Dear all, First of all, many thanks to Carl and others for writing notmuch.
Some folks on IRC were bemoaning message-mode's annoying inability to save sent-mail to a Maildir using Fcc. I mentioned that I had written a bit of Maildir elisp code for that purpose a while back, and it was suggested that I share it with the list. Some caveats: - I've tested this a good number of times, but not very robustly, since I don't actually use it (I found that I prefer blind-copying myself). Please test it out somewhere safe, on a maildir you can afford to lose. - The hardlinking performed by `add-name-to-file' might be platform and filesystem specific. I'm using linux/ext3, and it works here. I don't know what will happen anywhere else. - I imagine there's a much better implementation inside of Wanderlust, if you can dig through all the libraries. - It's not really commented, but I hope the function names are pretty self-explanatory. - It requires that the directory in the `Fcc:' header already exist and be a maildir (i.e. have cur/, new/, and tmp/). It should be pretty simple to add in a prompt for creating a directory if it points to a nonexistent place. Anyway, here it is: http://jkr.acm.jhu.edu/jkr-maildir.el To use it, set one of the following: If you want Fcc'd messages to be marked as read: (setq message-fcc-handler-function '(lambda (destdir) (jkr/maildir-write-buffer-to-maildir destdir t))) If you want Fcc'd messages to be marked as new: (setq message-fcc-handler-function '(lambda (destdir) (jkr/maildir-write-buffer-to-maildir destdir nil))) Best, Jesse _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list email@example.com http://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
