notmuch reply [options...] <search-term>...
Constructs a reply template for a set of messages.
To make replying to email easier, notmuch reply takes an existing set
of messages and constructs a suitable mail template. The Reply-to:
header (if any, otherwise From:) is used for the To: address. Unless
--reply-to=sender is specified, values from the To: and Cc: headers are
copied, but not including any of the current user's email addresses (as
configured in primary_mail or other_email in the .notmuch-config file)
in the recipient list.
It also builds a suitable new subject, including Re: at the front (if
not already present), and adding the message IDs of the messages being
replied to to the References list and setting the In-Reply-To: field
Finally, the original contents of the emails are quoted by prefixing
each line with '> ' and included in the body.
The resulting message template is output to stdout.
Supported options for reply include
Includes subject and quoted message body.
Only produces In-Reply-To, References, To, Cc, and Bcc

Replies only to the sender. If replying to user's own

headers in this order, and copy values from the first
that contains something other than only the user's

Note: It is most common to use notmuch reply with a search string
matching a single message, (such as id:<message-id>), but it can be
useful to reply to several messages at once. For example, when a series
of patches are sent in a single thread, replying to the entire thread
allows for the reply to comment on issue found in multiple patches.
