update a saved search


lei up [Options] OUTPUT

lei up [Options] --all[=<local|remote>]


Update the saved search at OUTPUT or all saved searches.



--all updates all saved searches (listed in lei-ls-search(1)). --all=local only updates local mailboxes, --all=remote only updates remote mailboxes (currently imap:// and imaps://).


Look for mail older than the time of the last successful query. Using a small interval will reduce bandwidth use.  A larger interval reduces the likelihood of missing a result due to MTA delays or downtime.

The time(s) of the last successful queries are the lastresult values visible from lei-edit-search(1).

Date formats understood by git-rev-parse(1) may be used. e.g 1.hour or 3.days

Default: 2.days


These disable the use of all externals, local externals, or remote externals respectively.  They are useful during temporary network or mount-point outages.

Unlike lei q, these switches override the original lei q --only options saved as lei.q.only.

The combination --all=remote --no-remote is supported for offline use in case a user is updating an IMAP folder on localhost.


As with lei-q(1), but may also exclude externals originally specified via lei q --only.


--lock, --alert, --mua, and --jobs are all supported and documented in lei-q(1).

--mua is incompatible with --all.
