The title says it all. When I press A with opened email, it proposes the following options:

  • open with
  • open in emacs
  • import in diary
  • pipe (haven't tried that)

Is there something straightforward to just save an attachment on disk?


Use e:

e runs the command mu4e-view-save-attachment

Offer to save attachment(s). If MULTI (prefix-argument) is nil, save a single one, otherwise, offer to save a range of attachments.

Alternatively, with point on an attachment name, you can use S-RET:

S-return runs the command mu4e~view-save-attach-from-binding

Save the attachement at point, or click location.
