SYNOPSIS

mailestctl [-h] [-S suffix] [-s socket] [-m maildir] command [args ...]

DESCRIPTION

The mailestctl program controls the mailestd(8) daemon. To use the mailest for the search backend for the Mew program, see the EXAMPLE section in mew-mailest(1).

The options are as follows:
-S suffix
  The suffix of the mail files instead of the default .mew. This option is only used only when the mailestctl invoking mailestd(8) to pass the suffix configuration. This option exists to keep the compatibility with the existing "mewest", and it doesn’t change the suffix configuration of the running mailestd(8). See the mailestd.conf(5) to configure in proper way.
-s socket
  Use the socket instead of the default (maildir)/.mailest.sock to comunicate with mailestd(8).
-m maildir
  The base directory of the mail folders instead of the default ${HOME}/Mail.
-h Show the usage.

The following commands are available:
start Start the mailestd(8) daemon.
stop Stop the running mailestd(8) daemon.
restart
  Restart the mailestd(8) daemon.
message-id message-id
  Search the indexes by the message-id.
parent-id message-id
  Search the indexes by the parent message’s message-id.
csearch[-vu[-maxmax[-ordord]]]
  Oo Fl ic Ar ic Oc Oo Fl attr Ar attr Oc phrase Search the indexes of the mail messages in estcmd(1) compatible arguments. This command is used by "Mew" though the wrapper program mew-mailest(1) to search the file names which include the given phrase. Specify -vu always since the other output options are not avaiable. The mailestd(8) daemon will start automatically if it’s not running.
update [folder]
  Start the indexes of the messages. If the folder is specified, the indexing is done in the specified folder, otherwise index all folders following the configuration of mailestd. A shell globing pattern (like"openbsd-*") is usable for the folder. The mailestd(8) daemon will start automatically if it’s not running.
suspend
  Suspend the indexing.
resume
  Resume the indexing.
debug Increase the debug level of the mailestd(8) daemon.
-- -debug
  Decrease the debug level of the mailestd(8) daemon. "--" is needed to speparate this command from treating as the mailestctl program’s option.
