has been forwarded in the main
              body of a message (when $mime_forward is unset).  For a  full  listing  of  defined
              printf(3)-like   sequences   see   the   section   on   $index_format.    See  also
              $attribution_locale.

       forward_attribution_trailer
              Type: string
              Default: "----- End forwarded message -----"

              This is the string that will follow a message which has been forwarded in the  main
              body  of  a  message  (when $mime_forward is unset).  For a full listing of defined
              printf(3)-like  sequences   see   the   section   on   $index_format.    See   also
              $attribution_locale.

       forward_decode
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls  the  decoding  of complex MIME messages into text/plain when forwarding a
              message.  The message header is also RFC2047 decoded.  This variable is only  used,
              if $mime_forward is unset, otherwise $mime_forward_decode is used instead.

       forward_decrypt
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls  the  handling of encrypted messages when forwarding a message.  When set,
              the outer layer of encryption is stripped off.   This  variable  is  only  used  if
              $mime_forward is set and $mime_forward_decode is unset.  (PGP only)

       forward_edit
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              This  quadoption  controls  whether  or not the user is automatically placed in the
              editor when forwarding messages.  For those who always  want  to  forward  with  no
              modification, use a setting of “no”.

       forward_format
              Type: string
              Default: "[%a: %s]"

              This  variable controls the default subject when forwarding a message.  It uses the
              same format sequences as the $index_format variable.

       forward_quote
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, forwarded messages included  in  the  main  body  of  the  message  (when
              $mime_forward is unset) will be quoted using $indent_string.

       forward_references
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  forwarded  messages set the “In-Reply-To:” and “References:” headers in
              the same way as normal replies would. Hence the forwarded message becomes  part  of
              the original thread instead of starting a new one.

       from
              Type: e-mail address
              Default: ""

              When  set,  this  variable contains a default “from” address.  It can be overridden
              using “my_hdr” (including from a “send-hook”) and $reverse_name.  This variable  is
              ignored if $use_from is unset.

              If not specified, then it may be read from the environment variable $EMAIL.

       from_chars
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Controls the character used to prefix the %F and %L fields in the index.
              Character
                     Description
              1      Mail  is written by you and has a To address, or has a known mailing list in
                     the To address.
              2      Mail is written by you and has a Cc address, or has a known mailing list  in
                     the Cc address.
              3      Mail is written by you and has a Bcc address.
              4      All remaining cases.

              If  this  is empty or unset (default), the traditional long "To ", "Cc " and "Bcc "
              prefixes are used.  If set but too short to include a character  for  a  particular
              case,  a single space will be prepended to the field.  To prevent any prefix at all
              from being added in a particular case, use the special value CR (aka  ^M)  for  the
              corresponding character.

              This  slightly  odd  interface  is  necessitated  by  NeoMutt's  handling of string
              variables; one cannot tell a variable that is unset from one that  is  set  to  the
              empty string.

       gecos_mask
              Type: regular expression
              Default: "^[^,]*"

              A  regular  expression used by NeoMutt to parse the GECOS field of a password entry
              when expanding the alias.  The default value will return the string up to the first
              “,”  encountered.   If the GECOS field contains a string like “lastname, firstname”
              then you should set it to “.*”.

              This can be useful if you see the following behavior: you address an e-mail to user
              ID  “stevef”  whose  full name is “Steve Franklin”.  If NeoMutt expands “stevef” to
              “"Franklin" stevef@foo.bar” then you  should  set  the  $gecos_mask  to  a  regular
              expression  that  will  match  the  whole name so NeoMutt will expand “Franklin” to
              “Franklin, Steve”.

       group_index_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%4C %M%N %5s  %-45.45f %d"

              This variable allows you  to  customize  the  newsgroup  browser  display  to  your
              personal  taste.   This string is similar to “index_format”, but has its own set of
              printf()-like sequences:
              %C     Current newsgroup number
              %d     Description of newsgroup (becomes from server)
              %f     Newsgroup name
              %M     - if newsgroup not allowed for direct post (moderated for example)
              %N     N if newsgroup is new, u if unsubscribed, blank otherwise
              %n     Number of new articles in newsgroup
              %s     Number of unread articles in newsgroup
              %>X    Right justify the rest of the string and pad with character "X"
              %|X    Pad to the end of the line with character "X"

       hdrs
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When unset, the header fields normally  added  by  the  “my_hdr”  command  are  not
              created.  This variable must be unset before composing a new message or replying in
              order to take effect.  If set, the user defined header fields are  added  to  every
              new message.

       header
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, this variable causes NeoMutt to include the header of the message you are
              replying to into the edit buffer.  The $weed setting applies.

       header_cache
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              This variable points to the header cache database.   If  pointing  to  a  directory
              NeoMutt will contain a header cache database file per folder, if pointing to a file
              that file will be a single global header cache. By default it is unset so no header
              caching will be used.

              Header  caching  can  greatly  improve  speed  when opening POP, IMAP MH or Maildir
              folders, see “caching” for details.

       header_cache_backend
              Type: -none-
              Default: 0

              This variable specifies the header cache backend.

       header_cache_compress
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When NeoMutt is compiled with qdbm, tokyocabinet or kyotocabinet  as  header  cache
              backend,   this   option  determines  whether  the  database  will  be  compressed.
              Compression results in  database  files  roughly  being  one  fifth  of  the  usual
              diskspace, but the decompression can result in a slower opening of cached folder(s)
              which in general is still much faster than opening non header cached folders.

       header_color_partial
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, color header regexes behave like color body regexes: color is applied  to
              the  exact  text  matched by the regex.  When unset, color is applied to the entire
              header.

              One use of this option might be to apply color to just the header labels.

              See “color” for more details.

       help
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, help lines describing the bindings for the major  functions  provided  by
              each menu are displayed on the first line of the screen.

              Note:  The  binding  will  not be displayed correctly if the function is bound to a
              sequence rather than a single keystroke.  Also, the help line may not be updated if
              a  binding  is  changed while NeoMutt is running.  Since this variable is primarily
              aimed at new users, neither of these should present a major problem.

       hidden_host
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, NeoMutt will skip the host name part of $hostname  variable  when  adding
              the  domain  part  to  addresses.   This variable does not affect the generation of
              Message-IDs, and it will not lead to the cut-off of first-level domains.

       hidden_tags
              Type: string
              Default: "unread,draft,flagged,passed,replied,attachment,signed,encrypted"

              This variable specifies private notmuch/imap tags which should not  be  printed  on
              screen.

       hide_limited
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  not  show  the  presence  of messages that are hidden by
              limiting, in the thread tree.

       hide_missing
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, NeoMutt will not show the presence of  missing  messages  in  the  thread
              tree.

       hide_thread_subject
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  not show the subject of messages in the thread tree that
              have the same subject as their parent or closest previously displayed sibling.

       hide_top_limited
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, NeoMutt will not show  the  presence  of  messages  that  are  hidden  by
              limiting,  at  the top of threads in the thread tree.  Note that when $hide_limited
              is set, this option will have no effect.

       hide_top_missing
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, NeoMutt will not show the presence of missing  messages  at  the  top  of
              threads  in the thread tree.  Note that when $hide_missing is set, this option will
              have no effect.

       history
              Type: number
              Default: 10

              This variable controls the size (in number of strings  remembered)  of  the  string
              history buffer per category. The buffer is cleared each time the variable is set.

       history_file
              Type: path
              Default: "~/.mutthistory"

              The file in which NeoMutt will save its history.

              Also see $save_history.

       history_remove_dups
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, all of the string history will be scanned for duplicates when a new entry
              is added.  Duplicate entries in the $history_file will also be removed when  it  is
              periodically compacted.

       honor_disposition
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  NeoMutt will not display attachments with a disposition of “attachment”
              inline even if it could render the part to plain text. These MIME parts can only be
              viewed from the attachment menu.

              If  unset,  NeoMutt  will  render all MIME parts it can properly transform to plain
              text.

       honor_followup_to
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              This variable controls whether or not a Mail-Followup-To  header  is  honored  when
              group-replying to a message.

       hostname
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Specifies  the  fully-qualified  hostname  of  the  system  NeoMutt  is  running on
              containing the host's name and the DNS domain it belongs to.  It  is  used  as  the
              domain part (after “@”) for local email addresses as well as Message-Id headers.

              If  not specified in a config file, then NeoMutt will try to determine the hostname
              itself.

              Optionally, NeoMutt can be compiled with a fixed domain name.

              Also see $use_domain and $hidden_host.

              Note:  On  Debian  systems,  the  default  for  this  variable  is  obtained   from
              /etc/mailname when Mutt starts.

       idn_decode
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set, NeoMutt will show you international domain names decoded.  Note: You can
              use IDNs for addresses even if this is unset.  This variable only affects decoding.
              (IDN only)

       idn_encode
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set, NeoMutt will encode international domain names using IDN.  Unset this if
              your SMTP server can handle newer (RFC6531) UTF-8 encoded domains. (IDN only)

       ignore_list_reply_to
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Affects the behavior of the <reply> function when replying to messages from mailing
              lists  (as  defined  by  the  “subscribe”  or  “lists” commands).  When set, if the
              “Reply-To:” field is set to the same value as the “To:” field, NeoMutt assumes that
              the  “Reply-To:”  field  was  set  by the mailing list to automate responses to the
              list, and will ignore this field.  To direct a response to the  mailing  list  when
              this option is set, use the <list-reply> function; <group-reply> will reply to both
              the sender and the list.

       imap_authenticators
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This is a colon-delimited list of authentication methods NeoMutt may attempt to use
              to  log in to an IMAP server, in the order NeoMutt should try them.  Authentication
              methods are either “login” or the right  side  of  an  IMAP  “AUTH=xxx”  capability
              string, e.g. “digest-md5”, “gssapi” or “cram-md5”. This option is case-insensitive.
              If it's unset (the default) NeoMutt will try all available methods, in  order  from
              most-secure to least-secure.

              Example:

              set imap_authenticators="gssapi:cram-md5:login"

              Note:  NeoMutt  will only fall back to other authentication methods if the previous
              methods are unavailable. If a method is available but authentication fails, NeoMutt
              will not connect to the IMAP server.

       imap_check_subscribed
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  fetch  the  set  of  subscribed folders from your server
              whenever a mailbox is selected, and add them to the set of mailboxes it  polls  for
              new mail just as if you had issued individual “mailboxes” commands.

       imap_delim_chars
              Type: string
              Default: "/."

              This  contains  the  list  of  characters  which  you would like to treat as folder
              separators for displaying IMAP paths. In particular  it  helps  in  using  the  “=”
              shortcut for your folder variable.

       imap_headers
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              NeoMutt  requests  these header fields in addition to the default headers (“Date:”,
              “From:”, “Subject:”, “To:”, “Cc:”, “Message-Id:”,  “References:”,  “Content-Type:”,
              “Content-Description:”,   “In-Reply-To:”,   “Reply-To:”,   “Lines:”,  “List-Post:”,
              “X-Label:”) from IMAP servers before displaying the index menu. You may want to add
              more headers for spam detection.

              Note: This is a space separated list, items should be uppercase and not contain the
              colon, e.g. “X-BOGOSITY X-SPAM-STATUS” for the “X-Bogosity:”  and  “X-Spam-Status:”
              header fields.

       imap_idle
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, NeoMutt will attempt to use the IMAP IDLE extension to check for new mail
              in the current mailbox. Some servers (dovecot was the inspiration for this  option)
              react  badly  to  NeoMutt's  implementation.  If your connection seems to freeze up
              periodically, try unsetting this.

       imap_keepalive
              Type: number
              Default: 300

              This variable specifies the maximum amount of time in  seconds  that  NeoMutt  will
              wait  before polling open IMAP connections, to prevent the server from closing them
              before NeoMutt has finished with them. The default is well within the RFC-specified
              minimum  amount  of time (30 minutes) before a server is allowed to do this, but in
              practice the RFC does get violated every now and then. Reduce this  number  if  you
              find yourself getting disconnected from your IMAP server due to inactivity.

       imap_list_subscribed
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This variable configures whether IMAP folder browsing will look for only subscribed
              folders or all folders.   This  can  be  toggled  in  the  IMAP  browser  with  the
              <toggle-subscribed> function.

       imap_login
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Your login name on the IMAP server.

