NOTMUCH-SHOW(1)                              notmuch                              NOTMUCH-SHOW(1)

       notmuch-show - show messages matching the given search terms

       notmuch show [option ...] <search-term> ...

       Shows all messages matching the search terms.

       See notmuch-search-terms(7) for details of the supported syntax for <search-terms>.

       The  messages will be grouped and sorted based on the threading (all replies to a particu‐
       lar message will appear immediately after that message in date order). The output  is  not
       indented  by  default,  but  depth tags are printed so that proper indentation can be per‐
       formed by a post-processor (such as the emacs interface to notmuch).

       Supported options for show include

                 If true, notmuch show outputs all messages in the thread of any message matching
                 the  search  terms;  if false, it outputs only the matching messages. For --for‐
                 mat=json and --format=sexp this  defaults  to  true.  For  other  formats,  this
                 defaults to false.


              text (default for messages)
                     The default plain-text format has all text-content MIME parts decoded. Vari‐
                     ous components in the output, (message, header, body, attachment,  and  MIME
                     part), will be delimited by easily-parsed markers. Each marker consists of a
                     Control-L character (ASCII decimal 12), the name of  the  marker,  and  then
                     either  an  opening  or closing brace, ('{' or '}'), to either open or close
                     the component. For a multipart MIME message, these parts will be nested.

              json   The output is formatted with Javascript Object Notation (JSON). This  format
                     is  more  robust  than  the text format for automated processing. The nested
                     structure of multipart MIME messages is reflected in nested JSON output.  By
                     default  JSON output includes all messages in a matching thread; that is, by
                     default, --format=json sets --entire-thread. The caller can disable this be‐
                     haviour by setting --entire-thread=false.  The JSON output is always encoded
                     as UTF-8 and any message content included in the output will be charset-con‐
                     verted to UTF-8.

              sexp   The  output  is  formatted as the Lisp s-expression (sexp) equivalent of the
                     JSON format above. Objects are formatted as property lists  whose  keys  are
                     keywords  (symbols  preceded  by  a  colon). True is formatted as t and both
                     false and null are formatted as nil. As for JSON, the s-expression output is
                     always encoded as UTF-8.

              mbox   All  matching  messages are output in the traditional, Unix mbox format with
                     each message being prefixed by a line beginning with "From  "  and  a  blank
                     line  separating  each  message. Lines in the message content beginning with
                     "From " (preceded by zero or more '>' characters)  have  an  additional  '>'
                     character  added.  This  reversible  escaping  is termed "mboxrd" format and
                     described in detail here:


              raw (default if --part is given)
                     Write the raw bytes of the given MIME part of a message to standard out. For
                     this format, it is an error to specify a query that matches  more  than  one

                     If  the  specified  part  is  a leaf part, this outputs the body of the part
                     after performing content transfer decoding (but no charset conversion). This
                     is suitable for saving attachments, for example.

                     For  a  multipart  or  message part, the output includes the part headers as
                     well as the body (including all  child  parts).  No  decoding  is  performed
                     because multipart and message parts cannot have non-trivial content transfer
                     encoding. Consumers of this may need to implement MIME decoding and  similar

                 Use  the  specified  structured output format version. This is intended for pro‐
                 grams that invoke notmuch(1) internally. If omitted, the latest  supported  ver‐
                 sion will be used.

                 Output the single decoded MIME part N of a single message. The search terms must
                 match only a single message. Message parts are numbered in a depth-first walk of
                 the  message  MIME structure, and are identified in the 'json', 'sexp' or 'text'
                 output formats.

                 Note that even a message with no MIME structure or a single body part still  has
                 two  MIME  parts:  part  0 is the whole message (headers and body) and part 1 is
                 just the body.

                 Compute and report the validity of any MIME cryptographic  signatures  found  in
                 the  selected  content  (ie.  "multipart/signed" parts). Status of the signature
                 will be  reported  (currently  only  supported  with  --format=json  and  --for‐
                 mat=sexp), and the multipart/signed part will be replaced by the signed data.

                 Decrypt  any  MIME  encrypted  parts  found in the selected content (ie. "multi‐
                 part/encrypted" parts). Status of the decryption  will  be  reported  (currently
                 only  supported  with --format=json and --format=sexp) and on successful decryp‐
                 tion the multipart/encrypted part will be replaced by the decrypted content.

                 Decryption expects a functioning gpg-agent(1) to provide any needed credentials.
                 Without one, the decryption will fail.

                 Implies --verify.

                 Specify whether to omit threads only matching search.tag_exclude from the search
                 results (the default) or not. In either case the excluded message will be marked
                 with  the exclude flag (except when output=mbox when there is nowhere to put the

                 If --entire-thread is specified then complete threads  are  returned  regardless
                 (with  the excluded flag being set when appropriate) but threads that only match
                 in an excluded message are not returned when --exclude=true.

                 The default is --exclude=true.

                 If true (the default) notmuch show includes the bodies of the  messages  in  the
                 output;  if false, bodies are omitted.  --body=false is only implemented for the
                 json and sexp formats and it is incompatible with --part > 0.

                 This is useful if the caller only needs the headers as body-less output is  much
                 faster and substantially smaller.

                 Include  "text/html"  parts as part of the output (currently only supported with
                 --format=json and --format=sexp). By default, unless --part=N is used to  select
                 a  specific  part or --include-html is used to include all "text/html" parts, no
                 part with content type "text/html" is included in the output.

       A common use of notmuch show is to display a single thread of email  messages.  For  this,
       use  a  search  term  of "thread:<thread-id>" as can be seen in the first column of output
       from the notmuch search command.

       This command supports the following special exit status codes

       20     The requested format version is too old.

       21     The requested format version is too new.
