neomutt (an updated fork of
mutt) as my CLI MUA (read: mail reading software in the terminal) and have all my messages synced offline using
mbsync and stored in the
maildir-format on my
Debian Stable system.
Sometimes I want to reply to a message and attach another email (e.g. as a reference). This can be easily done when using the
maildir-storage format since all messages are separate files; I just need to attach the file in my local folder. The problem is that I have difficulties finding the email files.
Obviously I can search through all of my messages (e.g. by using
mu, which is my mail indexer) and then attach it, but this is tedious. It would be a lot easier to just display the path and filename somewhere when I read an email, optimally in my pager within
But despite looking for a solution, I wasn't able to find that. Any ideas or workarounds?
