mu4e manual

Welcome to mu4e!

mu4e (mu-for-emacs) is an e-mail client for GNU-Emacs version 24 (version 23 may works as well, but is tested as much), built on top of the mu1 e-mail search engine. mu4e is optimized for fast handling of large amounts of e-mail.

Some of mu4e’s highlights:

In this manual, we go through the installation of mu4e, do some basic configuration and explain its daily use. We also show you how you can customize mu4e for your needs.

At the end of the manual, there are some example configurations, to get you up to speed quickly: Example configurations. There’s also an FAQ, which should help you with some common questions.




that is, instead of folders, you use queries that match messages in a particular folder


currently, the only exception to this is sending mail; there are solutions for that though - see the FAQ
