XDG-EMAIL(1)				 xdg-email Manual			     XDG-EMAIL(1)

NAME
       xdg-email - command line tool for sending mail using the user's preferred e-mail composer

SYNOPSIS
       xdg-email [--utf8] [--cc address] [--bcc address] [--subject text] [--body text]
		 [--attach file] [mailto-uri | address(es)]

       xdg-email {--help | --manual | --version}

DESCRIPTION
       xdg-email opens the user's preferred e-mail composer in order to send a mail to
       address(es) or mailto-uri. RFC2368 defines mailto: URIs. xdg-email limits support to, cc,
       subject and body fields in mailto-uri, all other fields are silently ignored.  address(es)
       must follow the syntax of RFC822. Multiple addresses may be provided as separate
       arguments.

       All information provided on the command line is used to prefill corresponding fields in
       the user's e-mail composer. The user will have the opportunity to change any of this
       information before actually sending the e-mail.

       xdg-email is for use inside a desktop session only. It is not recommended to use xdg-email
       as root.

       See http://portland.freedesktop.org/wiki/EmailConfig for information on how the user can
       change the e-mail composer that is used.

OPTIONS
       --utf8
	   Indicates that all command line options that follow are in utf8. Without this option,
	   command line options are expected to be encoded according to locale. If the locale
	   already specifies utf8 this option has no effect. This option does not affect mailto
	   URIs that are passed on the command line.

       --cc address
	   Specify a recipient to be copied on the e-mail.

       --bcc address
	   Specify a recipient to be blindly copied on the e-mail.

       --subject text
	   Specify a subject for the e-mail.

       --body text
	   Specify a body for the e-mail. Since the user will be able to make changes before
	   actually sending the e-mail, this can be used to provide the user with a template for
	   the e-mail.	text may contain linebreaks.

       --attach file
	   Specify an attachment for the e-mail.  file must point to an existing file.

	   Some e-mail applications require the file to remain present after xdg-email returns.

       --help
	   Show command synopsis.

       --manual
	   Show this manual page.

       --version
	   Show the xdg-utils version information.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       xdg-email honours the following environment variables:

       XDG_UTILS_DEBUG_LEVEL
	   Setting this environment variable to a non-zero numerical value makes xdg-email do
	   more verbose reporting on stderr. Setting a higher value increases the verbosity.

       following failure codes can be returned:

       1
	   Error in command line syntax.
