       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/pkg/share/doc/mutt, 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.

       -F muttrc

       -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 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.

	      monly used when the spool mailbox is a maildir (5) folder.

       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.

       project's bug tracking system under