              This variable defaults to the value of $imap_user.

       imap_pass
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Specifies  the  password  for your IMAP account.  If unset, NeoMutt will prompt you
              for your password when you invoke the <imap-fetch-mail> function or try to open  an
              IMAP folder.

              Warning:  you  should only use this option when you are on a fairly secure machine,
              because the superuser can read your neomuttrc even if you are the only one who  can
              read the file.

       imap_passive
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  not  open  new  IMAP  connections to check for new mail.
              NeoMutt will only check for new mail  over  existing  IMAP  connections.   This  is
              useful  if  you  don't  want  to  be  prompted  to  user/password  pairs on NeoMutt
              invocation, or if opening the connection is slow.

       imap_peek
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, NeoMutt will avoid implicitly marking your  mail  as  read  whenever  you
              fetch  a  message  from  the  server.  This is generally a good thing, but can make
              closing an IMAP folder somewhat slower. This option exists to appease speed freaks.

       imap_pipeline_depth
              Type: number
              Default: 15

              Controls the number of IMAP commands that may be queued up before they are sent  to
              the  server. A deeper pipeline reduces the amount of time NeoMutt must wait for the
              server, and can make IMAP servers feel much more responsive. But  not  all  servers
              correctly  handle pipelined commands, so if you have problems you might want to try
              setting this variable to 0.

              Note: Changes to this variable have no effect on open connections.

       imap_poll_timeout
              Type: number
              Default: 15

              This variable specifies the maximum amount of time in  seconds  that  NeoMutt  will
              wait  for  a response when polling IMAP connections for new mail, before timing out
              and closing the connection.  Set to 0 to disable timing out.

       imap_servernoise
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, NeoMutt will display warning messages  from  the  IMAP  server  as  error
              messages.   Since   these   messages  are  often  harmless,  or  generated  due  to
              configuration problems on the server which are out of the  users'  hands,  you  may
              wish to suppress them at some point.

       imap_user
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              The name of the user whose mail you intend to access on the IMAP server.

              This variable defaults to your user name on the local machine.

       implicit_autoview
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set  to  “yes”,  NeoMutt will look for a mailcap entry with the “copiousoutput”
              flag set for every MIME attachment it doesn't have an internal viewer defined  for.
              If  such  an  entry  is found, NeoMutt will use the viewer defined in that entry to
              convert the body part to text form.

       include
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              Controls whether or not a copy of the message(s) you are replying to is included in
              your reply.

       include_onlyfirst
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Controls  whether  or not NeoMutt includes only the first attachment of the message
              you are replying.

       indent_string
              Type: string
              Default: "> "

              Specifies the string to prepend to each line of text quoted in a message  to  which
              you  are  replying.   You  are  strongly encouraged not to change this value, as it
              tends to agitate the more fanatical netizens.

              The value of this option is ignored if $text_flowed is  set,  because  the  quoting
              mechanism is strictly defined for format=flowed.

              This  option  is  a  format string, please see the description of $index_format for
              supported printf(3)-style sequences.

       index_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%4C %Z %{%b %d} %-15.15L (%?l?%4l&%4c?) %s"

              This variable allows you to customize the message index display  to  your  personal
              taste.

              “Format  strings”  are  similar  to the strings used in the C function printf(3) to
              format output (see the man page for more details).  For an explanation  of  the  %?
              construct,  see the status_format description.  The following sequences are defined
              in NeoMutt:
              %a     Address of the author
              %A     Reply-to address (if present; otherwise: address of author)
              %b     Filename of the original message folder (think mailbox)
              %B     The list to which the letter was sent, or else the folder name (%b).
              %C     Current message number
              %c     Number of characters (bytes) in the message
              %D     Date and time of message using date_format and local timezone
              %d     Date and time of message using date_format and sender's timezone
              %e     Current message number in thread
              %E     Number of messages in current thread
              %F     Author name, or recipient name if the message is from you
              %f     Sender (address + real name), either From: or Return-Path:
              %g     Newsgroup name (if compiled with NNTP support)
              %g     Message tags (e.g. notmuch tags/imap flags)
              %Gx    Individual message tag (e.g. notmuch tags/imap flags)
              %H     Spam attribute(s) of this message
              %I     Initials of author
              %i     Message-id of the current message
              %J     Message tags (if present, tree unfolded, and != parent's tags)
              %K     The list to which the letter was sent (if any; otherwise: empty)

                     by  the users “subscribe” command, this displays "To <list-name>", otherwise
                     the same as %F

                     encryption   flags   (“D”/“d”/“S”/“P”/“s”/“K”).    The   third   is   either
                     tagged/flagged (“*”/“!”), or one of the characters Listed in $to_chars.
              %zc    Message crypto flags

              Date format expressions can be constructed based on relative dates. Using the  date
              formatting  operators  along  with  nested  conditionals,  the  date  format can be
              modified based on how old a message is.  See the section on “Conditional Dates” for
              an   explanation   and  examples  “Soft-fill”  deserves  some  explanation:  Normal
              right-justification will print everything to  the  left  of  the  “%>”,  displaying
              padding and whatever lies to the right only if there's room. By contrast, soft-fill
              gives priority to the right-hand side, guaranteeing space to display it and showing
              padding only if there's still room. If necessary, soft-fill will eat text leftwards
              to make room for rightward text.

              Note that these expandos are supported in “save-hook”,  “fcc-hook”  and  “fcc-save-
              hook”, too.

       inews
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              If set, specifies the program and arguments used to deliver news posted by NeoMutt.
              Otherwise, NeoMutt posts article using current  connection  to  news  server.   The
              following printf-style sequence is understood:
              %a     account url
              %p     port
              %P     port if specified
              %s     news server name
              %S     url schema
              %u     username

              Example:

              set inews="/usr/local/bin/inews -hS"

       ispell
              Type: command
              Default: "ispell"

              How to invoke ispell (GNU's spell-checking software).

       keep_flagged
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set,  read messages marked as flagged will not be moved from your spool mailbox
              to your $mbox mailbox, or as a result of a “mbox-hook” command.

       mail_check
              Type: number
              Default: 5

              This variable configures how often (in seconds) NeoMutt should look for  new  mail.
              Also see the $timeout variable.

       mail_check_recent
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set, NeoMutt will only notify you about new mail that has been received since
              the last time you opened the mailbox.  When unset, NeoMutt will notify you  if  any
              new mail exists in the mailbox, regardless of whether you have visited it recently.

              When $mark_old is set, NeoMutt does not consider the mailbox to contain new mail if
              only old messages exist.

       mail_check_stats
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, NeoMutt will periodically calculate message statistics of a mailbox while
              polling for new mail.  It will check for unread, flagged, and total message counts.
              Because this operation is more performance intensive, it defaults to unset, and has
              a separate option, $mail_check_stats_interval, to control how often to update these
              counts.

              Message statistics can also be explicitly calculated by invoking the  <check-stats>
              function.

       mail_check_stats_interval
              Type: number
              Default: 60

              When  $mail_check_stats  is  set,  this  variable configures how often (in seconds)
              NeoMutt will update message counts.

       mailcap_path
              Type: string
              Default: "~/.mailcap:/usr/share/neomutt/mailcap:/etc/mailcap:/etc/mailcap:/usr/etc/mailcap:/usr/local/etc/mailcap"

              This variable specifies which files to consult  when  attempting  to  display  MIME
              bodies not directly supported by NeoMutt.

              $mailcap_path is overridden by the environment variable $MAILCAPS.

              The default search path is from RFC1524.

       mailcap_sanitize
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  NeoMutt  will  restrict  possible  characters  in mailcap % expandos to a
              well-defined set of safe characters.  This is the safe setting, but we are not sure
              it doesn't break some more advanced MIME stuff.

              DON'T CHANGE THIS SETTING UNLESS YOU ARE REALLY SURE WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

       maildir_check_cur
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set, NeoMutt will poll both the new and cur directories of a maildir folder for
              new messages.  This might be useful if other programs interacting with  the  folder
              (e.g.  dovecot)  are  moving  new messages to the cur directory.  Note that setting
              this option may slow down polling for new messages in large folders, since  NeoMutt
              has to scan all cur messages.

       maildir_header_cache_verify
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Check for Maildir unaware programs other than NeoMutt having modified maildir files
              when the header cache is in use.  This incurs one stat(2) per  message  every  time
              the folder is opened (which can be very slow for NFS folders).

       maildir_trash
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set,  messages  marked  as  deleted will be saved with the maildir trashed flag
              instead of unlinked.  Note: this only applies to maildir-style mailboxes.   Setting
              it will have no effect on other mailbox types.

       mark_macro_prefix
              Type: string
              Default: "'"

              Prefix  for macros created using mark-message.  A new macro automatically generated
              with <mark-message>a will be composed from this prefix and the letter a.

       mark_old
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls whether or not NeoMutt marks new unread messages as  old  if  you  exit  a
              mailbox  without  reading  them.   With  this  option  set, the next time you start
              NeoMutt, the messages will show up with an “O” next to  them  in  the  index  menu,
              indicating that they are old.

       markers
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls  the  display of wrapped lines in the internal pager. If set, a “+” marker
              is displayed at the beginning of wrapped lines.

              Also see the $smart_wrap variable.

       mask
              Type: regular expression
              Default: "&Mask,IP!^\.[^.]"

              A regular expression used in the file  browser,  optionally  preceded  by  the  not
              operator  “!”.   Only files whose names match this mask will be shown. The match is
              always case-sensitive.

       mbox
              Type: path
              Default: "~/mbox"

              This specifies the folder into which read mail in your $spoolfile  folder  will  be
              appended.

              Also see the $move variable.

       mbox_type
              Type: folder magic
              Default: mbox

              The  default  mailbox  type  used  when creating new folders. May be any of “mbox”,
              “MMDF”, “MH” or “Maildir”.

              This can also be set using the -m command-line option.

       menu_context
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              This variable controls the number of lines of context that are given when scrolling
              through menus. (Similar to $pager_context.)

       menu_move_off
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  unset,  the bottom entry of menus will never scroll up past the bottom of the
              screen, unless there are less entries than lines.  When set, the bottom  entry  may
              move off the bottom.

       menu_scroll
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  menus  will  be  scrolled  up or down one line when you attempt to move
              across a screen boundary.  If unset, the screen is cleared and the next or previous
              page of the menu is displayed (useful for slow links to avoid many redraws).

       message_cache_clean
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set,  NeoMutt  will  clean out obsolete entries from the message cache when the
              mailbox is synchronized. You probably only want to set it every once  in  a  while,
              since it can be a little slow (especially for large folders).

       message_cachedir
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              Set  this  to  a directory and NeoMutt will cache copies of messages from your IMAP
              and POP servers here. You are free to remove entries at any time.

              When setting this variable to a directory, NeoMutt  needs  to  fetch  every  remote
              message  only once and can perform regular expression searches as fast as for local
              folders.

              Also see the $message_cache_clean variable.

       message_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%s"

              This is the string displayed in the  “attachment”  menu  for  attachments  of  type
              message/rfc822.   For  a  full  listing of defined printf(3)-like sequences see the
              section on $index_format.

       meta_key
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, forces NeoMutt to interpret keystrokes with the high bit (bit 8) set as  if
              the user had pressed the Esc key and whatever key remains after having the high bit
              removed.  For example, if the key pressed has an ASCII value of 0xf8, then this  is
              treated  as  if  the  user had pressed Esc then “x”.  This is because the result of
              removing the high bit from 0xf8 is 0x78, which is the ASCII character “x”.

       metoo
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If unset, NeoMutt will remove your address (see the “alternates” command) from  the
              list of recipients when replying to a message.

       mh_purge
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  unset,  NeoMutt will mimic mh's behavior and rename deleted messages to ,<old
              file name> in mh folders instead of really deleting them. This leaves  the  message
              on  disk  but  makes programs reading the folder ignore it. If the variable is set,
              the message files will simply be deleted.

