           Mutt  is  a  small but very powerful text based program for reading and
           sending electronic mail under unix operating systems, including support
           for color terminals, MIME, OpenPGP, and a threaded sorting mode.
           Note:  This  manual  page gives a brief overview of mutt's command line
           options. You should find a copy of the full manual  in  /usr/share/doc,
           in text, HTML, and/or PDF format.


           -A alias
                  An expanded version of the given alias is passed to stdout.
           -a file [...]
                  Attach a file to your message using MIME.  When attaching single
                  or multiple files, separating filenames and recipient  addresses
                  with  "--" is mandatory, e.g. mutt -a image.jpg -- addr1 or mutt
                  -a img.jpg *.png -- addr1 addr2.  The -a option must  be  placed
                  at the end of command line options.
           -b address
                  Specify a blind-carbon-copy (BCC) recipient
           -c address
                  Specify a carbon-copy (CC) recipient
           -d level
                  If  mutt  was  complied  with  +DEBUG  log  debugging  output to
                  ~/.muttdebug0.  Level can range from 1-5 and effects  verbosity.
                  A value of 2 is recommended.
           -D     Print the value of all configuration options to stdout.
                  send a message.
           -i include
                  Specify a file to include into the body of a message.
           -m type
                  specify a default mailbox type for newly created folders.
           -n     Causes Mutt to bypass the system configuration file.
           -p     Resume a postponed message.
           -Q query
                  Query  a  configuration  variables value.  The query is executed
                  after all configuration files have been parsed, and any commands
                  given on the command line have been executed.
           -R     Open a mailbox in read-only mode.
           -s subject
                  Specify the subject of the message.
           -v     Display the Mutt version number and compile-time definitions.
           -vv    Display license and copyright information.
           -x     Emulate the mailx compose mode.
           -y     Start  Mutt  with  a  listing  of all mailboxes specified by the
                  mailboxes command.
           -z     When used with -f, causes Mutt not to start if there are no mes-
                  sages in the mailbox.
           -Z     Causes Mutt to open the first mailbox specified by the mailboxes
                  command which contains new mail.
           --     Treat remaining arguments as addr even  if  they  start  with  a
                  dash.  See also "-a" above.

                  Default Reply-To address.

           None.  Mutts have fleas, not bugs.


           Suspend/resume while editing a file with an external  editor  does  not
           work  under  SunOS 4.x if you use the curses lib in /usr/5lib.  It does
           work with the S-Lang library, however.
           Resizing the screen while using an external pager  causes  Mutt  to  go
           haywire on some systems.
           Suspend/resume does not work under Ultrix.
           The help line for the index menu is not updated if you change the bind-
           ings for one of the functions listed while Mutt is running.
           For a more up-to-date list of bugs, errm, fleas, please visit the  mutt
           project's bug tracking system under
