5.8 Actions

You can perform custom functions (“actions”) on messages and their attachments. For a general discussion on how to define your own, see see Actions.

5.8.1 Message actions

mu4e-view-action (a) lets you pick some custom action to perform on the current message. You can specify these actions using the variable mu4e-view-actions; mu4e defines a number of example actions.

mu4e predefines a number of attachment-actions:

These actions all work on a temporary copy of the attachment.