              This option is similar to $maildir_trash for Maildir folders.

       mh_seq_flagged
              Type: string
              Default: "flagged"

              The name of the MH sequence used for flagged messages.

       mh_seq_replied
              Type: string
              Default: "replied"

              The name of the MH sequence used to tag replied messages.

       mh_seq_unseen
              Type: string
              Default: "unseen"

              The name of the MH sequence used for unseen messages.

       mime_forward
              Type: quadoption
              Default: no

              When  set,  the  message  you  are  forwarding  will  be  attached  as  a  separate
              message/rfc822 MIME part instead of included in the main body of the message.  This
              is useful for forwarding MIME messages  so  the  receiver  can  properly  view  the
              message as it was delivered to you. If you like to switch between MIME and not MIME
              from mail to mail, set this variable to “ask-no” or “ask-yes”.

              Also see $forward_decode and $mime_forward_decode.

       mime_forward_decode
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Controls the decoding of complex MIME messages into text/plain  when  forwarding  a
              message while $mime_forward is set. Otherwise $forward_decode is used instead.

       mime_forward_rest
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              When  forwarding  multiple  attachments of a MIME message from the attachment menu,
              attachments which cannot be decoded in a reasonable manner will be attached to  the
              newly composed message if this option is set.

       mime_subject
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  unset, 8-bit “subject:” line in article header will not be encoded according to
              RFC2047 to base64.  This is useful when message is Usenet article, because MIME for
              news is nonstandard feature.

       mime_type_query_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This  specifies  a  command  to run, to determine the mime type of a new attachment
              when composing a message.  Unless $mime_type_query_first is set, this will only  be
              run if the attachment's extension is not found in the mime.types file.

              The  string  may  contain  a  “%s”,  which  will be substituted with the attachment
              filename.   NeoMutt  will  add  quotes  around  the  string  substituted  for  “%s”
              automatically  according  to  shell  quoting rules, so you should avoid adding your
              own.  If no “%s” is found  in  the  string,  NeoMutt  will  append  the  attachment
              filename to the end of the string.

              The command should output a single line containing the attachment's mime type.

              Suggested values are “xdg-mime query filetype” or “file -bi”.

       mime_type_query_first
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, the $mime_type_query_command will be run before the mime.types lookup.

       mix_entry_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%4n %c %-16s %a"

              This  variable  describes  the  format  of  a  remailer line on the mixmaster chain
              selection screen.  The following printf(3)-like sequences are supported:
              %a     The remailer's e-mail address
              %c     Remailer capabilities
              %n     The running number on the menu
              %s     The remailer's short name

       mixmaster
              Type: command
              Default: "mixmaster"

              This variable contains the path to the Mixmaster binary on your system.  It is used
              with  various  sets  of  parameters  to  gather the list of known remailers, and to
              finally send a message through the mixmaster chain.

              Note: On Debian systems, this option is set by  default  to  “mixmaster-filter”  in
              /etc/Muttrc.

              Type: command
              Default: ""

              If  set,  NeoMutt  will call this command after a new message is received.  See the
              $status_format documentation for  the  values  that  can  be  formatted  into  this
              command.

       news_cache_dir
              Type: path
              Default: "~/.neomutt"

              This  variable  pointing  to directory where NeoMutt will save cached news articles
              and headers in. If unset, articles and headers will not be saved at all and will be
              reloaded from the server each time.

       news_server
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This variable specifies domain name or address of NNTP server.

              You  can  also  specify username and an alternative port for each news server, e.g.
              [[s]news://][username[:password]@]server[:port]

              This option can also be set using the command line  option  “-g”,  the  environment
              variable $NNTPSERVER, or putting the server name in the file “/etc/nntpserver”.

       newsgroups_charset
              Type: string
              Default: "utf-8"

              Character set of newsgroups descriptions.

              Default: ""

              This variable specifies the default Notmuch database in format  notmuch://<absolute
              path>.

       nm_exclude_tags
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              The  messages tagged with these tags are excluded and not loaded from notmuch DB to
              NeoMutt unless specified explicitly.

       nm_open_timeout
              Type: number
              Default: 5

              This variable specifies the timeout for database open in seconds.

              This variable specifies the default  query  type  (threads  or  messages)  used  in
              notmuch queries.

       nm_query_window_current_position
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              This variable contains the currently setup notmuch search for window based vfolder.

       nm_query_window_current_search
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This  variable sets the time duration of a windowed notmuch query.  Accepted values
              all non negative integers. A value of 0 disables the feature.

       nm_query_window_duration

              This variable sets the time duration of a windowed notmuch query.  Accepted  values
              all non negative integers. A value of 0 disables the feature.

       nm_query_window_timebase
              Type: string
              Default: "week"

              This  variable sets the time base of a windowed notmuch query.  Accepted values are
              'minute', 'hour', 'day', 'week', 'month', 'year'

       nm_record
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This variable specifies if the NeoMutt record should indexed by notmuch.

       nm_record_tags
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This variable specifies the default tags applied to messages stored to the  NeoMutt

       nm_unread_tag
              Type: string
              Default: "unread"

              This variable specifies notmuch tag which is used for unread messages. The variable
              is used to count unread messages  in  DB  only.  All  other  NeoMutt  commands  use
              standard (e.g. maildir) flags.

       nntp_authenticators
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This is a colon-delimited list of authentication methods NeoMutt may attempt to use
              to log in to a news server, in the order NeoMutt should try  them.   Authentication
              methods  are  either  “user”  or any SASL mechanism, e.g. “digest-md5”, “gssapi” or
              “cram-md5”.  This option is case-insensitive.  If it's unset (the default)  NeoMutt
              will try all available methods, in order from most-secure to least-secure.

              Example:

              set nntp_authenticators="digest-md5:user"

              Note:  NeoMutt  will only fall back to other authentication methods if the previous
              methods are unavailable. If a method is available but authentication fails, NeoMutt
              will not connect to the IMAP server.

       nntp_context
              Type: number
              Default: 1000

              This  variable  defines  number  of  articles which will be in index when newsgroup
              entered.  If active newsgroup have more articles than this number, oldest  articles
              will  be  ignored.   Also controls how many articles headers will be saved in cache
              when you quit newsgroup.

       nntp_listgroup
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This variable controls whether or not existence of each  article  is  checked  when
              newsgroup is entered.

       nntp_load_description
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This  variable  controls  whether  or  not  descriptions for each newsgroup must be
              loaded when newsgroup is added to list (first time list loading  or  new  newsgroup
              adding).

       nntp_pass
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Your password for NNTP account.

       nntp_poll
              Type: number
              Default: 60

              The  time in seconds until any operations on newsgroup except post new article will
              cause recheck for new news.  If set to 0, NeoMutt will recheck  newsgroup  on  each
              operation in index (stepping, read article, etc.).

       nntp_user
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Your   login  name  on  the  NNTP  server.   If  unset  and  NNTP  server  requires
              authentication, NeoMutt will prompt you for your account name when you  connect  to
              news server.

       pager
              Type: command
              Default: "builtin"

              This  variable  specifies  which  pager you would like to use to view messages. The
              value “builtin” means to use the built-in pager,  otherwise  this  variable  should
              specify the pathname of the external pager you would like to use.

              Using  an  external  pager  may  have some disadvantages: Additional keystrokes are
              necessary because you can't call NeoMutt functions directly  from  the  pager,  and
              screen  resizes  cause  lines longer than the screen width to be badly formatted in
              the help menu.

       pager_context
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              This variable controls  the  number  of  lines  of  context  that  are  given  when
              displaying  the  next  or previous page in the internal pager.  By default, NeoMutt
              will display the line after the last one on the screen at the top of the next  page
              (0 lines of context).

              This  variable  also  specifies  the amount of context given for search results. If
              positive, this many lines will be given before a match, if 0,  the  match  will  be
              top-aligned.

       pager_format
              Type: string
              Default: "-%Z- %C/%m: %-20.20n   %s%*  -- (%P)"

              This variable controls the format of the one-line message “status” displayed before
              each message in either the internal or an external pager.  The valid sequences  are
              listed in the $index_format section.

       pager_index_lines
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              Determines  the  number  of lines of a mini-index which is shown when in the pager.
              The current message, unless near the top or bottom of the folder, will  be  roughly
              one  third  of the way down this mini-index, giving the reader the context of a few
              messages before and after the message.  This is useful, for example,  to  determine
              how  many  messages  remain  to be read in the current thread.  One of the lines is
              reserved for the status bar from the index, so a setting of  6  will  only  show  5
              lines  of  the actual index.  A value of 0 results in no index being shown.  If the
              number of messages in the current folder is less than $pager_index_lines, then  the
              index will only use as many lines as it needs.

       pager_stop
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set, the internal-pager will not move to the next message when you are at the
              end of a message and invoke the <next-page> function.

       pgp_auto_decode
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, NeoMutt will automatically attempt  to  decrypt  traditional  PGP  messages
              whenever  the  user  performs  an  operation  which  ordinarily would result in the
              contents of the message being operated on.  For example, if  the  user  displays  a
              pgp-traditional  message  which  has  not  been  manually  checked with the <check-
              traditional-pgp>  function,  NeoMutt  will  automatically  check  the  message  for
              traditional pgp.

       pgp_autoinline
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This  option  controls whether NeoMutt generates old-style inline (traditional) PGP
              encrypted or signed messages under certain circumstances.  This can  be  overridden
              by  use  of  the pgp menu, when inline is not required.  The GPGME backend does not
              support this option.

              Note that NeoMutt might automatically use PGP/MIME for messages  which  consist  of
              more  than  a  single  MIME  part.  NeoMutt can be configured to ask before sending
              PGP/MIME messages when inline (traditional) would not work.

              Also see the $pgp_mime_auto variable.

              Also note that using the old-style PGP message format is strongly deprecated.  (PGP
              only)

       pgp_check_exit
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  NeoMutt  will  check  the exit code of the PGP subprocess when signing or
              encrypting.  A non-zero exit code means that the subprocess failed.  (PGP only)

       pgp_check_gpg_decrypt_status_fd
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If set, mutt will check the status file descriptor output  of  $pgp_decrypt_command
              for  GnuPG  status codes indicating successful decryption.  This will check for the
              presence of DECRYPTION_OKAY, absence of DECRYPTION_FAILED, and that  all  PLAINTEXT
              occurs between the BEGIN_DECRYPTION and END_DECRYPTION status codes.

              If    unset,   mutt   will   instead   match   the   status   fd   output   against
              $pgp_decryption_okay.  (PGP only)

       pgp_clearsign_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This format is used to create an old-style “clearsigned” PGP  message.   Note  that
              the use of this format is strongly deprecated.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_decode_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This format strings specifies a command which is  used  to  decode  application/pgp
              attachments.

              The PGP command formats have their own set of printf(3)-like sequences:
              %p     Expands  to  PGPPASSFD=0  when  a  pass phrase is needed, to an empty string
                     otherwise. Note: This may be used with a %? construct.
              %f     Expands to the name of a file containing a message.
              %s     Expands to the name of a file containing the signature part
                                of a multipart/signed attachment when verifying it.
              %a     The value of $pgp_sign_as if set, otherwise the value of $pgp_default_key.
              %r     One or more key IDs (or fingerprints if available).

