This page summarises my posts on using mu4e as a powerful tool to handle email in emacs.
- Master your inbox with mu4e and org-mode
- Take control of your inbox and turn emails into todo items linked to your nicely archived emails. This gives my motivation for moving from thunderbird to mu4e.
When setting up mu4e, I advise using mbsync to download mail, and postfix to handle the sending of mail, as described in these posts
- Migrating from offlineimap to mbsync for mu4e
- Describes how I moved from using the default offlineimap to the faster mbsync for downloading mail.
- Using postfix instead of smtpmail to send email in mu4e
- Describes setting up your own mail server to speed up the sending of mail and easily handle queueing mail while offline.
The following posts describe tweaks I have made to make mu4e even better
