MU-INIT(1)		    General Commands Manual		    MU-INIT(1)

NAME
       mu init - initialize the	mu message database

SYNOPSIS
       mu init [options]

DESCRIPTION
       mu init is the subcommand for setting up	the mu message database. After
       mu init has completed, you can run mu index

OPTIONS
       Note, some of the general options are described in the  mu(1)  man-page
       and not here, as	they apply to multiple mu commands.

       --muhome
	      use  an  alternative  directory  to store	and read the database,
	      write the	logs, etc. By default,	mu  uses  XDG  Base  Directory
	      Specification  (e.g.  on	Linux  this  defaults  to ~/.cache/mu,
	      ~/.config/mu). Earlier versions of mu defaulted to ~/.mu,	 which
	      now requires --muhome=~/.mu.

       -m, --maildir=_maildir_
	      starts  searching	at _maildir_. By default, mu uses whatever the
	      MAILDIR environment variable is set to; if it  is	 not  set,  it
	      tries  ~/Maildir.	 The  maildir must be on a single file-system;
	      and symbolic links are not supported.

       --my-address=_my-email-address_
	      specifies	that some e-mail addresses are 'my-address'  (--my-ad-
	      dress  can  be used multiple times). This	is used	by mu cfind --
	      any e-mail address found in the  address	fields	of  a  message
	      which  also  has _my-email-address_ in one of its	address	fields
	      is considered a personal e-mail address. This  allows  you,  for
	      example,	to  filter  out	 (mu cfind --personal) addresses which
	      were merely seen in mailing list messages.

	      _my-email-address_ can be	either a plain e-mail address (such as
	      foo@example.com),	 or a regular-expression (of the 'Basic	POSIX'
	      flavor), wrapped in 0 (such as 0foo-.*@example\.com).

ENVIRONMENT
       mu init uses MAILDIR to find the	user's Maildir	if  it	has  not  been
       specified  explicitly  with --maildir=_maildir_.	If MAILDIR is not set,
       mu init uses ~/Maildir.

RETURN VALUE
       mu init returns 0 upon successful completion, or	a non-zero  exit  code
       if there	was some error.