              For examples on how to configure these formats for  the  various  versions  of  PGP
              which  are  floating  around, see the pgp and gpg sample configuration files in the
              samples/ subdirectory which  has  been  installed  on  your  system  alongside  the
              documentation.  (PGP only)

       pgp_decrypt_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to decrypt a PGP encrypted message.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_decryption_okay
              Type: regular expression
              Default: ""

              If you assign text to  this  variable,  then  an  encrypted  PGP  message  is  only
              considered  successfully decrypted if the output from $pgp_decrypt_command contains
              the text.  This is used to  protect  against  a  spoofed  encrypted  message,  with
              multipart/encrypted  headers but containing a block that is not actually encrypted.
              (e.g. simply signed and ascii armored text).

              Note that if $pgp_check_gpg_decrypt_status_fd is set,  this  variable  is  ignored.
              (PGP only)

       pgp_default_key
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This  is  the  default  key-pair  to  use  for PGP operations.  It will be used for
              encryption (see $postpone_encrypt and $pgp_self_encrypt).

              It will also be used for signing unless $pgp_sign_as is set.

              The (now deprecated) pgp_self_encrypt_as is an alias for this variable, and  should
              no longer be used.  (PGP only)

       pgp_encrypt_only_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to encrypt a body part without signing it.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_encrypt_sign_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to both sign and encrypt a body part.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_entry_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%4n %t%f %4l/0x%k %-4a %2c %u"

              This  variable  allows you to customize the PGP key selection menu to your personal
              taste.  This  string  is  similar  to  $index_format,  but  has  its  own  set   of
              printf(3)-like sequences:
              %a     Algorithm
              %c     Capabilities
              %f     Flags
              %k     Key id
              %l     Key length
              %n     Number
              %p     Protocol
              %t     Trust/validity of the key-uid association
              %u     User id
              %[<s>] Date of the key where <s> is an strftime(3) expression

              (PGP only)

       pgp_export_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to export a public key from the user's key ring.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_getkeys_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is invoked whenever NeoMutt needs to fetch the public  key  associated
              with  an  email  address.  Of the sequences supported by $pgp_decode_command, %r is
              the only printf(3)-like sequence used with this format.  Note that in this case, %r
              expands  to  the email address, not the public key ID (the key ID is unknown, which
              is why NeoMutt is invoking this command).  (PGP only)

       pgp_good_sign
              Type: regular expression
              Default: ""

              If you assign a text to this variable, then a  PGP  signature  is  only  considered
              verified  if  the  output  from  $pgp_verify_command  contains  the  text. Use this
              variable if the exit code from the command is 0  even  for  bad  signatures.   (PGP
              only)

       pgp_ignore_subkeys
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Setting  this  variable  will cause NeoMutt to ignore OpenPGP subkeys. Instead, the
              principal key will inherit the subkeys' capabilities.  Unset this if  you  want  to
              play interesting key selection games.  (PGP only)

       pgp_import_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This  command  is  used  to  import a key from a message into the user's public key
              ring.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_list_pubring_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This  command  is  used  to list the public key ring's contents.  The output format
              must be analogous to the one used by

              gpg --list-keys --with-colons --with-fingerprint

              Note: gpg's fixed-list-mode option should not be used.   It  produces  a  different
              date format which may result in NeoMutt showing incorrect key generation dates.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_list_secring_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to list the secret key ring's  contents.   The  output  format
              must be analogous to the one used by:

              gpg --list-keys --with-colons --with-fingerprint

              Note:  gpg's  fixed-list-mode  option  should not be used.  It produces a different
              date format which may result in NeoMutt showing incorrect key generation dates.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_long_ids
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  use  64  bit  PGP key IDs, if unset use the normal 32 bit key IDs.  NOTE:
              Internally, NeoMutt has transitioned to using fingerprints (or long key  IDs  as  a
              fallback).   This  option  now  only  controls  the  display  of key IDs in the key
              selection menu and a few other places.  (PGP only)

       pgp_mime_auto
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              This option controls whether NeoMutt will prompt you for  automatically  sending  a
              (signed/encrypted)  message using PGP/MIME when inline (traditional) fails (for any
              reason).

              Also note that using the old-style PGP message format is strongly deprecated.  (PGP
              only)

       pgp_replyinline
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Setting  this  variable  will  cause  NeoMutt to always attempt to create an inline
              (traditional) message when replying to a  message  which  is  PGP  encrypted/signed
              inline.   This  can  be  overridden  by  use  of  the  pgp menu, when inline is not
              required.  This option does not automatically detect if the (replied-to) message is
              inline;  instead  it  relies  on  NeoMutt  internals for previously checked/flagged
              messages.

              Note that NeoMutt might automatically use PGP/MIME for messages  which  consist  of
              more  than  a  single  MIME  part.  NeoMutt can be configured to ask before sending
              PGP/MIME messages when inline (traditional) would not work.

              Also see the $pgp_mime_auto variable.

              Also note that using the old-style PGP message format is strongly deprecated.  (PGP
              only)

       pgp_retainable_sigs
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set,  signed and encrypted messages will consist of nested multipart/signed and
              multipart/encrypted body parts.

              This is useful for applications like encrypted and signed mailing lists, where  the
              outer   layer   (multipart/encrypted)  can  be  easily  removed,  while  the  inner
              multipart/signed part is retained.  (PGP only)

       pgp_self_encrypt
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set,  PGP  encrypted  messages  will  also  be  encrypted  using  the  key  in
              $pgp_default_key.  (PGP only)

       pgp_show_unusable
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  NeoMutt will display non-usable keys on the PGP key selection menu.  This
              includes keys which have been  revoked,  have  expired,  or  have  been  marked  as
              “disabled” by the user.  (PGP only)

       pgp_sign_as
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              If  you  have  a  different key pair to use for signing, you should set this to the
              signing  key.   Most  people  will  only  need  to  set  $pgp_default_key.   It  is
              recommended  that  you  use  the  keyid form to specify your key (e.g. 0x00112233).
              (PGP only)

       pgp_sign_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to create the detached PGP signature  for  a  multipart/signed
              PGP/MIME body part.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_sort_keys
              Type: sort order
              Default: address

              Specifies how the entries in the pgp menu  are  sorted.  The  following  are  legal
              values:
              address
                     sort alphabetically by user id
              keyid  sort alphabetically by key id
              date   sort by key creation date
              trust  sort by the trust of the key

              If  you  prefer reverse order of the above values, prefix it with “reverse-”.  (PGP
              only)

       pgp_strict_enc
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  NeoMutt  will  automatically   encode   PGP/MIME   signed   messages   as
              quoted-printable.   Please  note  that unsetting this variable may lead to problems
              with non-verifyable PGP signatures, so only change this if you know  what  you  are
              doing.  (PGP only)

       pgp_timeout
              Type: number (long)
              Default: 300

              The  number  of  seconds  after  which a cached passphrase will expire if not used.
              (PGP only)

       pgp_use_gpg_agent
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, NeoMutt will use a possibly-running gpg-agent(1) process.  Note that as  of
              version  2.1, GnuPG no longer exports GPG_AGENT_INFO, so NeoMutt no longer verifies
              if the agent is running.  (PGP only)

       pgp_verify_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to verify PGP signatures.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pgp_verify_key_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to verify key information from the key selection menu.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $pgp_decode_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (PGP only)

       pipe_decode
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Used in connection with the <pipe-message> command.  When unset, NeoMutt will  pipe
              the  messages  without  any  preprocessing. When set, NeoMutt will weed headers and
              will attempt to decode the messages first.

       pipe_sep
              Type: string
              Default: "\n"

              The separator to add between messages when piping a list of tagged messages  to  an
              external Unix command.

       pipe_split
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Used  in  connection  with  the <pipe-message> function following <tag-prefix>.  If
              this variable is unset,  when  piping  a  list  of  tagged  messages  NeoMutt  will
              concatenate  the  messages  and will pipe them all concatenated.  When set, NeoMutt
              will pipe the messages one by one.  In both cases the messages  are  piped  in  the
              current sorted order, and the $pipe_sep separator is added after each message.

       pop_auth_try_all
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If set, NeoMutt will try all available authentication methods.  When unset, NeoMutt
              will only fall back to other authentication methods if  the  previous  methods  are
              unavailable.  If  a  method is available but authentication fails, NeoMutt will not
              connect to the POP server.

       pop_authenticators
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This is a colon-delimited list of authentication methods NeoMutt may attempt to use
              to  log  in to an POP server, in the order NeoMutt should try them.  Authentication
              methods are either  “user”,  “apop”  or  any  SASL  mechanism,  e.g.  “digest-md5”,
              “gssapi”  or  “cram-md5”.  This option is case-insensitive. If this option is unset
              (the default) NeoMutt will try all available methods, in order from most-secure  to
              least-secure.

              Example:

              set pop_authenticators="digest-md5:apop:user"

       pop_checkinterval
              Type: number
              Default: 60

              This variable configures how often (in seconds) NeoMutt should look for new mail in
              the currently selected mailbox if it is a POP mailbox.

       pop_delete
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-no

              If set, NeoMutt will delete successfully downloaded messages from  the  POP  server
              when  using  the <fetch-mail> function.  When unset, NeoMutt will download messages
              but also leave them on the POP server.

       pop_host
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              The name of your POP server for the <fetch-mail> function.  You can also specify an
              alternative port, username and password, i.e.:

              [pop[s]://][username[:password]@]popserver[:port]

              where “[...]” denotes an optional part.

       pop_last
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  this  variable  is  set,  NeoMutt  will  try  to use the “LAST” POP command for
              retrieving only unread messages from the POP server  when  using  the  <fetch-mail>
              function.

       pop_pass
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Specifies the password for your POP account.  If unset, NeoMutt will prompt you for
              your password when you open a POP mailbox.

              Warning: you should only use this option when you are on a fairly  secure  machine,
              because  the superuser can read your neomuttrc even if you are the only one who can
              read the file.

       pop_reconnect
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              Controls whether or not NeoMutt will try to reconnect to  the  POP  server  if  the
              connection is lost.

       pop_user
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Your login name on the POP server.

              This variable defaults to your user name on the local machine.

       post_indent_string
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Similar  to  the  $attribution  variable, NeoMutt will append this string after the
              inclusion of a message which is being replied to.

       post_moderated
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              If set to yes, NeoMutt will post article to newsgroup that have not permissions  to
              posting  (e.g.  moderated).   Note: if news server does not support posting to that
              newsgroup or totally read-only, that posting will not have an effect.

       postpone
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              Controls whether or not messages are saved in the $postponed mailbox when you elect
              not to send immediately.

              Also see the $recall variable.

       postpone_encrypt
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, postponed messages that are marked for encryption will be self-encrypted.
              NeoMutt will first try to encrypt using the value specified in $pgp_default_key  or
              $smime_default_key.    If   those   are   not  set,  it  will  try  the  deprecated
              $postpone_encrypt_as.  (Crypto only)

       postpone_encrypt_as
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This  is  a  deprecated  fall-back  variable  for  $postpone_encrypt.   Please  use
              $pgp_default_key or $smime_default_key.  (Crypto only)

       postponed
              Type: path
              Default: "~/postponed"

              NeoMutt  allows  you  to  indefinitely  “postpone  sending a message” which you are
              editing.  When you choose to postpone a message, NeoMutt saves it  in  the  mailbox
              specified by this variable.

              Also see the $postpone variable.

       preconnect
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              If  set,  a shell command to be executed if NeoMutt fails to establish a connection
              to the server. This is useful for setting up secure connections, e.g. with  ssh(1).
              If  the  command  returns  a   nonzero status, NeoMutt gives up opening the server.
              Example:

              set preconnect="ssh -f -q -L 1234:mailhost.net:143 mailhost.net \
              sleep 20 < /dev/null > /dev/null"

              Mailbox “foo” on “mailhost.net” can now be reached as “{localhost:1234}foo”.

