       Alot  is  a  terminal-based  mail  user  agent for the notmuch mail system.  It features a
       modular and command prompt driven interface  to  provide  a  full  MUA  experience  as  an
       alternative to the Emacs mode shipped with notmuch.


       The  arrow  keys,  page-up/down,  j,  k  and  Space can be used to move the focus.  Escape
       cancels prompts and Enter selects. Hit : at any time and type in commands to the prompt.

       The interface shows one buffer at a time, you can use Tab and Shift-Tab to switch  between
       them, close the current buffer with d and list them all with ;.

       The  buffer  type  or mode (displayed at the bottom left) determines which prompt commands
       are available. Usage information on any command can be listed by typing  help  YOURCOMMAND
       to the prompt; The key bindings for the current mode are listed upon pressing ?.
