NAME

       notmuch-hooks - hooks for notmuch

SYNOPSIS

       $DATABASEDIR/.notmuch/hooks/*

DESCRIPTION

       Hooks  are  scripts  (or  arbitrary  executables or symlinks to such) that notmuch invokes
       before and after certain actions. These scripts reside  in  the  .notmuch/hooks  directory
       within the database directory and must have executable permissions.

       The currently available hooks are described below.

       pre-new
              This  hook  is invoked by the new command before scanning or importing new messages
              into the database. If this hook exits with a non-zero status,  notmuch  will  abort
              further processing of the new command.

              Typically this hook is used for fetching or delivering new mail to be imported into
              the database.

       post-new
              This hook is invoked by the new command after new messages have been imported  into
              the  database and initial tags have been applied. The hook will not be run if there
              have been any errors during the scan or import.

              Typically this hook is used  to  perform  additional  query-based  tagging  on  the
              imported messages.

       post-insert
              This  hook  is  invoked by the insert command after the message has been delivered,
              added to the database, and initial tags have been applied. The hook will not be run
              if  there  have  been  any  errors during the message delivery; what is regarded as
              successful delivery depends on the --keep option.

              Typically this hook is used  to  perform  additional  query-based  tagging  on  the
              delivered messages.
