       lei - local email interface

       lei [OPTIONS] COMMAND

       lei is a command-line tool for importing and searching email,
       regardless of whether it is from a personal mailbox or a public-inbox.
       lei supports a local, writable store built on top of
       public-inbox-v2-format(5) and public-inbox-extindex(1).  lei-q(1)
       provides an interface for querying messages across the lei store and
       read-only local and remote "externals" (inboxes and external indices).

       Warning: lei is still in its early stages and may destroy mail.  Be
       sure to have backups of destinations lei writes to.

       Available in public-inbox 1.7.0+.

       -c NAME=VALUE
           Override configuration "NAME" to "VALUE".

       -C DIR
           Change current working directory to the specified directory before
           running the command.  This option can be given before or after
           "COMMAND" and is accepted by all lei subcommands except
