9.2 Context policies

When you have defined contexts and you start mu4e it decides which context to use based on the variable mu4e-context-policy; similarly, when you compose a new message, the context is determined using mu4e-compose-context-policy.

The other choices only apply if none of the contexts match (i.e., none of the contexts’ match-functions returns t). We have the following options:

You can easily switch contexts manually using the ; key from the main screen.
