Mutt


Mutt is a fast, flexible, console-based (meaning remote access is easy) email tool. It has many handlers and mail management capabilities with built-in cryptography and signing capabilities. It supports scoring, multiple mailbox formats, and many handy accelerators.

Usage:

Select all messages dated July: T~d 1/7-31/7

To execute a command on all tagged mesages (e.g., delete using d, save using s, etc), precede it with a semicolon (';'). For example, to save all messages in the current folder to another folder:

  T.*<ENTER>
  ;s~/saved-messages<ENTER>

This can be useful as a quick mechanism to save from GNU/Linux “From” mail folder format to a Maildir folder format.

Toggle the hiding of threads: Esc-V

Attach a mail message: A, navigate to message, tq.
