Constructs a reply template for a set of messages.
To make replying to email easier, notmuch reply takes an existing
set of messages and constructs a suitable mail template. The Reply-to:
header (if any, otherwise From:) is used for the To: address. Unless
--reply-to=sender is specified, values from the To: and Cc: headers
are copied, but not including any of the current users email addresses
(as configured in primary_mail or other_email in the .notmuch-config
file) in the recipient list.
It also builds a suitable new subject, including Re: at the front (if
not already present), and adding the message IDs of the messages being
replied to to the References list and setting the In-Reply-To: field
Finally, the original contents of the emails are quoted by prefixing
each line with > and included in the body.
The resulting message template is output to stdout.
Supported options for reply include
Includes subject and quoted message body as an RFC 2822
Produces JSON output containing headers for a reply message
and the contents of the original message. This output can be
used by a client to create a reply message intelligently.
Produces S-Expression output containing headers for a reply
message and the contents of the original message. This
output can be used by a client to create a reply message
Only produces In-Reply-To, References, To, Cc, and Bcc
Use the specified structured output format version. This is
intended for programs that invoke notmuch(1) internally. If
omitted, the latest supported version will be used.

Replies to all addresses.
Replies only to the sender. If replying to users own
message (Reply-to: or From: header is one of the users
configured email addresses), try To:, Cc:, and Bcc: headers
in this order, and copy values from the first that contains
something other than only the users addresses.
Decrypt any MIME encrypted parts found in the selected content
(ie. "multipart/encrypted" parts). Status of the decryption will
be reported (currently only supported with --format=json and
--format=sexp) and on successful decryption the
multipart/encrypted part will be replaced by the decrypted
Decryption expects a functioning gpg-agent(1) to provide any
needed credentials. Without one, the decryption will fail.

Note: It is most common to use notmuch reply with a search string
matching a single message, (such as id:<message-id>), but it can be
useful to reply to several messages at once. For example, when a series
of patches are sent in a single thread, replying to the entire thread
allows for the reply to comment on issues found in multiple patches. The
default format supports replying to multiple messages at once, but the
JSON and S-Expression formats do not.
This command supports the following special exit status codes
