Dear Notmuch list, I have used notmuch (very happily) for a number of years with alot as my client. I'm now trying out the emacs client (with doom emacs), which is very cool so far. But I am struggling with two particular points around sending emails and cannot solve them on my own. I am also new to emacs, so please forgive my struggles that stem from being a newbie there.
1. Mail gets sent but doesn't save in the correct directory via FCC. I use msmtpq as my sending program. Upon sending, I receive this message: "message-send-mail-with-sendmail: Sending...failed to mail for [ -oi -f h...@fastmail.com -t ] : send was successful;" The mail is sent but is not saved in the fcc dir nor entered into the notmuch database. I have enabled emacs debugger (on entry with different functions related to sending) and stepped through the process but didn't see any pertinent information in the messages. My fcc line reads `(setq notmuch-fcc-dirs "fastmail/Sent +sent +inbox +sent-new")` (fuller notmuch-emacs config below). Any guidance on fixing or further troubleshooting (what should I look for on debugger) is appreciated. 2. I have my emacs setup to prefer utf-8 encoding in basically all situations. Emails I send with emacs seem to be correctly encoded. But the Content-Type header is set only to "text/plain" rather than "text/plain; charset=utf-8" (as it is in alot and as it should be). Further, there is no Content-Transfer-Encoding header set. Based on my reading of the emacs message mode docs, Content-Transfer-Encoding should be set on the fly depending on the Content-Type and other factors (to either "quoted-printable" or "base64" for "text/plain"). Perhaps I should not worry about these headers; but it seems like they affect whether mail gets delivered at certain providers and certainly how it displays. Any advice on getting both Content-Type and Content-Transfer-Encoding to set correctly? (Without my settings that prefer utf-8, my emails are ascii encoded and the Content-Type is set as "text/plain; charset=us-ascii" but still no Content-Transfer-Encoding.) I'm on macos 10.15.7, with notmuch .35 (via homebrew), and GNU emacs 28.1 (from https://github.com/d12frosted/homebrew-emacs-plus via homebrew). Thank you for your help and for the tremendous software! hgv ``` ;;; $DOOMDIR/config.el -*- lexical-binding: t; -*- ---snip--- ;; mainly force utf-8 (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-default-coding-systems 'utf-8) (set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-selection-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-file-name-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-clipboard-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8) ---snip--- ;; gnus-alias (autoload 'gnus-alias-determine-identity "gnus-alias" "" t) (add-hook 'message-setup-hook 'gnus-alias-determine-identity) (setq gnus-alias-identity-alist '(("fastmail" ---snip--- )) ;; Use "fastmail" identity by default (setq gnus-alias-default-identity "fastmail") ;; Define rules to match work identity (setq gnus-alias-identity-rules ---snip--- )) ;; sorting out regex and replying (setq gnus-alias-override-user-mail-address t) (setq gnus-alias-unknown-identity-rule 'default) ;; auto save (setq message-auto-save-directory "~/.config/emacs/.local/cache/notmuch/unsaved-drafts") ;; supposedly outdated ;; now sourced from language (setq message-default-charset "utf-8") (setq mm-coding-system-priorities '(utf-8)) ;; notmuch (after! notmuch (setq +notmuch-sync-backend "notmuch new" +notmuch-delete-tags '("+ztrash") +notmuch-spam-tags '("+spam") notmuch-draft-tags '("+draft" "-new") notmuch-archive-tags '("-inbox" "-unread")) (setq notmuch-mua-compose-in 'new-window) (setq notmuch-mua-user-agent-function 'notmuch-mua-user-agent-notmuch) (setq message-kill-buffer-on-exit t) (setq message-send-mail-function 'message-send-mail-with-sendmail) (setq sendmail-program "msmtpq" mail-specify-envelope-from t message-sendmail-f-is-evil nil mail-envelope-from 'header message-sendmail-envelope-from 'header) (setq notmuch-address-save-filename "~/.config/emacs/.local/notmuch/address-cache") (setq notmuch-draft-folder "fastmail/Drafts") ;; overwritten from ~/.config/emacs/.local/straight/repos/notmuch/emacs/notmuch-draft.el (defun notmuch-draft--mark-deleted () (when notmuch-draft-id (notmuch-tag notmuch-draft-id '("+ztrash")))) (setq notmuch-fcc-dirs "fastmail/Sent +sent +inbox +sent-new") (setq notmuch-identities ---snip--- (setq notmuch-mua-send-hook '(notmuch-mua-attachment-check)) (setq notmuch-show-empty-saved-searches nil) (setq notmuch-multipart/alternative-discouraged '("text/plain" "text/html")) (setq notmuch-saved-searches ---snip--- ))) ``` _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to notmuch-le...@notmuchmail.org
