MELI.CONF(5)                  File Formats Manual                 MELI.CONF(5)

NAME
     meli.conf – configuration file for the Meli Mail User Agent

SYNOPSIS
     $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/meli/config.toml

DESCRIPTION
     Configuration for meli is written in TOML.  Few things to consider before
     writing TOML (quoting the spec):

        TOML is case sensitive.
        A TOML file must be a valid UTF-8 encoded Unicode document.
        Whitespace means tab (0x09) or space (0x20).
        Newline means LF (0x0A) or CRLF (0x0D 0x0A).

     Refer to TOML documentation for valid TOML syntax.

     Though not part of TOML syntax, meli.conf can have nested configuration
     files by using the following m4(1) include macro:
           include("/path/to/file")

SECTIONS
     The top level sections of the config are:
        accounts
        shortcuts
        notifications
        pager
        listing
        composing
        pgp
        terminal
        log

                                           glob wildcard * can be used to

                                           below in mailboxes.

notmuch only
     root_mailbox points to the directory which contains the .notmuch/
     subdirectory.  notmuch mailboxes are virtual, since they are defined by
     user-given notmuch queries.  Thus you have to explicitly state the
     mailboxes you want in the mailboxes field and set the query property to
     each of them.  Example:

     [accounts.notmuch]
     format = "notmuch"
     ...
       [accounts.notmuch.mailboxes]
       "INBOX" = {  query="tag:inbox", subscribe = true }
       "Drafts" = {  query="tag:draft", subscribe = true }
       "Sent" = {  query="from:username@server.tld from:username2@server.tld", subscribe = true }

IMAP only
     IMAP specific options are:

     server_hostname String                example: "mail.example.tld"

     server_username String

     server_password String

     server_password_command String        (optional) Use instead of
                                           server_password

     server_port number                    (optional) (143)

     use_starttls boolean                  (optional) if port is 993 and
                                           use_starttls is unspecified, it
                                           becomes false by default.  (true)

     danger_accept_invalid_certs boolean   (optional) do not validate TLS
                                           certificates.  (false)

JMAP only
     JMAP specific options are:

     server_hostname String                example: "mail.example.tld"

     server_username String

     server_password String

     server_port number                    (optional) (443)

     danger_accept_invalid_certs boolean   (optional) do not validate TLS
                                           certificates.  (false)

mbox only
     mbox specific options are:

     prefer_mbox_type String               (optional) prefer specific mbox
                                           format reader for each message.
                                           Default is mboxcl2 format. If the
                                           preferred format fails, the message
                                           is retried with mboxrd and then if
                                           it fails again there's a recover
                                           attempt, which discards the invalid
                                           message.  Valid values are:
                                              auto
                                              mboxo
                                              mboxrd
                                              mboxcl
                                              mboxcl2
                                           (auto)
     to set multiple mailboxes, you have to explicitly state the mailboxes you
     want in the mailboxes field and set the path property to each of them.
     Example:

     [accounts.mbox]
     format = "mbox"
     mailboxes."Python mailing list" = { path = "~/.mail/python.mbox", subscribe = true, autoload = true }

                                           mailbox.  Valid values are:

                                              Inbox
