README ====== Welcome to mu! --------------- Given the enormous amounts of e-mail many people gather and the importance of e-mail message in our work-flows, it's essential to quickly deal with all that mail - in particular, to instantly find that one important e-mail you need right now. [mu] is a tool for dealing with e-mail messages stored in the Maildir-format. =mu='s purpose in life is to help you to quickly find the messages you need; in addition, it allows you to view messages, extract attachments, create new maildirs, and so on. See the [mu cheatsheet] for some examples. =mu= is fully documented. After indexing your messages into a [Xapian]-database, you can search them using a custom query language. You can use various message fields or words in the body text to find the right messages. Built on top of =mu= are some extensions (included in this package): - mu-for-emacs ([mu4e]): a full-featured e-mail client that runs inside emacs - [mu-guile]: bindings for the Guile/Scheme programming language (version 2.0 and later) - a toy GTK+-interface called 'mug' (in the 'toys/' subdir) =mu= is written in C and a bit of C++ (to interface with Xapian), with =mu4e= written in [Emacs-Lisp] and =mu-guile= in a mix of C and Scheme. Note, =mu= is available in Debian/Ubuntu under the name =maildir-utils=; apparently because they don't like short names. It's also possible to confuse that name with the [GNU Mailutils] project (which is totally unrelated) - but now you have been warned.
