xdg-email

SYNOPSIS
       xdg-email [--utf8] [--cc address] [--bcc address] [--subject text]
                 [--body text] [--attach file] [mailto-uri | address(es)]

       xdg-email {--help | --manual | --version}

DESCRIPTION
       xdg-email opens the user's preferred e-mail composer in order to send a
       mail to address(es) or mailto-uri. RFC2368 defines mailto: URIs.
       xdg-email limits support to, cc, subject and body fields in mailto-uri,
       all other fields are silently ignored.  address(es) must follow the
       syntax of RFC822. Multiple addresses may be provided as separate
       arguments.

       All information provided on the command line is used to prefill
       corresponding fields in the user's e-mail composer. The user will have
       the opportunity to change any of this information before actually
       sending the e-mail.

       xdg-email is for use inside a desktop session only. It is not
       recommended to use xdg-email as root.

OPTIONS
       --utf8
           Indicates that all command line options that follow are in utf8.
           Without this option, command line options are expected to be
           encoded according to locale. If the locale already specifies utf8
           this option has no effect. This option does not affect mailto URIs
           that are passed on the command line.

       --cc address
           Specify a recipient to be copied on the e-mail.

       --bcc address
           Specify a recipient to be blindly copied on the e-mail.

       --subject text
           Specify a subject for the e-mail.

       --body text
           Specify a body for the e-mail. Since the user will be able to make
           changes before actually sending the e-mail, this can be used to
           provide the user with a template for the e-mail.  text may contain
           linebreaks.

       --attach file
           Specify an attachment for the e-mail.  file must point to an
           existing file.

           Some e-mail applications require the file to remain present after
           xdg-email returns.

       --help
           Show command synopsis.
           makes xdg-email do more verbose reporting on stderr. Setting a
           higher value increases the verbosity.

EXIT CODES
       An exit code of 0 indicates success while a non-zero exit code
       indicates failure. The following failure codes can be returned:

       1
           Error in command line syntax.

       2
           One of the files passed on the command line did not exist.

       3
           A required tool could not be found.

       4
           The action failed.
