notmuch-show - Show messages matching the given search terms. SYNOPSIS
notmuch show [options...] <search-term>... DESCRIPTION
Shows all messages matching the search terms. See notmuch-search-terms(7) for details of the supported syntax for <search-terms>. The messages will be grouped and sorted based on the threading (all replies to a particular message will appear immediately after that mes- sage in date order). The output is not indented by default, but depth tags are printed so that proper indentation can be performed by a post-processor (such as the emacs interface to notmuch). Supported options for show include --entire-thread By default only those messages that match the search terms will be displayed. With this option, all messages in the same thread as any matched message will be displayed. --format=(text|json|mbox|raw) text (default for messages) The default plain-text format has all text-content MIME parts decoded. Various components in the output, (message, header, body, attachment, and MIME part), will be delimited by easily-parsed markers. Each marker consists of a Control-L character (ASCII decimal 12), the name of the marker, and then either an opening or closing brace, ('{' or '}'), to either open or close the component. For a multipart MIME message, these parts will be nested. json The output is formatted with Javascript Object Notation (JSON). This format is more robust than the text format for automated processing. The nested structure of multipart MIME messages is reflected in nested JSON output. JSON output always includes all messages in a matching thread; in effect --format=json implies --entire-thread mbox All matching messages are output in the traditional, Unix mbox format with each message being prefixed by a line beginning with "From " and a blank line separating each message. Lines in the message content beginning with "From " (preceded by zero or more '>' characters) have an additional '>' character added. This reversible escaping is termed "mboxrd" format and described in detail here: raw (default for a single part, see --part) For a message or an attached message part, the original, raw content of the email message is output. Consumers of this format should expect to implement MIME decoding and similar functions. For a single part (--part) the raw part content is output after performing any necessary MIME decoding. Note that messages with a simple body still have two parts: part 0 is the whole message and part 1 is the body. For a multipart part, the part headers and body (including all child parts) is output. The raw format must only be used with search terms matching single message. --part=N Output the single decoded MIME part N of a single message. The search terms must match only a single message. Message parts are numbered in a depth-first walk of the message MIME structure, and are identified in the 'json' or 'text' output formats. --verify Compute and report the validity of any MIME cryptographic signatures found in the selected content (ie. "multipart/signed" parts). Status of the signature will be reported (currently only supported with --format=json), and the multipart/signed part will be re- placed by the signed data. --decrypt Decrypt any MIME encrypted parts found in the selected content (ie. "multipart/encrypted" parts). Status of the decryption will be reported (currently only supported with --format=json) and the multipart/encrypted part will be replaced by the decrypted content. --exclude=(true|false) Specify whether to omit threads only matching search.tag_exclude from the search results (the default) or not. In either case the excluded message will be marked with the exclude flag (except when output=mbox when there is nowhere to put the flag). If --entire-thread is specified then complete threads are returned regardless (with the excluded flag being set when appropriate) but threads that only match in an excluded message are not returned when --exclude=true. The default is --exclude=true. A common use of notmuch show is to display a single thread of email messages. For this, use a search term of "thread:<thread-id>" as can be seen in the first column of output from the notmuch search command. SEE ALSO