              Note: For this example to work, you must be able to log in to  the  remote  machine
              without having to enter a password.

       preferred_languages
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              RFC8255  :  user  preferred  languages  to be search in parts and display Ex. : set
              preferred_languages="en,fr,de"

       print
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-no

              Controls whether or not NeoMutt really prints messages.  This is set to “ask-no” by
              default, because some people accidentally hit “p” often.

       print_command
              Type: command
              Default: "lpr"

              This specifies the command pipe that should be used to print messages.

       print_decode
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Used  in  connection  with the <print-message> command.  If this option is set, the
              message is decoded before it  is  passed  to  the  external  command  specified  by
              $print_command.   If  this  option  is  unset, no processing will be applied to the
              message when printing it.  The latter setting may be useful if you are  using  some
              advanced  printer  filter  which  is  able  to  properly format e-mail messages for
              printing.

       print_split
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Used in connection with the <print-message> command.  If this option  is  set,  the
              command  specified  by $print_command is executed once for each message which is to
              be printed.  If this option is unset, the command specified  by  $print_command  is
              executed  only once, and all the messages are concatenated, with a form feed as the
              message separator.

              Those who use the enscript(1) program's mail-printing mode will most likely want to
              set this option.

       prompt_after
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  you  use an external $pager, setting this variable will cause NeoMutt to prompt
              you for a command when the pager exits rather than returning to the index menu.  If
              unset, NeoMutt will return to the index menu when the external pager exits.

       query_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This  specifies the command NeoMutt will use to make external address queries.  The
              string may contain a “%s”, which will be substituted with the query string the user
              types.    NeoMutt   will   add  quotes  around  the  string  substituted  for  “%s”
              automatically according to shell quoting rules, so you  should  avoid  adding  your
              own.   If  no  “%s” is found in the string, NeoMutt will append the user's query to
              the end of the string.  See “query” for more information.

       query_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%4c %t %-25.25a %-25.25n %?e?(%e)?"

              This  variable  describes  the  format  of  the   “query”   menu.   The   following
              printf(3)-style sequences are understood:
              %a     Destination address
              %c     Current entry number
              %e     Extra information *
              %n     Destination name
              %t     “*” if current entry is tagged, a space otherwise
              %>X    Right justify the rest of the string and pad with “X”
              %|X    Pad to the end of the line with “X”
              %*X    Soft-fill with character “X” as pad

              For an explanation of “soft-fill”, see the $index_format documentation.

              * = can be optionally printed if nonzero, see the $status_format documentation.

       quit
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              This  variable  controls  whether “quit” and “exit” actually quit from NeoMutt.  If
              this option is set, they do quit, if it is unset, they have no effect, and if it is
              set to ask-yes or ask-no, you are prompted for confirmation when you try to quit.

       quote_regex
              Type: regular expression
              Default: "^([ \t]*[|>:}#])+"

              A  regular  expression  used  in the internal pager to determine quoted sections of
              text in the body  of  a  message.  Quoted  text  may  be  filtered  out  using  the
              <toggle-quoted>  command,  or  colored  according  to  the “color quoted” family of
              directives.

              Higher levels of quoting  may  be  colored  differently  (“color  quoted1”,  “color
              quoted2”,  etc.).  The  quoting  level is determined by removing the last character
              from the matched text and recursively reapplying the regular  expression  until  it
              fails to produce a match.

              Match detection may be overridden by the $smileys regular expression.

       read_inc
              Type: number
              Default: 10

              If  set  to  a  value  greater  than  0,  NeoMutt  will display which message it is
              currently on when reading a mailbox or  when  performing  search  actions  such  as
              search and limit. The message is printed after this many messages have been read or
              searched (e.g., if set to 25, NeoMutt will print a message when it  is  at  message
              25, and then again when it gets to message 50).  This variable is meant to indicate
              progress when reading or searching large mailboxes which may take some time.   When
              set to 0, only a single message will appear before the reading the mailbox.

              Also  see the $write_inc, $net_inc and $time_inc variables and the “tuning” section
              of the manual for performance considerations.

       read_only
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, all folders are opened in read-only mode.

       realname
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This variable specifies what “real” or “personal” name should be used when  sending
              messages.

              If  not specified, then the user's “real name” will be read from /etc/passwd.  This
              option will not be used, if “$from” is set.

       recall
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              Controls whether or not NeoMutt recalls postponed messages  when  composing  a  new
              message.

              Setting  this  variable  to  yes is not generally useful, and thus not recommended.
              Note that the <recall-message> function can be used to  manually  recall  postponed
              messages.

              Also see $postponed variable.

       record
              Type: path
              Default: "~/sent"

              This  specifies  the  file  into  which  your outgoing messages should be appended.
              (This is meant as the primary method for  saving  a  copy  of  your  messages,  but
              another  way to do this is using the “my_hdr” command to create a “Bcc:” field with
              your email address in it.)

              The value of $record is overridden by the $force_name and $save_name variables, and
              the “fcc-hook” command.  Also see $copy.

       reflow_space_quotes
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This  option  controls  how quotes from format=flowed messages are displayed in the
              pager and when replying (with $text_flowed unset).   When  set,  this  option  adds
              spaces after each level of quote marks, turning ">>>foo" into "> > > foo".

              Note:  If $reflow_text is unset, this option has no effect.  Also, this option does
              not affect replies when $text_flowed is set.

       reflow_text
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  reformat   paragraphs   in   text/plain   parts   marked
              format=flowed.   If  unset, NeoMutt will display paragraphs unaltered from how they
              appear in the message body.  See RFC3676 for details on the format=flowed format.

              Also see $reflow_wrap, and $wrap.

       reflow_wrap
              Type: number
              Default: 78

              This variable controls the maximum paragraph  width  when  reformatting  text/plain
              parts when $reflow_text is set.  When the value is 0, paragraphs will be wrapped at
              the terminal's right margin.  A positive value sets the paragraph width relative to
              the  left  margin.   A negative value set the paragraph width relative to the right
              margin.

              Also see $wrap.

       reply_regex
              Type: regular expression
              Default: "^((re|aw|sv)(\[[0-9]+\])*:[ \t]*)*"

              A regular expression used to recognize reply messages when threading and  replying.
              The  default  value  corresponds  to  the  English  "Re:", the German "Aw:" and the
              Swedish "Sv:".

       reply_self
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If unset and you are replying to a message sent by you, NeoMutt  will  assume  that
              you want to reply to the recipients of that message rather than to yourself.

              Also see the “alternates” command.

       reply_to
              Type: quadoption
              Default: ask-yes

              If  set,  when  replying  to  a message, NeoMutt will use the address listed in the
              Reply-to: header as the recipient of the reply.  If unset, it will use the  address
              in  the  From:  header  field instead.  This option is useful for reading a mailing
              list that sets the Reply-To: header field to the list address and you want to  send
              a private message to the author of a message.

       reply_with_xorig
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This  variable  provides  a toggle. When active, the From: header will be extracted
              from the current  mail's  `X-Original-To:'  header.  This  setting  does  not  have
              precedence over “reverse_realname”.

              Assuming  `fast_reply'  is  disabled,  this  option  will  prompt  the  user with a
              prefilled From: header.

       resolve
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set,  the  cursor  will  be  automatically  advanced  to  the  next  (possibly
              undeleted)  message  whenever  a  command  that  modifies  the  current  message is
              executed.

       resume_draft_files
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, draft files (specified by -H on the command line) are  processed  similarly
              to  when resuming a postponed message.  Recipients are not prompted for; send-hooks
              are not evaluated;  no  alias  expansion  takes  place;  user-defined  headers  and
              signatures are not added to the message.

       resume_edited_draft_files
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  draft  files  previously edited (via -E -H on the command line) will have
              $resume_draft_files automatically set when they are used as a draft file again.

              The  first  time  a  draft  file   is   saved,   NeoMutt   will   add   a   header,
              X-Mutt-Resume-Draft to the saved file.  The next time the draft file is read in, if
              NeoMutt sees the header, it will set $resume_draft_files.

              This option is designed to prevent multiple signatures, user-defined  headers,  and
              other processing effects from being made multiple times to the draft file.

       reverse_alias
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This variable controls whether or not NeoMutt will display the “personal” name from
              your aliases in the index menu if it finds an  alias  that  matches  the  message's
              sender.  For example, if you have the following alias:

              alias juser abd30425@somewhere.net (Joe User)

              and then you receive mail which contains the following header:

              From: abd30425@somewhere.net

              It   would   be   displayed   in   the   index   menu  as  “Joe  User”  instead  of
              “abd30425@somewhere.net.”  This is useful when the person's e-mail address  is  not
              human friendly.

       reverse_name
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              It  may  sometimes  arrive  that  you  receive  mail to a certain machine, move the
              messages to another machine, and reply to some the messages from  there.   If  this
              variable  is  set,  the default From: line of the reply messages is built using the
              address where you received the messages you are replying to if that address matches
              your  “alternates”.   If  the  variable is unset, or the address that would be used
              doesn't match your “alternates”, the From:  line  will  use  your  address  on  the
              current machine.

              Also see the “alternates” command.

       reverse_realname
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This  variable  fine-tunes  the  behavior of the $reverse_name feature.  When it is
              set, NeoMutt will use the address from incoming messages as-is, possibly  including
              eventual  real  names.  When it is unset, NeoMutt will override any such real names
              with the setting of the $realname variable.

       rfc2047_parameters
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When this variable is set, NeoMutt will decode RFC2047-encoded MIME parameters. You
              want  to  set  this variable when NeoMutt suggests you to save attachments to files
              named like:

              =?iso-8859-1?Q?file=5F=E4=5F991116=2Ezip?=

              When this variable is set interactively, the  change  won't  be  active  until  you
              change folders.

              Note  that this use of RFC2047's encoding is explicitly prohibited by the standard,
              but nevertheless encountered in the wild.

              Also note that setting this  parameter  will  not  have  the  effect  that  NeoMutt
              generates  this  kind  of  encoding.  Instead, NeoMutt will unconditionally use the
              encoding specified in RFC2231.

       save_address
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, NeoMutt will take the sender's full address when choosing a default  folder
              for  saving  a  mail. If $save_name or $force_name is set too, the selection of the
              Fcc folder will be changed as well.

       save_empty
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When unset, mailboxes which contain no saved messages will be removed  when  closed
              (the  exception is $spoolfile which is never removed).  If set, mailboxes are never
              removed.

              Note: This only applies to mbox and MMDF folders, NeoMutt does not  delete  MH  and
              Maildir directories.

       save_history
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              This  variable  controls  the  size  of  the  history  (per  category) saved in the
              $history_file file.

       save_name
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This variable controls how copies of outgoing messages  are  saved.   When  set,  a
              check  is  made to see if a mailbox specified by the recipient address exists (this
              is done by searching for a mailbox in the $folder directory with the username  part
              of  the  recipient  address).   If the mailbox exists, the outgoing message will be
              saved to that mailbox, otherwise the message is saved to the $record mailbox.

              Also see the $force_name variable.

       save_unsubscribed
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, info about unsubscribed newsgroups will be saved into “newsrc”  file  and
              into cache.

       score
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  this  variable  is  unset,  scoring  is  turned  off.   This can be useful to
              selectively disable scoring for certain folders  when  the  $score_threshold_delete
              variable and related are used.

       score_threshold_delete
              Type: number
              Default: -1

              Messages  which have been assigned a score equal to or lower than the value of this
              variable are automatically marked for deletion by NeoMutt.   Since  NeoMutt  scores
              are always greater than or equal to zero, the default setting of this variable will
              never mark a message for deletion.

       score_threshold_flag
              Type: number
              Default: 9999

              Messages which have been assigned a score greater than or equal to this  variable's
              value are automatically marked "flagged".

       score_threshold_read
              Type: number
              Default: -1

              Messages  which have been assigned a score equal to or lower than the value of this
              variable are automatically marked as read by NeoMutt.   Since  NeoMutt  scores  are
              always  greater  than  or  equal to zero, the default setting of this variable will
              never mark a message read.

       search_context
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              For the pager, this variable specifies the number  of  lines  shown  before  search
              results. By default, search results will be top-aligned.

       send_charset
              Type: string
              Default: "us-ascii:iso-8859-1:utf-8"

              A  colon-delimited  list  of character sets for outgoing messages. NeoMutt will use
              the first character set into which the text can  be  converted  exactly.   If  your
              $charset  is  not  “iso-8859-1”  and  recipients  may not understand “UTF-8”, it is
              advisable to include in the list an appropriate widely used standard character  set
              (such  as  “iso-8859-2”,  “koi8-r”  or  “iso-2022-jp”)  either  instead of or after
              “iso-8859-1”.

