Balsa(1)				      2.0.6					 Balsa(1)

       Balsa - the GNOME email client.

       balsa [--help] [--version] [-c] [--checkmail] [-m USER@HOST.TLD] [--compose=USER@HOST.TLD]
       [-a   FILENAME]	 [--attach=FILENAME]   [-o   MAILBOX]	 [--open-mailbox=MAILBOX]    [-u]
       [--open-unread-mailbox] [-d] [--debug-pop]

       Balsa is an e-mail reader.  This client is part of the GNOME desktop environment.  It sup-
       ports local mailboxes, POP3 and IMAP.  For help on using Balsa, see the program documenta-
       tion in the help menu.

       -c, --checkmail
	      Balsa will immediately check for new mail when the program is launched

       -i, --open-inbox
	      Balsa will open the Inbox on startup.

       -m USER@HOST.TLD, --compose=USER@HOST.TLD
	      When  invoked  with  this  option, balsa will open a new message with the specified
	      address in the To: field. The parameter can be specified also in URL  format  -  it
	      makes  it  possible  to  use balsa as mailto protocol handler by setting the mailto
	      protocol command to balsa -m "%s" in URL handlers section of GNOME control center.

       -a FILENAME, --attach=FILENAME
	      When invoked with this option, balsa will open a new  message  with  the	specified
	      file already attached to the message.

       -o MAILBOX, --open-mailbox=MAILBOX
	      Balsa  will open automatically at startup the mailbox or mailboxes specified on the
	      command line with this option.  Multiple mailboxes are delimited by semicolons.

       -u, --open-unread-mailbox
	      Open the first unread mailbox when balsa is launched.

       -d, --debug-pop
	      Dumps the POP3 communication to stderr. Useful for debugging POP3 connections.


       Any bugs found  should  be  reported  to  the  Balsa  Developer	mailing  list  at  balsa-
       list@gnome.org  or you may want to make use of the online bug-tracking system available on
       the web	at  http://bugzilla.gnome.org/.  See  http://balsa.gnome.org/bugs.html	for  more
       information on reporting bugs.

       Before  reporting  bugs,  please  check to see if the bug is mentioned in the FAQ's or the
       mailing list archive. See the section on Other Info for locations of these.

       When reporting Balsa bugs, it is important to include a reliable way to reproduce the bug,
       version	number of Balsa (as well as GTK and GNOME), OS name and version, and any relevant
       hardware specs.

       If a bug is causing a crash, it is very useful if a stack trace can be  provided.  And  of
       course, patches to rectify the bug are even better.
