SYNOPSIS [option]...


A simple tool to help you, or more specifically me, keep in touch with people. All it does is notify you if you’re failing to keep in contact. It is just a quick solution to a simple problem, as long as you use abook and your sent mail is easily accessible.


--version Show program’s version number and exit
-h, --help Show this help message and exit
-a <file>, --addressbook=<file>
 Address book to read contacts from
-t <mailbox|msmtp>, --sent-type=<mailbox|msmtp>
 Sent source type(mailbox or msmtp)
-r, --all Include all recipients(CC and BCC fields)
--no-all Include only the first recipient(TO field)
-s <name>, --field=<name>
 Addressbook field to use for frequency value
-n, --notify Display reminders using notification popups
--no-notify Display reminders on standard out
-v, --verbose Produce verbose output
-q, --quiet Output only matches and errors

Mailbox options

-m <mailbox>, --mbox=<mailbox>
 Mailbox used to store sent mail

msmtp log options

-l <file>, --log=<file>
 msmtp log to parse
-g, --gmail Log from a gmail account(use accurate filter)
--no-gmail msmtp log for non-gmail account


The configuration file, ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME:-~/.config}/blanco/config.ini, is a simple INI format file for storing defaults for the command line options. For example:

sent type = msmtp
field = custom5

With the above configuration file the default sent mail source will be a msmtp logfile, and frequency information will be stored in abook’s custom5 field.


None known.
