NAME

       notmuch-reply - Constructs a reply template for a set of messages.

SYNOPSIS

       notmuch reply [options...] <search-term>...

DESCRIPTION

       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
       correctly.

       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

              --format=(default|headers-only)

                  default
                      Includes subject and quoted message body.

                  headers-only
                      Only  produces  In-Reply-To, References, To, Cc, and Bcc
                      headers.

              --reply-to=(all|sender)

                  all (default)
                      Replies to all addresses.

                  sender
                      Replies only to the sender. If replying  to  user's  own
                      message  (Reply-to: or From: header is one of the user's
                      configured email addresses),  try  To:,  Cc:,  and  Bcc:
                      headers  in  this  order, and copy values from the first
                      that contains  something  other  than  only  the  user's
                      addresses.

       See  notmuch-search-terms(7)  for  details  of the supported syntax for
       <search-terms>.

       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.
