NAME

mu extract- display and save message parts (attachments)

 

SYNOPSIS

mu extract [options] <file> [<parts-to-save>]

 

DESCRIPTION

mu extact is the mu sub-command for extracting MIME-parts (e.g., attachments) from mail messages. It works on message files, and does not require the message to be indexed.

For attachments, the file name used for saving is the name of the attachment in the message. If there is no such name, or when saving other mime-parts, a name derived from the message-id of the message.

Without any options, mu extract simply outputs the list of MIME-parts in the message.

 

OPTIONS

-a, --save-attachments
save all MIME-parts that look like attachments.

--save-all
save all non-multipart MIME-parts.

--parts=<parts>
only consider the following numbered parts (comma-separated list).The numbers for the parts can be seen from running mu extract without any options but only the message file.

--target-dir=<dir>
save the parts in the target directory rather than the current working directory.

--overwrite
overwrite existing files with the same name; by default overwriting is not allowed.

--play Try to 'play' (open) the attachment with the default
application for the particular file type. Depends on the xdg-open utility.
