# NAME

aerc - the world's best email client

# SYNOPSIS

_aerc_

For a guided tutorial, use *:help tutorial*.

# RUNTIME COMMANDS

To execute a command, press ':' to bring up the command interface. Commands may
also be bound to keys, see *aerc-config*(5) for details. In some contexts, such
as the terminal emulator, ';' is used to bring up the command interface.

Different commands work in different contexts, depending on the kind of tab you
have selected.

## GLOBAL COMMANDS

These commands work in any context.

*cd* <directory>
	Changes aerc's current working directory.

*pwd*
	Displays aerc's current working directory in the status bar.

*term* [command...]
	Opens a new terminal tab with a shell running in the current working
	directory, or the specified command.

*prev-tab* [n], *next-tab* [n]
	Cycles to the previous or next tab in the list, repeating n times
	(default: 1).

*quit*
	Exits aerc.

## MESSAGE LIST COMMANDS

*cf* <folder>
	Change the folder shown in the message list.

*compose*
	Open the compose window to send a new email. The new email will be sent with
	the current account's outgoing transport configuration, see
	*aerc-config*(5) for details on configuring outgoing emails.

*next-message* <n>[%], *prev-message* <n>[%]

	opens a new terminal tab to show the result.
