This adds functions and variables needed for this feature to be implemented. Once it's done, the user will be able to use a prefix argument (e.g. pressing C-u m instead of m) and be able to select a From address.
By default the list of names/addresses to be used during completion will be automatically generated by the settings in the notmuch configuration file. The user can customize the notmuch-identities variable to provide an alternate list. This is based on a previous patch by Carl Worth (id:"87wrhfvk6a.fsf at yoom.home.cworth.org" and follow-ups). --- emacs/notmuch-mua.el | 23 +++++++++++++++++++++++ 1 files changed, 23 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-) diff --git a/emacs/notmuch-mua.el b/emacs/notmuch-mua.el index 003b313..2baf6bd 100644 --- a/emacs/notmuch-mua.el +++ b/emacs/notmuch-mua.el @@ -143,6 +143,29 @@ list."
