You can write a macro and bind it to a key, or key sequence. For example, in my muttrc I include this line: macro index \Cs <change-folder> =JWR/INBOX.Sent<enter> go to Sent Items It takes me to my Sent items with Ctrl s 8. You can rename IMAP folder in mutt, while you are changing a folder and you are in the list of folders: 'c?'. (change folder, then use a list of folders). When you are on the folder, which has to been renamed, use 'r' key and you will be asked for the new name of folder. Share I cannot change folder when using Mutt read-only (Mutt -R) This is certainly because you are using macros like this one: macro index,pager <f2> '<sync-mailbox><enter-command>source ~/.mutt/personal<enter><change-folder>!<enter>' This macro tells Mutt to sync (which is a write operation) before switching. Either use the sidebar or set another macro
The change-folder function always prompt for the same mailbox. This is not a bug, this is actually an intended behaviour. See the multiple accounts section for a workaround. I cannot change folder when using Mutt read-only (Mutt -R) This is certainly because you are using macros like this one With the above shortcuts (or with the sidebar) you will find that changing folders (with c by default) is not contextual, i.e. it will not list the folders of the current mailbox, but of the one used the last time you changed folders. To make the behaviour more contextual, the trick is to press = or + for current mailbox
# Macros for switching accounts macro index <f2> '<sync-mailbox><refresh><enter-command>source ~/.mutt/gmail<enter><change-folder>!<enter>' macro index <f3> '<sync-mailbox><refresh><enter-command>source ~/.mutt/fastmail<enter><change-folder>!<enter>' You see that I added the <refresh> just before sourcing the files with unmailboxes. This. . We normally want to be notified of new emails even on idle, without the need to press a key. The variable which governs this behavior is timeout. It takes a value in seconds which is the maximum time to wait for an input from the user Mutt & Maildir Mini-HOWTO Introduction. This document describes how to use the Maildir format with the Mutt MUA.It has technical and performance advantages over the mbox format.. It is supported by MTA's like Exim, Postfix and qmail, MDA's like maildrop and procmail and IMAP4/POP3 servers like Dovecot and Courier to just name a few
Breaking down the parts of the macro: <change-folder> - the change folder prompt in the index menu ? - starts the file browser (the browser menu) <change-dir> - changes the current listed directory in the browser menu -- Kevin J.

Mutt is a low resource, highly configurable command line e-mail client. Mutt itself is just a program for reading email. Combined with a text editor, POP/IMAP mail fetcher, and MTA, Mutt becomes a full fledged e-mail client. Mutt is available in the Debian repositories; # aptitude install mutt. to install it

Thanks for your kicks. system archived August 12, 2020, 9:29am #5. Home ; Categories ; FAQ/Guidelines. Using multiple IMAP accounts with Mutt. Mutt's configuration is sometime more a toolbox than something offering ready solutions, and how to I use multiple accounts? is one of the most FAQs. Here's a condensed version of my setup. In the most simple solution, just 'c'hange folders to the IMAP server: c imaps://imap.example.com <enter> c imaps.
Mutt 1.14 Release Notes. Note: this is a review of some of the more interesting features in this release. For a complete list of changes please be sure to read the UPDATING file. Background Editin Setup Mutt For Gmail. Mutt is a text based mail client. It replaces GUI based programs like Thunderbird on a headless Raspberry Pi for instance. Some people even prefer it over the common GUI based mail programs because of its simplicity and the lack of distracting graphical eye candy Hi mutt experts, I'm fighting an problem with folder-hooks that I did not find a good answer for. I basically have two IMAP accounts in mutt, personal and work. What I would like to do is that if a new mail or reply is written in a in folder (except INBOX), the new mail or the reply should be stored in that folder Notmuch is a mail indexer. Essentially, is a very thin front end on top of xapian.Much like Sup, it focuses on one thing: indexing your email messages.Notmuch can be used as an email reader, or simply as an indexer and search tool for other MUAs, like mutt
Switching accounts is achieved through the shortcut keys assigned in the muttrc file and the y key will let you move between mailboxes. If you run into trouble it can be very helpful to run Mutt in debug mode. This can be done with the command line option and argument mutt -d 2 By default, ^D is bound to delete-thread. This configuration remaps this function to dat (for delete a thread).. By default, ^U is bound to undelete-thread. This default binding is rendered superfluous by this configuration. (By default, deleting a message in mutt only flags it for deletion; until changes are registered with $/sync-mailbox, the actual mailstore remains unaffected. c (change folder) ? (list) d (delete-mailbox) Move a mail to another directory: s (move) Shift+c (copy) Move mails to another directory: t (flag mails) ; (to point out to mutt that we will work with flagged mails) s (move) Searc This will bind the search command to ESC+m (or ALT-m) and then create a change-folder command to go to the search results folder (ESC+f or ALT-f). Mutt itself can be a bit of a beast to setup the first time around. The first thing to do is to create the configuration directory where all of the mutt files will live: ~/.mutt

