If a pattern is used for selection, show all messages that match pattern by default only the first one is presented.
Display mailbox debugging information.
Look for messages containing exactly the words given as arguments. This is the default. Other options changing this behavior are: --glob, --regex, and --ignorecase.
Specified the default mailbox.
Treat non-option arguments as shell globbing patterns. For example, to select the first message with words ‘morning’ and ‘coffee’ with anything bewteen them:
readmsg --glob 'morning*coffee'
(notice quoting, which prevents the shell from interpreting the ‘*’ prematurely).
Show the entire header and ignore the weedlist.
Ignore the case of letters when looking for matching messages. E.g.:
readmsg --glob --ignorecase 'morning*coffee'
Do not print the message header.
Put form-feed (Control-L) between messages instead of newline.
Treat non-option arguments as POSIX extended regular expressions.
A whitespace or coma separated list of header names to show per message. Default is --weedlist="From Subject Date To CC Apparently-".
