logo NeoMutt for Homebrew


Homebrew is a package manager for macOS. It allows you to easily install and manage software that didn’t come pre-installed on your system and that isn’t available on the App Store.

NeoMutt can be installed with Homebrew.

The instructions for installing Homebrew are provided on the Homebrew homepage.


Once you have Homebrew installed, then getting NeoMutt is as simple as:

$ brew install neomutt


Homebrew automatically updates itself when you run a brew command. It never updates a package, such as NeoMutt, unless you tell it to.

When Homebrew itself is updated, it checks to see if the NeoMutt package definition has been updated, as would be the case shortly after a new version of NeoMutt is released. You will only be able to install the latest release of NeoMutt if Homebrew is up-to-date. You can check this by updating Homebrew manually.

$ brew update

To upgrade NeoMutt to the latest version, run:

$ brew upgrade neomutt


To remove NeoMutt from your system, run:

$ brew uninstall neomutt

This command will not remove any files from your home directory, such as NeoMutt configuration files.