Hopefully this wasn't too sparse for you to get Neomutt functioning with multiple accounts. If you have any.
Implement Lightweight Profiles to switch between email personae. Setup: Make personal.profile and work.profile files and use them to configure the things that are unique to each identity, e.g. # -*- muttrc -*- # Mutt sender profile : personal/default # get us out of whatever default folder we're in unset folder # reset us to the right folder and mailboxes for this persona set folder = ~/.mail. The proper way to configure this would be to tell mutt about accessing the mailboxes through some sort of protocol that allows user authentication so that the mailboxes get touched as the correct user. You can do this by adding macros to your ~/.muttrc file like this: # Utility macro to change sent, drafts and other folders after changing. . After c, you can type the path to the mailbox, or you can use one of the shortcuts (see Mailbox shortcuts in the manual). In order to change the Default Email Address of Mail App on iPhone, you first need to make sure that you have an Alternate Email Address available in the Mail App Mutt does not change the unread flag on the IMAP server and other Mutt questions At first let me describe my setup: I am running a separate machine which fetches the mails from my different mail accounts using fetchmail, those mails are sorted into different folders and offered via IMAP using dovecot and dovecot-sieve
~/Maildir/.lists.mutt-users. There are good reasons to use mutt directly on the machine from time to time. Unfortunately, these folder names aren't exactly suitable for mutt use. It works, but the leading dot is a pain, and tab completion only honours '/' as a delimiter for folders, not '.' Having been using mutt for several years, I have to say my mutt configuration evolves, either following changes in new technology or concepts with email processing. In early days when POP3 was still the go-to option, mutt was setup to hook up with fetchmail to get email from server, then procmail/maildrop would do some processing, including.
Command-line email client mutt has a well-deserved reputation as a powerhouse of an email client. It's fast, flexible and, best of all, surprisingly easy to use.

notmuch-mutt can be used to integrate notmuch with the Mutt mail user agent (unsurprisingly, given the name). To that end, you should define macros like the following in your Mutt configuration (usually one of: ~/.muttrc , /etc/Muttrc, or a configuration snippet under /etc/Muttrc.d/ ): The first macro (activated by <F8>) prompts the user for. Since I'm paranoid about protecting my identitity, let's say that the google apps account is email@example.com and my gmail account is firstname.lastname@example.org (it isn't).

Mutt does not support virtual folders, so there is nothing fancy really about how I use Notmuch as I only use it for search (not tagging). I have a macro to call `mutt-notmuch.py` (there is a Perl version as well) to: search, create a temporary read-only maildir based on the current TTY, and lastly populate in with symlinks to the search. Make sure the rc.local can be executed: sudo chmod 0755 /etc/rc.local. sudo bash cp /home/pi/.muttrc /root. sudo nano /etc/watchdog.conf.

Mutt is a mail user agent (MUA), meaning its job is to read, compose, and send email to an outbound mail spool. It's the job of some other application or service to actually transfer a message to or from a mail server (although there's a lot of integration with Mutt so that it seems like it's doing all the work even when it's not. Python version of the mutt-notmuch scrip Mutt understands either two or four digit year specifications. When given a two-digit year, neomutt will interpret values less than 70 as lying in the 21st century (i.e., 38 means 2038 and not 1938, and 00 is interpreted as 2000), and values greater than or equal to 70 as lying in the 20th century mutt. Mutt is a fantastic MUA. Its tagline is all mail clients suck, this one just sucks less, but I really love mutt. It may come as a surprise that working with email can be a pleasure, especially if you're accustomed to working with clunky webmail UIs, but mutt makes it so. Here's a pruned-down version of one of my .muttrc files (or mutt wil prompt you to add the certificate automatically) Place the next in .muttrc ONLY if you have priority conflicts with other accounts : set pop_authenticators=digest-md5:apop:use
A few years ago I installed Notmuch on my computer in order to keep an index of my mailbox. Though Notmuch is quite awesome, I didn't fully configure it until recently. As I eventually moved from Mutt to NeoMutt for its native Notmuch backend integration (and a bunch of other cool features too) I began to rely more on it. As messages are indexed by Notmuch in term of messages and threads, one. Mutt, and neomutt.

Mutt is a text-based mail client renowned for its powerful features. Though over two decades old, Mutt remains the mail client of choice for a great number of power users. Mutt focuses primarily on being a Mail User Agent (MUA), and was originally written to view mail The Homely Mutt. Posted on October 1st, 2012. Now that Sparrow is effectively dead many of its users will be looking for a new email client. If you're not afraid of the terminal you may want to give Mutt a try.. Mutt certainly isn't the prettiest email client around, and its setup/configuration process is one of the ugliest out there SASL is required for mutt to authenticate using smtps (apparently). I'd be lying if I quite understood why it is needed, but I know it was the difference between working and not working. Apt has it listed as recommended, which isn't a bug since you don't need it to run mutt The Sidebar shows a list of all your mailboxes. The list can be turned on and off, it can be themed and the list style can be configured. This part of the manual is suitable for beginners. If you already know NeoMutt you could skip ahead to the main Sidebar guide.
