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
                 separated  plain-text  (compatible  with  xargs(1)  -0 option
                 where available).

                 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.

              Control the deduplication of results.

              no     Output all occurences 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 chrono‐
                 logical order (oldest-first) or reverse  chronological  order

                 By  default, results will be displayed in reverse chronologi‐
                 cal order, (that is, the newest  results  will  be  displayed

                 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
                 matching 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
