MELI(1)                     General Commands Manual                    MELI(1)

     meli - Meli Mail User Agent.  Meli is the Greek word for honey.


     Experimental terminal mail client

     When launched for the first time, meli will search for its configuration
     directory ($XDG_CONFIG_HOME/meli/). If it doesn't exist, you will be
     asked if you want to create one along with a sample configuration. The
     sample configuration ($XDG_CONFIG_HOME/meli/config) includes comments
     with the basic settings required for setting up accounts allowing you to
     copy and edit right away.

     At any time, you can press `?` to show a searchable list of all available
     actions and shortcuts, along with every possible setting and command that
     your version supports.

     The main visual navigation tool is the left-side sidebar. The menu's
     visibility can be toggled (default shortcut `).

     The view into each folder has 3 modes: plain, threaded and compact. Plain
     views each mail indvidually, threaded shows their thread relationship
     visually, and compact includes one entry per thread of emails.

     Commands are issued in EXECUTE mode, by default started with the space
     character and exited with Escape key.
