I see a function called vm-save-message-preview in vm-rfaddons.el. Please try it. If you find any functions in the add-ons that you think should be integrated into VM, please tell me and perhaps provide a good doc string and some text to go into the info manual. I will be happy to integrate them. More generally, I am thinking that there is no reason why we can't have VM folders stored in some other character set, other than US-ASCII, e.g., UTF-8. Those folders won't be interoperable with other mail clients, but do we care about that really? That should be a big win for people that need to use international character sets regularly. MIME-decoded text can then be stored directly into folders and all normal Emacs searching functions will work. This needs some thought and discussion, and it will need some amount of careful reengineering effort. The assumption about 7-bit US-ASCII is probably pervasive in a lot of VM code. So, it will need extensive testing, and I would need people that are willing to participate in that. There could be possibility of corruption of mail folders. They would need to back up email carefully. But, it could be a big win in the long run. Cheers, Uday
