I wrote recently about setting up a custom key map, and there are a couple of shortcuts for mu4e functions that I use very often with that key map.
With the following code I define
c in my key map to compose a new email. Since I previously set
C-1 to be the prefix for my map, then
C-1 c is the full keybinding. This works globally so I can start a new email from anywhere in Emacs with
I then supercharge the keybinding by using it to add a CC to an email if I am already composing one. This is done by binding
C-1 c in the
message-goto-cc. So now
C-1 c starts a new email unless I am already writing an email in which case it adds a CC instead.
While I am at it, I also add
s to my keymap for
mu4e-headers-search so I can use
C-1 s to launch a search of my emails from anywhere in Emacs.
;; bjm-map is already bound to the prefix C-1 ;; use C-1 c to compose a new email (define-key bjm-map (kbd "c") 'mu4e-compose-new) ;; use C-1 c for add cc if already in composition mode (define-key mu4e-compose-mode-map (kbd "C-1 c") 'message-goto-cc) ;; add search (define-key bjm-map (kbd "s") 'mu4e-headers-search)
