What do you mean by "local copies"? If you mean files
with messages on you disk, don't you have that already?

For example, I have your message (the one I quote) as

~/News/agent/nntp/Aioe.org/gnu/emacs/gnus/5737

Not that I use those files very often directly as I
think most things are preferrable to do through Gnus
anyway.

Put it this way: what problem/situation do you have?

Why not just install Leafnode?

archiving threads one contributes to

Hello,

Is there a way to tell gnus to keep local copies of newsgroup threads to
which I've contributed? Ideally I would like to have them to be archived
in some local folder alongside my mail.

Thanks,

Alan

One folder in local imap not seen

Hi

I am using 

,----
| gmail <-> offlineimap <-> dovecot tunnel <-> local maildir <-> dovecot tunnel <-> gnus
`----

to access my mail. I have one folder which is in gmail, synched to my
local maildir, visible via localhost from the Mail app (I am using OSX)
but I can't see it in gnus.

It is not listed in under the servers, not even as killed folder.

Any suggestions how I can see this folder from gnus?

The name of the folder is 

,----
| [Mailbox]/Later
`----

while there are sever other folders like

,----
| [Mailbox].To Buy
`----

and all

What happened to nnslashdot and nnultimate

I experimented with shimbun but as far as I understand it its more or
less only there to show newstickers but not to view and post comments at
least thats not what I see in heise.de newsticker.

So I digged around further thought ok slashdot is pretty famous geek
site, so lets search for that and gnus and I found gnus documentation
which mentions nnslashdot and nnultimate as methods for gnus groups.

http://sunsite.ualberta.ca/Documentation/Gnu/emacs-21.1/html_chapter/gnus_6.html#SEC173

In the current documentation I dont find this methods anymore.

Did they just got removed and replaced with nothing else? I hate this
fuckin web-forums. So is there no way to use my themed consistend
newsreader (gnus) instead of this laggy flashy forums sites?

Well, I don't know (what was first).

Yeah, it is interesting, I didn't know of either
electric or buffer-list. I knew of the command `C-x
C-b' but I thought that was a buffer-menu command, as
another of the do-something and then
do-something-other-window (or perhaps
do-something-split-window). So it was interesting to
learn there were so many ways to do (superficially at
least) the same thing.

I didn't manage to follow the description of keys, but
that much I understood that you don't like changes to
the window configuration. Here I agree 100%... I have
managed to rid my Emacs of some of those cases which
are, as you say, disruptive, but one in particular

Drafts created when editing mails with Outorg


Hi List, 

I use gnus/message-mode for emails, but often edit my mails in full
Org-mode with Outorg (see installation instruction at the end of this
post). This works by doing M-# # (or M-x outorg-edit-as-org) in the
message-mode buffer, and then later M-# (or M-x
outorg-copy-edits-and-exit) in the popped-up *outorg-edit-buffer* when
done with editing in Org-mode. 

The *outorg-edit-buffer* is backed-up in a tmp-file anyway via
kill-buffer-hook, so there is no need to create and save drafts from its
content. However, my draft folder is full of entries like this

,----
|    [  87: nobody                 ] (none)
|    [ 148: nobody                 ] (none)
|    [  26: nobody                 ] (none)
`----

that contain the content of these temporary *outorg-edit-buffers*, e.g.

,----
| * --text follows this line--

Ha-ha, stop it :)

Yes, the server buffer alternative is good, too.

What? :) Why are you asking me that?

What I can see `add-to-list' doesn't work like that,
for an arbitrary number of elements.

Like: (+ 1 2 3) - that works. But:

(setq         some-list '((1 2)))      ; ((1 2)), but...
(add-to-list 'some-list '(3 4) '(5 6)) ; ... is ((1 2) (3 4)),
                                       ; not ((1 2) (3 4) (5 6))

But OK: I never use those `add-to-list', `add-hook',
etc. - I just `setq' once, plain and simple and much
easier to not get confused, as you only set things
once. If you wish to be careful, check the variable's
value first. If it is empty (as is often the case),
just set it to whatever you want safe and sound. If it
isn't empty, and you deem the contents to be of value,
just include it when you set it yourself.

So for me it looks like this:

How to use Gnus to read newsgroup like gnu.emacs.gnus?

I tried the following code:

(setq user-mail-address "tuhdo1710 <at> gmail.com")
(setq user-full-name "Tu, Do")
(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "gnu.emacs.gnus"))

But it didn't work. Gnus gave me error:

>>> (error gnu.emacs.gnus/nntp Name or service not known)
nntp (gnu.emacs.gnus) open error: '>>> (error gnu.emacs.gnus/nntp Name or service not known)'. 
Continue? (y or n) n
Couldn't open server on gnu.emacs.gnus

Thanks.

Intermittent problems accessing gmail via POP3

I've used Gnus on the then-current Debian Stable for years.  As of a week or so ago, it intermittently (over half the time) fails to get or send email.  

When I press 3 g, I get in the minibuffer:

Mail source (pop :server pop.gmail.com :port 995 :user myname <at> gmail.com :password ******** :stream ssl) error (POP SSL connexion failed).  Continue? (yes or no) 

The *Messages* buffer shows

nnml: Reading incoming mail from pop...
Opening TLS connection to `pop.gmail.com'...
Opening TLS connection with `gnutls-cli -p 995 pop.gmail.com'...done
Opening TLS connection to `pop.gmail.com'...done
byte-code: Cannot get new mail

If I try to send an email, I get

Sending...
Sending via mail...
Opening TLS connection to `pop.gmail.com'...
Opening TLS connection with `gnutls-cli -p 995 pop.gmail.com'...done
Opening TLS connection to `pop.gmail.com'...done
byte-code: POP SSL connexion failed

That seems odd, as my .emacs shows a line starting

(smtpmail-auth-credentials (quote (("smtp.gmail.com" 587 ...

Has anyone seen this?  Do you have a fix?  Is there an easy way to get more information about what's happening?


Thanks,

Bill
