notmuch-emacs-mua — send mail with notmuch and emacs

Synopsis

notmuch emacs-mua [options …] [<to-address> … | <mailto-url>]

Description

Start composing an email in the Notmuch Emacs UI with the specified subject, recipients, and message body, or mailto: URL.

Supported options for emacs-mua include

-h, --help

Display help.

-s, --subject=<subject>

Specify the subject of the message.

--to=<to-address>

Specify a recipient (To).

-c, --cc=<cc-address>

Specify a carbon-copy (Cc) recipient.

-b, --bcc=<bcc-address>

Specify a blind-carbon-copy (Bcc) recipient.

-i, --body=<file>

Specify a file to include into the body of the message.

--hello

Go to the Notmuch hello screen instead of the message composition window if no message composition parameters are given.

--no-window-system

Even if a window system is available, use the current terminal.

--client

Use emacsclient, rather than emacs. For emacsclient to work, you need an already running Emacs with a server, or use --auto-daemon.

--auto-daemon

Automatically start Emacs in daemon mode, if the Emacs server is not running. Applicable with --client. Implies --create-frame.

--create-frame

Create a new frame instead of trying to use the current Emacs frame. Applicable with --client. This will be required when Emacs is running (or automatically started with --auto-daemon) in daemon mode.

--print

Output the resulting elisp to stdout instead of evaluating it.

The supported positional parameters and short options are a compatible subset of the mutt MUA command-line options. The options and positional parameters modifying the message can’t be combined with the mailto: URL.

Options may be specified multiple times.
