Use header,~regex to match against a regex. + +Most aerc installations come with some useful filters, typically installed in +/usr/share/aerc/filters.

For each *key=value* +option specified, the _key_ is the keystrokes pressed (in order) to invoke this +keybinding, and _value_ specifies keystrokes that aerc will simulate when the +keybinding is invoked. Generally this is used to execute commands, for example: + + rq = :reply -q<Enter> + +Pressing r, then q, will simulate typing in ":reply -q<Enter>", and execute +:reply -q accordingly. It is also possible to invoke keybindings recursively in +a similar fashion. Additionally, the following special options are available in +each binding context: + +*$noinherit* + If set to "true", global keybindings will not be effective in this context. + + Default: false + +*$ex* + This can be set to a keystroke which will bring up the command input in this + context. + + Default: <semicolon> + +In addition to letters, special keys may be specified in <angle brackets>.
