DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       -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.

       -e command
              Specify a configuration command to be run after processing of initialization files.

       -f mailbox
              Specify which mailbox to load.

       -F muttrc
              Specify an initialization file to read instead of ~/.muttrc

       -g server
              Start Mutt with a listing of subscribed newsgroups at specified news server.

       -G     Start Mutt with a listing of subscribed newsgroups.

       -h     Display help.

       -H draft
              Specify a draft file which contains header and body to use to 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  configura‐
              tion  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 messages in  the  mail‐
              box.

       -Z     Causes Mutt to open the first mailbox specified by the mailboxes command which con‐
              tains new mail.

       --     Treat remaining arguments as addr even if they start with a dash.   See  also  "-a"
              above.

BUGS
       None.  Mutts have fleas, not bugs.

FLEAS
       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 sys‐
       tems.

       Suspend/resume does not work under Ultrix.

       The help line for the index menu is not updated if you change the bindings 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 http://bugs.mutt.org/.
