How to search in mutt and select ALL mails ?


I want to delete all emails with a given Subject, but when I search in mutt with "/ ^ ~s Test" it selects just the next one, not all.

How can I do this ?

To tag such messages, I would type 'T~s Test'

The capital-T is what applies the search to the tagging.

Check your help screen for the command tag-pattern.

Yes it works!
Search and then tag was the wrong way.

Thank you, mackdav !
