hi notmuch folks-- i'd like to be able to forward several messages from a given thread (up to and including the whole thread) to someone else. I use notmuch-emacs.
I don't think it's possible to do this at the moment; notmuch-show-forward-message just forwards the message where the point is located, even if the current region covers more than one message. I'd be happy to have a notmuch-show-forward-thread or notmuch-show-forward-all-expanded-messages or notmuch-show-forward-messages-from-region capability, but my elisp-fu is weak. I'd be happy to test if someone wanted to send me a patch though :) Background: one of the reasons that people often give for the terrible e-mail practice of top-posting-with-all-previous-messages-trailing is that they want to be able to send a message to someone else and have them be able to see the whole thread (never mind that these kind of reverse-chronological forwarded messages are difficult to read). I'd like to be able to respond to those claims with something like "reasonable MUAs should let you easily forward all messages in a thread if you want to catch someone up." I consider notmuch-emacs a reasonable MUA :) thanks everyone for notmuch, --dkg
