Yeah, sorry about that. That's a known bug. > So where is the difference between 'm' and 'r' coming from? The difference is that 'r' actually runs the "notmuch reply" command and that command explicitly puts your own address into the Bcc. So this is happening outside of any emacs code. When you hit 'm', though, there's not any notmuch code involved, (neither C code, nor emacs lisp), as it's currently just running `message-mail'. So we need to figure out how to configure (or hook) that to insert the Bcc, and then we can fix notmuch.el to do this without any user configuration. > I have (setq mail-self-blind t) in my .emacs, and I thought that should take > care of things, but it obviously doesn't. Ah, interesting. I'm guessing that that variable would apply to the "mail" mode stuff in emacs, but perhaps not the "message" mode stuff we're using. Yes, emacs mail support is a huge pile of very similar, but incompatible systems. Hopefully someone can fix this soon, since I really don't like the fact that I'm currently not getting copies of several messages that I'm composing and sending. -Carl -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
