DESCRIPTION

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

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

OPTIONS

       -A alias
              An expanded version of the given alias is passed to stdout.

       -a file [...]
              Attach a file to your message using MIME.  When attaching single
              or multiple files, separating filenames and recipient  addresses
              with  "--" is mandatory, e.g. mutt -a image.jpg -- addr1 or mutt
              -a img.jpg *.png -- addr1 addr2.  The -a option must  be  placed
              at the end of command line options.

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

       -c address
              Specify a carbon-copy (CC) recipient

       -d level
              If  mutt  was  complied  with  +DEBUG  log  debugging  output to
              ~/.muttdebug0.  Level can range from 1-5 and effects  verbosity.
              A value of 2 is recommended.

       -D     Print the value of all configuration options to stdout.

       -e command
              Specify  a  configuration  command to be run after processing of
              initialization files.

       -f mailbox
              Specify which mailbox to load.

       -F muttrc
              Specify an initialization file to read instead of ~/.muttrc

       -h     Display help.

       -H draft
              Specify a draft file which contains header and body  to  use  to
              send a message.

       -i include
              Specify a file to include into the body of a message.

       -m type
              specify a default mailbox type for newly created folders.

       -n     Causes Mutt to bypass the system configuration file.

       -p     Resume a postponed message.

       -Q query
              Query  a  configuration  variables value.  The query is executed
              after all configuration files have been parsed, and any commands
              given on the command line have been executed.

       -R     Open a mailbox in read-only mode.

       -s subject
              Specify the subject of the message.

       -v     Display the Mutt version number and compile-time definitions.

       -vv    Display license and copyright information.

       -x     Emulate the mailx compose mode.

       -y     Start  Mutt  with  a  listing  of all mailboxes specified by the
              mailboxes command.

       -z     When used with -f, causes Mutt not to  start  if  there  are  no
              messages in the mailbox.

       -Z     Causes Mutt to open the first mailbox specified by the mailboxes
              command which contains new mail.

       --     Treat remaining arguments as addr even  if  they  start  with  a
              dash.  See also "-a" above.

BUGS

       None.  Mutts have fleas, not bugs.

FLEAS

       Suspend/resume while editing a file with an external  editor  does  not
       work  under  SunOS 4.x if you use the curses lib in /usr/5lib.  It does
       work with the S-Lang library, however.

       Resizing the screen while using an external pager  causes  Mutt  to  go
       haywire on some systems.

       Suspend/resume does not work under Ultrix.

       The  help  line  for  the  index  menu is not updated if you change the
       bindings for one of the functions listed while Mutt is running.

       For a more up-to-date list of bugs, errm, fleas, please visit the  mutt
       project’s bug tracking system under http://bugs.mutt.org/.
