Hello Ralf,

from the mutt manual:

3.1. Pattern Modifier

Many of Mutt's commands allow you to specify a pattern to match (limit,
tag-pattern, delete-pattern, etc.). Table 4.4, “Pattern modifiers” shows
several ways to select messages.

Table 4.4. Pattern modifiers


~H EXPR   │messages with a spam attribute matching EXPR
