notmuch-address - output addresses from matching messages


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


       Search  for  messages  matching the given search terms, and display the
       addresses from them. Duplicate addresses are filtered out.

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

       Supported options for address include

              Presents  the  results  in  either  JSON, S-Expressions, newline
              character separated plain-text (default), or null character sep‐
              arated  plain-text  (compatible  with  xargs(1)  -0 option where

              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.

              Controls which information appears in the  output.  This  option
              can  be given multiple times to combine different outputs.  When
              neither --output=sender nor --output=recipients is given, --out-
              put=sender is implied.

              sender Output all addresses from the From header.

                     Note:  Searching  for  sender  should be much faster than
                     searching for recipients, because  sender  addresses  are
                     cached  directly  in the database whereas other addresses
                     need to be fetched from message files.

                     Output all addresses from the To, Cc and Bcc headers.

              count  Print the count of how many times was the address encoun‐
                     tered during search.

                     Note:  With this option, addresses are printed only after
                     the whole search is finished. This may take long time.

                     Output only the email addresses instead of the full mail‐
                     boxes  with names and email addresses. This option has no
                     effect on the JSON or S-Expression output formats.

              Control the deduplication of results.

              no     Output all occurrences of addresses in the matching  mes‐
                     sages. This is not applicable with --output=count.

                     Deduplicate  addresses  based on the full, case sensitive
                     name and email address, or mailbox. This  is  effectively
                     the  same as piping the --deduplicate=no output to sort |
                     uniq, except for  the  order  of  results.  This  is  the

                     Deduplicate  addresses  based  on  the  case  insensitive
                     address part of the mailbox. Of all  the  variants  (with
                     different  name  or  case),  print the one occurring most
                     frequently among the matching messages. If --output=count
                     is specified, include all variants in the count.

              This option can be used to present results in either chronologi‐
              cal order (oldest-first) or reverse  chronological  order  (new-

              By  default,  results will be displayed in reverse chronological
              order, (that is, the newest results will be displayed first).

              However, if either --output=count  or  --deduplicate=address  is
              specified,  this  option is ignored and the order of the results
              is unspecified.

              A message is called "excluded" if it matches at least one tag in
              search.tag_exclude that does not appear explicitly in the search
              terms. This option specifies whether to omit  excluded  messages
              in the search process.

              The  default value, true, prevents excluded messages from match‐
              ing the search terms.

              false allows excluded messages to match search terms and  appear
              in displayed results.


       This command supports the following special exit status codes