              In case the text cannot be converted  into  one  of  these  exactly,  NeoMutt  uses
              $charset as a fallback.

       sendmail
              Type: command
              Default: "/usr/sbin/sendmail -oem -oi"

              Specifies  the program and arguments used to deliver mail sent by NeoMutt.  NeoMutt
              expects that the specified program interprets  additional  arguments  as  recipient
              addresses.   NeoMutt  appends  all  recipients  after adding a -- delimiter (if not
              already present).  Additional flags, such as for $use_8bitmime, $use_envelope_from,
              $dsn_notify, or $dsn_return will be added before the delimiter.

       sendmail_wait
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              Specifies  the number of seconds to wait for the $sendmail process to finish before
              giving up and putting delivery in the background.

              NeoMutt interprets the value of this variable as follows:
              >0     number of seconds to wait for sendmail to finish before continuing
              0      wait forever for sendmail to finish
              <0     always put sendmail in the background without waiting

              Note that if you specify a value other than 0, the output of the child process will
              be  put  in  a  temporary file.  If there is some error, you will be informed as to
              where to find the output.

       shell
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              Command to use when spawning a subshell.  If not specified, then the  user's  login
              shell from /etc/passwd is used.

       show_multipart_alternative
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              When  set  to  info,  the  multipart/alternative information is shown.  When set to
              inline, all of the alternatives are displayed.  When not set, the default  behavior
              is to show only the chosen alternative.

       show_new_news
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set,  news  server  will  be  asked for new newsgroups on entering the browser.
              Otherwise, it will be done only once for a news server.  Also controls  whether  or
              not number of new articles of subscribed newsgroups will be then checked.

       show_only_unread
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  set,  only subscribed newsgroups that contain unread articles will be displayed
              in browser.

       sidebar_component_depth
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              By default the sidebar will show  the  mailbox's  path,  relative  to  the  $folder
              variable.  This  specifies the number of parent directories to hide from display in
              the sidebar. For example: If a maildir is normally  displayed  in  the  sidebar  as
              dir1/dir2/dir3/maildir,   setting  sidebar_component_depth=2  will  display  it  as
              dir3/maildir, having truncated the 2 highest directories.

              See also: $sidebar_short_path

       sidebar_delim_chars
              Type: string
              Default: "/."

              This contains the list of characters which  you  would  like  to  treat  as  folder
              separators for displaying paths in the sidebar.

              Local mail is often arranged in directories: `dir1/dir2/mailbox'.

              set sidebar_delim_chars='/'

              IMAP mailboxes are often named: `folder1.folder2.mailbox'.

              set sidebar_delim_chars='.'

              See also: $sidebar_short_path, $sidebar_folder_indent, $sidebar_indent_string.

       sidebar_divider_char
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This  specifies  the  characters to be drawn between the sidebar (when visible) and
              the other NeoMutt panels. ASCII and Unicode line-drawing characters are supported.

       sidebar_folder_indent
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Set this to indent mailboxes in the sidebar.

              See also: $sidebar_short_path, $sidebar_indent_string, $sidebar_delim_chars.

       sidebar_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%B%*  %n"

              This variable allows you to customize the sidebar display. This string  is  similar
              to $index_format, but has its own set of printf(3)-like sequences:
              %B     Name of the mailbox
              %S     * Size of mailbox (total number of messages)
              %N     * Number of unread messages in the mailbox
              %n     N if mailbox has new mail, blank otherwise
              %F     * Number of Flagged messages in the mailbox
              %!     “!”  :  one  flagged  message; “!!” : two flagged messages; “n!” : n flagged
                     messages (for n > 2).  Otherwise prints nothing.
              %d     * @ Number of deleted messages
              %L     * @ Number of messages after limiting
              %t     * @ Number of tagged messages
              %>X    right justify the rest of the string and pad with “X”
              %|X    pad to the end of the line with “X”
              %*X    soft-fill with character “X” as pad

              * = Can be optionally printed if nonzero @ = Only applicable to the current folder

              In order to use %S, %N, %F, and %!, $mail_check_stats must be set.  When thus  set,
              a suggested value for this option is "%B%?F? [%F]?%* %?N?%N/?%S".

       sidebar_indent_string
              Type: string
              Default: "  "

              This  specifies  the  string  that  is used to indent mailboxes in the sidebar.  It
              defaults to two spaces.

              See also: $sidebar_short_path, $sidebar_folder_indent, $sidebar_delim_chars.

       sidebar_new_mail_only
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, the sidebar will only display mailboxes containing new, or flagged, mail.

              See also: sidebar_whitelist.

       sidebar_next_new_wrap
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, the <sidebar-next-new> command will not stop and the end of the  list  of
              mailboxes,  but  wrap  around  to  the beginning. The <sidebar-prev-new> command is
              similarly affected, wrapping around to the end of the list.

       sidebar_on_right
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, the sidebar will appear on the right-hand side of the screen.

       sidebar_short_path
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              By default the sidebar will show  the  mailbox's  path,  relative  to  the  $folder
              variable.  Setting  sidebar_shortpath=yes  will  shorten  the names relative to the
              previous name. Here's an example:
              shortpath=no
                     shortpath=yes shortpath=yes, folderindent=yes, indentstr=".."
              fruit  fruit fruit
              fruit.apple
                     apple ..apple
              fruit.banana
                     banana ..banana
              fruit.cherry
                     cherry ..cherry

              See  also:  $sidebar_delim_chars,  $sidebar_folder_indent,  $sidebar_indent_string,
              $sidebar_component_depth.

       sidebar_sort_method
              Type: sort order
              Default: order

              Specifies  how  to  sort  entries in the file browser.  By default, the entries are
              sorted alphabetically.  Valid values:
              ‐ alpha (alphabetically)
              ‐ count (all message count)
              ‐ flagged (flagged message count)
              ‐ name (alphabetically)
              ‐ new (unread message count)
              ‐ path (alphabetically)
              ‐ unread (unread message count)
              ‐ unsorted

              You may optionally use the “reverse-”  prefix  to  specify  reverse  sorting  order
              (example: “set sort_browser=reverse-date”).

       sidebar_visible
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This specifies whether or not to show sidebar. The sidebar shows a list of all your
              mailboxes.

              See also: $sidebar_format, $sidebar_width

       sidebar_width
              Type: number
              Default: 30

              This controls the width of the sidebar.  It is measured  in  screen  columns.   For
              example:  sidebar_width=20  could  display  20  ASCII  characters,  or  10  Chinese
              characters.

       sig_dashes
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If set, a line containing “-- ” (note the trailing space) will be  inserted  before
              your  $signature.   It  is  strongly  recommended  that you not unset this variable
              unless your signature contains just your name.  The reason for this is because many
              software  packages  use “-- \n” to detect your signature.  For example, NeoMutt has
              the ability to highlight the signature in a different color in the built-in pager.

       sig_on_top
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, the signature will be included before any quoted or forwarded text.  It  is
              strongly  recommended that you do not set this variable unless you really know what
              you are doing, and are prepared to take some heat from netiquette guardians.

       signature
              Type: path
              Default: "~/.signature"

              Specifies the filename of  your  signature,  which  is  appended  to  all  outgoing
              messages.    If the filename ends with a pipe (“|”), it is assumed that filename is
              a shell command and input should be read from its standard output.

       simple_search
              Type: string
              Default: "~f %s | ~s %s"

              Specifies how NeoMutt should expand a simple search into a real search pattern.   A
              simple  search  is one that does not contain any of the “~” pattern operators.  See
              “patterns” for more information on search patterns.

              For example, if you simply type “joe” at a search or  limit  prompt,  NeoMutt  will
              automatically  expand  it to the value specified by this variable by replacing “%s”
              with the supplied string.  For the default value, “joe” would be expanded  to:  “~f
              joe | ~s joe”.

       skip_quoted_offset
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              Lines  of  quoted  text  that are displayed before the unquoted text after “skip to
              quoted” command (S)

       sleep_time
              Type: number
              Default: 1

              Specifies time,  in  seconds,  to  pause  while  displaying  certain  informational
              messages,  while moving from folder to folder and after expunging messages from the
              current folder.  The default is to pause one second, so a value of  zero  for  this
              option suppresses the pause.

       smart_wrap
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls  the  display of lines longer than the screen width in the internal pager.
              If set, long lines are wrapped at a word boundary.   If  unset,  lines  are  simply
              wrapped at the screen edge. Also see the $markers variable.

       smileys
              Type: regular expression
              Default: "(>From )|(:[-^]?[][)(><}{|/DP])"

              The  pager uses this variable to catch some common false positives of $quote_regex,
              most notably smileys and not consider  a  line  quoted  text  if  it  also  matches
              $smileys. This mostly happens at the beginning of a line.

       smime_ask_cert_label
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This  flag controls whether you want to be asked to enter a label for a certificate
              about to be added to the database or not. It is set by default.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_ca_location
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              This variable contains the name of either a directory, or  a  file  which  contains
              trusted certificates for use with OpenSSL.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_certificates
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              Since  for  S/MIME  there  is no pubring/secring as with PGP, NeoMutt has to handle
              storage and retrieval of keys by itself. This is very basic right now, and keys and
              certificates  are stored in two different directories, both named as the hash-value
              retrieved from OpenSSL. There is an index file which contains mailbox-address keyid
              pairs,  and which can be manually edited. This option points to the location of the
              certificates.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_decrypt_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This   format   string   specifies   a   command   which   is   used   to   decrypt
              application/x-pkcs7-mime attachments.

              The  OpenSSL command formats have their own set of printf(3)-like sequences similar
              to PGP's:
              %f     Expands to the name of a file containing a message.
              %s     Expands to the name of a file containing the signature part
                                of a multipart/signed attachment when verifying it.
              %k     The key-pair specified with $smime_default_key
              %i     Intermediate certificates
              %c     One or more certificate IDs.
              %a     The algorithm used for encryption.
              %d     The message digest algorithm specified with $smime_sign_digest_alg.
              %C     CA location:  Depending on whether $smime_ca_location
                                points to a directory or file, this expands to
                                “-CApath $smime_ca_location” or “-CAfile $smime_ca_location”.

              For examples on how to configure these formats, see the smime.rc  in  the  samples/
              subdirectory  which  has been installed on your system alongside the documentation.
              (S/MIME only)

       smime_decrypt_use_default_key
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If set (default) this  tells  NeoMutt  to  use  the  default  key  for  decryption.
              Otherwise,  if managing multiple certificate-key-pairs, NeoMutt will try to use the
              mailbox-address to determine the key to use. It will ask you to supply a key, if it
              can't find one.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_default_key
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This  is  the default key-pair to use for S/MIME operations, and must be set to the
              keyid (the hash-value that OpenSSL generates) to work properly.

              It will be used for encryption (see $postpone_encrypt and $smime_self_encrypt).

              It will be used for decryption unless $smime_decrypt_use_default_key is unset.

              It will also be used for signing unless $smime_sign_as is set.

