NAME

       xdg-email - command line tool for sending mail using the user's preferred e-mail composer

SYNOPSIS

       xdg-email [--utf8] [--cc address] [--bcc address] [--subject text] [--body text]
                 [--attach file] [mailto-uri | address(es)]

       xdg-email {--help | --manual | --version}

DESCRIPTION

       xdg-email opens the user's preferred e-mail composer in order to send a mail to
       address(es) or mailto-uri. RFC2368 defines mailto: URIs. xdg-email limits support to, cc,
       subject and body fields in mailto-uri, all other fields are silently ignored.  address(es)
       must follow the syntax of RFC822. Multiple addresses may be provided as separate
       arguments.

       All information provided on the command line is used to prefill corresponding fields in
       the user's e-mail composer. The user will have the opportunity to change any of this
       information before actually sending the e-mail.

       xdg-email is for use inside a desktop session only. It is not recommended to use xdg-email
       as root.

OPTIONS

       --utf8
           Indicates that all command line options that follow are in utf8. Without this option,
           command line options are expected to be encoded according to locale. If the locale
           already specifies utf8 this option has no effect. This option does not affect mailto
           URIs that are passed on the command line.

       --cc address
           Specify a recipient to be copied on the e-mail.

       --bcc address
           Specify a recipient to be blindly copied on the e-mail.

       --subject text
           Specify a subject for the e-mail.

       --body text
           Specify a body for the e-mail. Since the user will be able to make changes before
           actually sending the e-mail, this can be used to provide the user with a template for
           the e-mail.  text may contain linebreaks.

       --attach file
           Specify an attachment for the e-mail.  file must point to an existing file.

           Some e-mail applications require the file to remain present after xdg-email returns.

       --help
           Show command synopsis.

       --manual
           Show this manual page.

       --version
           Show the xdg-utils version information.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       xdg-email honours the following environment variables:

       XDG_UTILS_DEBUG_LEVEL
           Setting this environment variable to a non-zero numerical value makes xdg-email do
           more verbose reporting on stderr. Setting a higher value increases the verbosity.

EXIT CODES

       An exit code of 0 indicates success while a non-zero exit code indicates failure. The
       following failure codes can be returned:

       1
           Error in command line syntax.

       2
           One of the files passed on the command line did not exist.

       3
           A required tool could not be found.

       4
           The action failed.

       5
           No permission to read one of the files passed on the command line.
