mu.conf - configuration file for the mu collection of Maildir utils.


mu.conf is a text file in the mu-home directory which contains configuration settings for the mu collection of maildir utilities. Please refer to the manpages for the various programs for documentation on their particular options.

The configuration file is divided in sections, each starting with [<


section name >]. The section names are the same as the names of the programs they are for;
 e,g,  mu-find options are found under [mu-find] and similarly for mu-index . Global settings for all mu programs are found under [mu]

configuration values

The configuration values are of the form: key = value # comment

Anything on a line on the right side of a '#' character, and the '#'-character itself, are considered comments, and will be ignored.

; note that there is no requirement for even having a mu.conf as the defaults might be sufficient.


mu.conf can be found in the .mu/ directory, by default in $HOME/.mu
