why use meli

meli aims for configurability and extensibility with sane defaults.

It seeks to be a mail client for both new and power users of the terminal, but built today.

A variety of email workflows and software stacks should be usable with meli. Integrate e-mail storage, sync, tagging system, SMTP client, contact management and editor of your choice to replace the defaults.


  • email threads
  • multithreaded
  • embed your own editor
  • plain text configuration
  • multi-tasking with UI tabs
  • IMAP, Maildir, notmuch, JMAP, mbox
  • optional sqlite3 index search
  • fast and minimal account configuration
  • contact list (+read-only vCard support)
  • forced UTF-8 - other encodings are read-only
