Now you have me intrigued! Rummaging around in the source code for what might invoke bbdb-select-message I found this: (defcustom bbdb/gnus-update-records-p (lambda () (let ((bbdb-update-records-p 'query)) (bbdb-select-message))) "How `bbdb-mua-update-records' processes mail addresses in Gnus. This Gnus-specific variable is normally not used. It is a fallback if the generic (MUA-independent) variables `bbdb-mua-auto-update-p', `bbdb-update-records-p' or `bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p' result in a value of nil for the arg UPDATE-P of `bbdb-update-records'. Does that explain why bbdb-select-message is being called despite bbdb-mua-auto-update-p being nil? Way out of my depth here! >> That being said, I'm not clear what it is you are trying to achieve.