              The (now deprecated) smime_self_encrypt_as is  an  alias  for  this  variable,  and
              should no longer be used.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_encrypt_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to create encrypted S/MIME messages.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command command for possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

              Encrypt the message to $smime_default_key too.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_encrypt_with
              Type: string
              Default: "aes256"

              This sets the algorithm that should be used  for  encryption.   Valid  choices  are
              “aes128”,   “aes192”,  “aes256”,  “des”,  “des3”,  “rc2-40”,  “rc2-64”,  “rc2-128”.
              (S/MIME only)

       smime_get_cert_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to extract X509 certificates from a PKCS7 structure.

              This is a format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_get_cert_email_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This  command  is  used  to  extract  the  mail  address(es)  used for storing X509
              certificates, and for verification purposes (to check whether the  certificate  was
              issued for the sender's mailbox).

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command command for possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_get_signer_cert_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to extract only the signers X509  certificate  from  a  S/MIME
              signature,  so that the certificate's owner may get compared to the email's “From:”
              field.

              This is a format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_import_cert_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to import a certificate via smime_keys.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command command for possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  NOTE: %c and %k will default to $smime_sign_as  if  set,
              otherwise $smime_default_key.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_is_default
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              The  default  behavior  of  NeoMutt  is  to  use  PGP  on  all auto-sign/encryption
              operations. To override and to use OpenSSL instead this must be set.  However, this
              has  no  effect  while  replying,  since NeoMutt will automatically select the same
              application that was used to sign/encrypt the original message.   (Note  that  this
              variable can be overridden by unsetting $crypt_autosmime.)  (S/MIME only)

       smime_keys
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              Since  for  S/MIME  there  is no pubring/secring as with PGP, NeoMutt has to handle
              storage and retrieval of keys/certs by itself. This is very basic  right  now,  and
              stores  keys  and  certificates  in  two  different  directories, both named as the
              hash-value  retrieved  from  OpenSSL.  There  is  an  index  file  which   contains
              mailbox-address keyid pair, and which can be manually edited. This option points to
              the location of the private keys.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_pk7out_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to extract PKCS7 structures of S/MIME signatures, in order  to
              extract the public X509 certificate(s).

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command command for possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_self_encrypt
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, S/MIME encrypted messages will also be encrypted using the certificate in
              $smime_default_key.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_sign_as
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              If  you  have a separate key to use for signing, you should set this to the signing
              key. Most people will only need to set $smime_default_key.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_sign_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to created S/MIME signatures of type  multipart/signed,  which
              can be read by all mail clients.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command command for possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_sign_digest_alg
              Type: string
              Default: "sha256"

              This sets the algorithm that should be  used  for  the  signature  message  digest.
              Valid  choices  are “md5”, “sha1”, “sha224”, “sha256”, “sha384”, “sha512”.  (S/MIME
              only)

       smime_timeout
              Type: number (long)
              Default: 300

              The number of seconds after which a cached passphrase  will  expire  if  not  used.
              (S/MIME only)

       smime_verify_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to verify S/MIME signatures of type multipart/signed.

              This  is  a  format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command command for possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

       smime_verify_opaque_command
              Type: command
              Default: ""

              This command is used to verify S/MIME signatures of type application/x-pkcs7-mime.

              This is a format  string,  see  the  $smime_decrypt_command  command  for  possible
              printf(3)-like sequences.  (S/MIME only)

              Note:  On Debian systems, this defaults to the first existing file in the following
              list:              ~/.smime/ca-certificates.crt              ~/.smime/ca-bundle.crt
              /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt.

       smtp_authenticators
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              This is a colon-delimited list of authentication methods NeoMutt may attempt to use
              to log in to an SMTP server, in the order NeoMutt should try them.   Authentication
              methods are any SASL mechanism, e.g. “plain”, “digest-md5”, “gssapi” or “cram-md5”.
              This option is case-insensitive. If it is “unset” (the default)  NeoMutt  will  try
              all  available  methods, in order from most-secure to least-secure. Support for the
              “plain” mechanism is bundled; other mechanisms are provided  by  an  external  SASL
              library (look for +USE_SASL in the output of neomutt -v).

              Example:

              set smtp_authenticators="digest-md5:cram-md5"

       smtp_pass
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Specifies  the  password  for your SMTP account.  If unset, NeoMutt will prompt you
              for your password when you first send mail via SMTP.  See  $smtp_url  to  configure
              NeoMutt to send mail via SMTP.

              Warning:  you  should only use this option when you are on a fairly secure machine,
              because the superuser can read your neomuttrc even if you are the only one who  can
              read the file.

       smtp_url
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Defines  the  SMTP  smarthost where sent messages should relayed for delivery. This
              should take the form of an SMTP URL, e.g.:

              smtp[s]://[user[:pass]@]host[:port]

              where “[...]” denotes an optional part.  Setting this variable overrides the  value
              of the $sendmail variable.

       sort
              Type: sort order
              Default: date

              Specifies how to sort messages in the “index” menu.  Valid values are:
              ‐ date or date-sent
              ‐ date-received
              ‐ from
              ‐ mailbox-order (unsorted)
              ‐ score
              ‐ size
              ‐ spam
              ‐ subject
              ‐ threads
              ‐ to

              You may optionally use the “reverse-” prefix to specify reverse sorting order.

              Example:

              set sort=reverse-date-sent

       sort_alias
              Type: sort order
              Default: alias

              Specifies  how the entries in the “alias” menu are sorted.  The following are legal
              values:
              ‐ address (sort alphabetically by email address)
              ‐ alias (sort alphabetically by alias name)
              ‐ unsorted (leave in order specified in .neomuttrc)

       sort_aux
              Type: sort order
              Default: date

              When sorting by threads, this variable controls how threads are sorted in  relation
              to other threads, and how the branches of the thread trees are sorted.  This can be
              set to any value that $sort can, except “threads” (in that case, NeoMutt will  just
              use  “date-sent”).   You  can  also  specify  the “last-” prefix in addition to the
              “reverse-” prefix, but “last-” must come  after  “reverse-”.   The  “last-”  prefix
              causes messages to be sorted against its siblings by which has the last descendant,
              using the rest of $sort_aux as an ordering.  For instance,

              set sort_aux=last-date-received

              would mean that if a new message is received in a thread, that thread  becomes  the
              last one displayed (or the first, if you have “set sort=reverse-threads”.)

              Note:  For reversed $sort order $sort_aux is reversed again (which is not the right
              thing to do, but kept to not break any existing configuration setting).

       sort_browser
              Type: sort order
              Default: alpha

              Specifies how to sort entries in the file browser.  By  default,  the  entries  are
              sorted alphabetically.  Valid values:
              ‐ alpha (alphabetically)
              ‐ count (all message count)
              ‐ date
              ‐ desc (description)
              ‐ new (new message count)
              ‐ size
              ‐ unsorted

              You  may  optionally  use  the  “reverse-”  prefix to specify reverse sorting order
              (example: “set sort_browser=reverse-date”).

       sort_re
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This variable is only useful when sorting by  mailboxes  in  sidebar.  By  default,
              entries are unsorted.  Valid values:
              ‐ count (all message count)
              ‐ desc  (virtual mailbox description)
              ‐ new (new message count)
              ‐ path
              ‐ unsorted

       spam_separator
              Type: string
              Default: ","

              This  variable  controls  what  happens  when multiple spam headers are matched: if
              unset, each successive header will overwrite any previous  matches  value  for  the
              spam  label.  If set, each successive match will append to the previous, using this
              variable's value as a separator.

       spoolfile
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              If your spool mailbox is in a non-default place where NeoMutt cannot find  it,  you
              can specify its location with this variable.

              If  not  specified,  then  the  environment  variables  $MAIL  and $MAILDIR will be
              checked.

       ssl_ca_certificates_file
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              This variable specifies a file containing  trusted  CA  certificates.   Any  server
              certificate  that is signed with one of these CA certificates is also automatically
              accepted. (GnuTLS only)

              Example:

              set ssl_ca_certificates_file=/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

              Note: On Debian systems, this option is set by default to “threads” in /etc/Muttrc.

       ssl_ciphers
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Contains a colon-separated list of ciphers to use when using SSL.  For OpenSSL, see
              ciphers(1) for the syntax of the string.

              For  GnuTLS,  this  option  will  be  used in place of "NORMAL" at the start of the
              priority string.  See gnutls_priority_init(3) for  the  syntax  and  more  details.
              (Note: GnuTLS version 2.1.7 or higher is required.)

       ssl_client_cert
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              The file containing a client certificate and its associated private key.

       ssl_force_tls
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If  this  variable  is  set,  NeoMutt  will  require that all connections to remote
              servers be encrypted. Furthermore it will attempt to  negotiate  TLS  even  if  the
              server  does  not  advertise the capability, since it would otherwise have to abort
              the connection anyway. This option supersedes $ssl_starttls.

       ssl_min_dh_prime_bits
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              This variable specifies the minimum acceptable prime size (in bits) for use in  any
              Diffie-Hellman  key  exchange.  A  value  of 0 will use the default from the GNUTLS
              library. (GnuTLS only)

       ssl_starttls
              Type: quadoption
              Default: yes

              If set (the default), NeoMutt will attempt to use STARTTLS on  servers  advertising
              the  capability. When unset, NeoMutt will not attempt to use STARTTLS regardless of
              the server's capabilities.

       ssl_use_sslv3
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              This variable specifies whether to attempt to use SSLv3 in the  SSL  authentication
              process.  Note  that  SSLv2 and SSLv3 are now considered fundamentally insecure and
              are no longer recommended.

       ssl_use_tlsv1
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This variable specifies whether to attempt to use TLSv1.0 in the SSL authentication
              process.

       ssl_use_tlsv1_1
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This variable specifies whether to attempt to use TLSv1.1 in the SSL authentication
              process.

       ssl_use_tlsv1_2
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              This variable specifies whether to attempt to use TLSv1.2 in the SSL authentication
              process.

       ssl_verify_dates
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set  (the  default), NeoMutt will not automatically accept a server certificate
              that is either not yet valid or already expired. You should  only  unset  this  for
              particular known hosts, using the <account-hook> function.

       ssl_verify_host
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              If  set  (the  default), NeoMutt will not automatically accept a server certificate
              whose host name does not match the host used in your folder URL.  You  should  only
              unset this for particular known hosts, using the <account-hook> function.

       status_chars
              Type: string
              Default: "-*%A"

              Controls the characters used by the “%r” indicator in $status_format.
              Character
                     Default Description
              1      - Mailbox is unchanged
              2      * Mailbox has been changed and needs to be resynchronized
              3      %  Mailbox  is  read-only,  or  will  not be written when exiting.  (You can
                     toggle whether to  write  changes  to  a  mailbox  with  the  <toggle-write>
                     operation, bound by default to “%”)
              4      A  Folder opened in attach-message mode.  (Certain operations like composing
                     a new mail, replying, forwarding, etc. are not permitted in this mode)

       status_format
              Type: string
              Default: "-%r-NeoMutt: %f [Msgs:%?M?%M/?%m%?n? New:%n?%?o? Old:%o?%?d? Del:%d?%?F? Flag:%F?%?t? Tag:%t?%?p? Post:%p?%?b? Inc:%b?%?l? %l?]---(%s/%S)-%>-(%P)---"

              Controls the format of the status line displayed in the “index” menu.  This  string
              is similar to $index_format, but has its own set of printf(3)-like sequences:
              %b     Number of mailboxes with new mail *
              %d     Number of deleted messages *
              %f     The full pathname of the current mailbox
              %F     Number of flagged messages *
              %h     Local hostname
              %l     Size (in bytes) of the current mailbox *
              %L     Size  (in bytes) of the messages shown (i.e., which match the current limit)
                     *
              %m     The number of messages in the mailbox *
              %M     The number of messages shown (i.e., which match the current limit) *
              %n     Number of new messages in the mailbox *
              %o     Number of old unread messages *
              %p     Number of postponed messages *
              %P     Percentage of the way through the index
              %r     Modified/read-only/won't-write/attach-message   indicator,   According    to
                     $status_chars
              %R     Number of read messages *
              %s     Current sorting mode ($sort)
              %S     Current aux sorting method ($sort_aux)
              %t     Number of tagged messages *
              %u     Number of unread messages *
              %v     NeoMutt version string
              %V     Currently active limit pattern, if any *
              %>X    Right justify the rest of the string and pad with “X”
              %|X    Pad to the end of the line with “X”
              %*X    Soft-fill with character “X” as pad

              For an explanation of “soft-fill”, see the $index_format documentation.

