Thanks a lot, the command works great!
Since I wanted to do it through clipboard I did the following:
Set a macro in neomutt:
macro index,pager B |'xsel --clipboard'
This pastes a message to clipboard with xsel. Then in my git
repo I run:
xsel -ob | b4 am -t -o - | git am -s
And since I am using lazygit quite often I set a custom
command also under "B" to do it quickly:
- key: "B"
command: "xsel -ob | b4 am -t -o - | git am -s"
loadingText: "B4 with message from clipboard"

Maybe it will be helpful to someone else.
