MBOXGREP(1)                          General Commands Manual                          MBOXGREP(1)



NAME
       mboxgrep - displays email messages matching a pattern

SYNOPSIS
       mboxgrep [OPTIONS] PATTERN [MAILBOX]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page refers to mboxgrep version 0.7.9.

       mboxgrep scans a MAILBOX and displays messages matching PATTERN.

       If  a  mailbox name is ommited, or a single dash (-) is given instead, it reads from stan‐
       dard input.  It can read mbox folders or output from another mboxgrep process  from  stan‐
       dard input.

       mboxgrep understands POSIX regular expressions, as well as Perl compatible regular expres‐
       sions (if enabled at compile time).  MAILBOX can be either a:

       ·      mbox folder (either plain or compressed)

       ·      MH folder

       ·      Gnus nnmh or nnml folder

       ·      qmail-style maildir folder

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              Display a help screen and exit.

       -V, --version
              Display version and copyright information and exit.

       -r, --recursive
              Descend into directories recursively.

       -E, --extended-regexp
              PATTERN is an extended regular expression.  This is default.

       -G, --basic-regexp
              PATTERN is a basic regular expression.

       -P, --perl-regexp
              PATTERN is a Perl regular expression.  Works only if enabled at compile time.

       -e, --regexp=PATTERN
              Use PATTERN as a regular expression.

       -i, --ignore-case
              Ignore case distinctions.

       -v, --invert-match
              Select messages which don't match PATTERN.

       -H, --headers
              Match PATTERN against message headers.

       -B, --body
              Match PATTERN against message body.

       -l, --file-lock=METHOD
              Select file locking METHOD.  METHOD is `fcntl', `flock', or `none'.

       -nl, --no-file-lock
              Do not lock files.  This option is meaningful only if a mbox folder (see below)  is
              scanned.

       -c, --count
              Suppress normal output and print a count of matching messages.

       -o, --output=FOLDER
              Suppress normal output and write messages to destination folder FOLDER instead.

       -p, --pipe=COMMAND
              Pipe each found message to COMMAND

       -d, --delete
              Suppress normal output and delete selected messages instead.  Use with caution.

       -nd, --no-duplicates
              Ignore duplicate messages.

       -m, --mailbox-format=TYPE
              Select input and output mailbox TYPE.  TYPE can be either `mbox' (default), `zmbox'
              (meaning `gzip compressed mbox'),  `bz2mbox'  (meaning  `bzip2  compressed  mbox'),
              `mh', `nnml', `nnmh' or `maildir'.

EXAMPLES
       ·      Search $MAIL for messages from Dirty Harry:

       mboxgrep '^From:.*callahan@homicide\.SFPD\.gov' $MAIL

       ·      Display  all messages contained in folder ~/Mail/incoming, except those that appear
              to originate from AOL:
