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/mutt-1.5.21, 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

       -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/.
