NAME

bookmarks - file with bookmarks (shortcuts) for mu search expressions
 

DESCRIPTION

Bookmarks are named shortcuts for search queries. They allow using a convenient name for often-used queries. The bookmarks are also visible as shortcuts in the mu experimental user interfaces, mug and mug2.
 
mu supports bookmarks stored in a file called bookmarks in the mu home directory (typically, this would be ~/.mu/bookmarks).
 
The bookmarks file is a typical key=value .ini-file, which is best shown by means of an example:
 
    [mu]
    inbox=maildir:/inbox                  # inbox
    oldhat=maildir:/archive subject:hat   # archived with subject containing 'hat'
 
The [mu] group header is required.
 
For practical uses of bookmarks, see mu-find(1).
 

LOCATION

The bookmarks file is read from <muhome>/bookmarks. Typically, this would be ~/.mu/bookmarks, but this can be influenced using the --muhome parameter for mu-find(1) and mug(1).
