You can also use your local clone with git send-email.


aerc is an email client for your terminal.

A short demonstration can be found on https://aerc-mail.org/

Join the IRC channel: #aerc on irc.freenode.net for end-user support, and #aerc-dev for development.


Install the dependencies:

Then compile aerc:

$ make

aerc optionally supports notmuch. To enable it, you need to have a recent version of notmuch, including the header files (notmuch.h). Then compile aerc with the necessary build tags:

$ GOFLAGS=-tags=notmuch make


# make install
$ aerc

On its first run, aerc will copy the default config files to ~/.config/aerc on Linux or ~/Library/Preferences/aerc on MacOS and show the account configuration wizard.

If you redirect stdout to a file, logging output will be written to that file:

$ aerc > log