              * = can be optionally printed if nonzero

              Some of the above sequences can be used to optionally print a string if their value
              is nonzero.  For example, you may only want to see the number of  flagged  messages
              if  such  messages exist, since zero is not particularly meaningful.  To optionally
              print a string based upon one of the above sequences, the  following  construct  is
              used:

              %?<sequence_char>?<optional_string>?

              where sequence_char is a character from the table above, and optional_string is the
              string you would like printed if sequence_char  is  nonzero.   optional_string  may
              contain  other  sequences  as  well  as  normal text, but you may not nest optional
              strings.

              Here is an example illustrating how to optionally print the number of new  messages
              in a mailbox:

              %?n?%n new messages.?

              You can also switch between two strings using the following construct:

              %?<sequence_char>?<if_string>&<else_string>?

              If  the  value  of sequence_char is non-zero, if_string will be expanded, otherwise
              else_string will be expanded.

              You can force the  result  of  any  printf(3)-like  sequence  to  be  lowercase  by
              prefixing  the  sequence  character with an underscore (“_”) sign.  For example, if
              you want to display the local hostname in lowercase, you would use: “%_h”.

              If you prefix the sequence character with a colon  (“:”)  character,  NeoMutt  will
              replace  any  dots in the expansion by underscores. This might be helpful with IMAP
              folders that don't like dots in folder names.

       status_on_top
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Setting this variable causes the “status bar” to be displayed on the first line  of
              the screen rather than near the bottom. If $help is set, too it'll be placed at the
              bottom.

       strict_threads
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, threading will only make use of the “In-Reply-To” and “References:”  fields
              when  you $sort by message threads.  By default, messages with the same subject are
              grouped together in “pseudo threads.”. This may not always be desirable, such as in
              a  personal  mailbox  where  you  might  have  several  unrelated messages with the
              subjects like “hi” which will get grouped together. See also $sort_re  for  a  less
              drastic way of controlling this behavior.

       suspend
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  unset,  NeoMutt  won't  stop  when  the user presses the terminal's susp key,
              usually “^Z”. This is useful if you run NeoMutt inside an  xterm  using  a  command
              like “xterm -e neomutt”.

       text_flowed
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  generate  “format=flowed”  bodies with a content type of
              “text/plain; format=flowed”.  This format is easier  to  handle  for  some  mailing
              software,  and  generally  just  looks like ordinary text.  To actually make use of
              this format's features, you'll need support in your editor.

              Note that $indent_string is ignored when this option is set.

       thorough_search
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Affects the ~b and ~h search operations described in section “patterns”.   If  set,
              the  headers  and  body/attachments  of  messages to be searched are decoded before
              searching. If unset, messages are searched as they appear in the folder.

              Users searching attachments or for  non-ASCII  characters  should  set  this  value
              because  decoding  also  includes  MIME parsing/decoding and possible character set
              conversions. Otherwise NeoMutt will  attempt  to  match  against  the  raw  message
              received  (for  example quoted-printable encoded or with encoded headers) which may
              lead to incorrect search results.

       thread_received
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When set, NeoMutt uses the date received  rather  than  the  date  sent  to  thread
              messages by subject.

       tilde
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set, the internal-pager will pad blank lines to the bottom of the screen with
              a tilde (“~”).

       time_inc
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              Along  with  $read_inc,  $write_inc,  and  $net_inc,  this  variable  controls  the
              frequency  with  which  progress  updates are displayed. It suppresses updates less
              than $time_inc milliseconds apart. This can improve throughput on systems with slow
              terminals, or when running NeoMutt on a remote system.

              Also see the “tuning” section of the manual for performance considerations.

       timeout
              Type: number
              Default: 600

              When  NeoMutt is waiting for user input either idling in menus or in an interactive
              prompt, NeoMutt would block until input is present. Depending on the context,  this
              would  prevent  certain  operations  from  working,  like  checking for new mail or
              keeping an IMAP connection alive.

              This variable controls how many seconds NeoMutt will at most wait until  it  aborts
              waiting for input, performs these operations and continues to wait for input.

              A value of zero or less will cause NeoMutt to never time out.

       tmpdir
              Type: path
              Default: "/tmp"

              This  variable  allows  you to specify where NeoMutt will place its temporary files
              needed for displaying and composing messages.

              If this variable is not set, the environment variable  $TMPDIR  is  used.   Failing
              that, then “/tmp” is used.

       to_chars
              Type: string
              Default: " +TCFL"

              Controls the character used to indicate mail addressed to you.
              Character
                     Default Description
              1      <space> The mail is not addressed to your address.
              2      + You are the only recipient of the message.
              3      T  Your  address appears in the “To:” header field, but you are not the only
                     recipient of the message.
              4      C Your address is specified in the “Cc:” header field, but you are  not  the
                     only recipient.
              5      F Indicates the mail that was sent by you.
              6      L Indicates the mail was sent to a mailing-list you subscribe to.

       trash
              Type: path
              Default: ""

              If set, this variable specifies the path of the trash folder where the mails marked
              for deletion will be moved, instead of being irremediably purged.

              NOTE: When you delete a message in the trash folder, it is really deleted, so  that
              you have a way to clean the trash.

       ts_enabled
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Controls whether NeoMutt tries to set the terminal status line and icon name.  Most
              terminal emulators emulate the status line in the window title.

       ts_icon_format
              Type: string
              Default: "M%?n?AIL&ail?"

              Controls the format of the icon title, as  long  as  “$ts_enabled”  is  set.   This
              string is identical in formatting to the one used by “$status_format”.

       ts_status_format
              Type: string
              Default: "NeoMutt with %?m?%m messages&no messages?%?n? [%n NEW]?"

              Controls  the  format  of the terminal status line (or window title), provided that
              “$ts_enabled” has been set. This string is identical in formatting to the one  used
              by “$status_format”.

       tunnel
              Type: string
              Default: ""

              Setting  this  variable will cause NeoMutt to open a pipe to a command instead of a
              raw socket. You may be able to use this to set up preauthenticated  connections  to
              your IMAP/POP3/SMTP server. Example:

              set tunnel="ssh -q mailhost.net /usr/local/libexec/imapd"

              Note:  For  this  example  to work you must be able to log in to the remote machine
              without having to enter a password.

              When set, NeoMutt uses the tunnel for all remote connections.  Please see “account-
              hook” in the manual for how to use different tunnel commands per connection.

       uncollapse_jump
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will jump to the next unread message, if any, when the current
              thread is uncollapsed.

       uncollapse_new
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, NeoMutt will automatically uncollapse any collapsed thread that  receives
              a new message. When unset, collapsed threads will remain collapsed. the presence of
              the new message will still affect index sorting, though.

       use_8bitmime
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              Warning: do not set this variable unless you are using a version of sendmail  which
              supports  the  -B8BITMIME  flag  (such as sendmail 8.8.x) or you may not be able to
              send mail.

              When set, NeoMutt will invoke $sendmail with the -B8BITMIME flag when sending 8-bit
              messages to enable ESMTP negotiation.

       use_domain
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  qualify  all  local  addresses (ones without the “@host”
              portion) with the value of $hostname.  If unset, no addresses will be qualified.

       use_envelope_from
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  set  the   envelope   sender   of   the   message.    If
              $envelope_from_address  is  set,  it  will be used as the sender address. If unset,
              NeoMutt will attempt to derive the sender from the “From:” header.

              Note that this information is passed to sendmail command using the -f command  line
              switch.  Therefore  setting  this  option  is  not useful if the $sendmail variable
              already contains -f or if the executable pointed to by  $sendmail  doesn't  support
              the -f switch.

       use_from
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When set, NeoMutt will generate the “From:” header field when sending messages.  If
              unset, no “From:” header field will be generated unless the  user  explicitly  sets
              one using the “my_hdr” command.

       use_ipv6
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will look for IPv6 addresses of hosts it tries to contact.  If
              this option is unset, NeoMutt will restrict itself to  IPv4  addresses.   Normally,
              the default should work.

       user_agent
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set, NeoMutt will add a “User-Agent:” header to outgoing messages, indicating
              which version of NeoMutt was used for composing them.

       vfolder_format
              Type: string
              Default: "%2C %?n?%4n/&     ?%4m %f"

              This variable allows you to customize the file browser display for virtual  folders
              to   your  personal  taste.   This  string  uses  many  of  the  same  expandos  as
              $folder_format.

       virtual_spoolfile
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              When  set,  NeoMutt   will   use   the   first   defined   virtual   mailbox   (see
              virtual-mailboxes) as a spool file.

       visual
              Type: command
              Default: "vi"

              Specifies  the  visual  editor  to  invoke  when  the  “~v” command is given in the
              built-in editor.

              $visual is overridden by the environment variable $VISUAL or $EDITOR.

       wait_key
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls whether NeoMutt will ask you to press a key after an external command  has
              been  invoked  by  these  functions:  <shell-escape>, <pipe-message>, <pipe-entry>,
              <print-message>, and <print-entry> commands.

              It is also used when  viewing  attachments  with  “auto_view”,  provided  that  the
              corresponding  mailcap  entry has a needsterminal flag, and the external program is
              interactive.

              When set, NeoMutt will always ask for a key. When unset, NeoMutt will  wait  for  a
              key only if the external command returned a non-zero status.

       weed
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              When  set,  NeoMutt  will  weed  headers  when displaying, forwarding, printing, or
              replying to messages.

       wrap
              Type: number
              Default: 0

              When set to a positive value, NeoMutt will wrap text at $wrap characters.  When set
              to  a  negative value, NeoMutt will wrap text so that there are $wrap characters of
              empty space on the right side of the terminal. Setting it  to  zero  makes  NeoMutt
              wrap at the terminal width.

              Also see $reflow_wrap.

       wrap_headers
              Type: number
              Default: 78

              This  option  specifies  the  number  of characters to use for wrapping an outgoing
              message's headers. Allowed values are between 78 and 998 inclusive.

              Note: This option usually shouldn't be changed. RFC5233 recommends a line length of
              78  (the  default),  so  please  only change this setting when you know what you're
              doing.

       wrap_search
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls whether searches wrap around the end.

              When set, searches  will  wrap  around  the  first  (or  last)  item.  When  unset,
              incremental searches will not wrap.

       write_bcc
              Type: boolean
              Default: yes

              Controls whether NeoMutt writes out the “Bcc:” header when preparing messages to be
              sent.  Exim users may wish to unset this. If NeoMutt is set to deliver directly via
              SMTP  (see  $smtp_url),  this option does nothing: NeoMutt will never write out the
              “Bcc:” header in this case.

              Note: On Debian systems, exim4 and postfix strip BCC headers by default. The  above
              warning applies to exim3 users, see /etc/Muttrc.

       write_inc
              Type: number
              Default: 10

              When  writing  a  mailbox,  a  message will be printed every $write_inc messages to
              indicate progress.  If set to 0, only a single message  will  be  displayed  before
              writing a mailbox.

              Also  see  the $read_inc, $net_inc and $time_inc variables and the “tuning” section
              of the manual for performance considerations.

       x_comment_to
              Type: boolean
              Default: no

              If set, NeoMutt will add “X-Comment-To:” field (that contains full name of original
              article author) to article that followuped to newsgroup.
