Upon opening mu4e, I expect the *mu4e-main* buffer to appear in the list generated by M-x ibuffer. However, even after typing / /, i.e., M-x ibuffer-filter-disable, the *mu4e-main* buffer is not in the list.

Is there some property of buffers that ibuffer always excludes by default? I was unable to find any such setting.


It turns out that the precise name of the buffer in question is *mu4e-main*, with a space in front, making it an invisible buffer.

To display invisible buffers in the ibuffer listing, C-u g will refresh the list, with the prefix argument toggling invisible buffers. See the documentation of ibuffer-update for more information.
