Mail posting in newsgroups

I read the mailing lists I am subscribed to as newsgroups through Gmane.
Lately, I've been having problems with posting through Gmane --- posts
don't reach the mailing list for several hours, first postings to a list
don't trigger an auto-authorization message from Gmane, etc.

So, I am wondering if it is possible to post articles and followups in
Gmane newsgroups by email.  For example, if I am in the summary buffer
of the gmane.emacs.orgmode group, and hit `a', I'd like Gnus to start
composing a mail message to emacs-orgmode <at> gnu.org.  Similarly, if I am
in the summary buffer of that group and hit "F", I'd like Gnus to start
composing a *mail* reply to the selected article, with
emacs-orgmode <at> gnu.org as the "To" address.  Is there a way to do this?

I was reading about group parameters in the manual.  Will setting
to-address and to-list parameters of the gmane.emacs.orgmode group to
emacs-orgmode <at> gnu.org do what I've described above?  Unfortunately, I
can't test it without spamming the mailing list with test messages.

Thanks,
Raghu.

gnutls.c: [0] (Emacs) fatal error: Error in the pull function.

Every second time or so I check for mail/news, I get
this:

    gnutls.c: [0] (Emacs) fatal error: Error in the
    pull function.

I'm on

    Raspbian GNU/Linux 8.0 (jessie)

with

    GNU Emacs 24.4.1 (arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf) of
    2015-03-10 on bm-wb-01, modified by Debian

and

    Gnus v5.13

After I do C-g and try again, most often it works.

Citation processing in HTML articles?


I have come to rely on Gnus' syntax coloring and most especially its
ability to hide long stretches of cited text (nobody prunes their
messages anymore).  But I also deal with lots of messages that only
format well when rendered as HTML, and AFAICT there's no way to get
gnus-cite to interoperate with shr or w3m, which often leaves me
scrolling through huge blobs of cited text hoping I don't miss the one-
or two-line response.  Does anybody have a solution for this?  

FWIW, the HTML email tends to use

   <blockquote type="cite" class=""> ... </blockquote>

for each level of citation.

Thanks!

how to get a message out of nndraft:queue

Dear helpful soul,

I wanted to encrypt a message but had forgotten to get the key for this
particular mail address.  And the message miraculously was in

           1: nndraft:queue

So far so bad, collected the encryption key and tried to get the message
sent with "J D" but I got the message:

  nndraft:queue isn’t covered by the agent

Don't know what's the reason, but anyway, ventured next to edit the
message with "D e" and hoped to be able to send it with "C-c C-c". But
no way...

The only way I succeeded was with guessing "M-x gnus-draft-send-message"
could help and indeed it worked.

Do you know a keyboard shortcut for this command or a more elgant way to
behave in such situations?

Thanks a lot for enlightenment

       Dieter

message-ignored-mail-headers is ignored

No matter what I try and set in message-ignored-mail-headers,
gnus always sets the user-agent, even if ignored. Is there a
mistake in these settings or something I need to add?

(setq message-generate-headers-first t)

(setq message-ignored-mail-headers
      "^Gcc:\\|^Fcc:\\|^Xref:\\|^User-Agent:\\|^Resent-Fcc:\\|^X-Draft-From:\\|^X-Gnus-Agent-Meta-Information:\\|^X-Mailer:\\|^X-Newsreader:")

imap immediate expiry trouble


Hi,

I've got this function in my .gnus.el:

  (setq nnmail-expiry-wait-function
        (lambda (group)
          (print "DEBUG: nnmail-expiry-wait-function")
          (if (string= "INBOX" group)
              'immediate
            'never)))

When I expire a group I can see in *Messages* that the
nnmail-expiry-wait-function is indeed called, but it appears that its
return value is ignored, because recent messages from the last 24 hours
are still there. (I have explicitly marked messages for expiry with
"E".)

If I have very old messages marked for expiry, these /are/ usually
expired. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm using Gnus v5.13.

how to suppress extra newline between paragraphs in export?


Hello!

I've got a question I hope you might be able to answer. I'm trying to
add multi-paragraph item support to plain lists to my ox-jira.el
package. c.f. https://github.com/stig/ox-jira.el/issues/17

The issue I have is that I want to replace the blank line between
paragraphs in list items (which in JIRA ends the list and starts a new
paragraph) with the string =\\=. However, even when instrumenting
paragraph to check if its parent is an item (I'm being simplistic here)
there's a blank line I can't get at.

You can see it in an org document as simple as this, actually:

#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
fi

fo
#+END_EXAMPLE

Then do =M-x pp-eval-expression RET (org-element-parse-buffer) RET=

The output is:

#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE
(org-data nil
          (section
           (:begin 1 :end 7 :contents-begin 1 :contents-end 7 :post-blank 0 :post-affiliated 1 :parent #0)

Display attached pdf's with external view, not with doc-view-mode

I've been using Emacs 25.0.92 for a while and noticed that Gnus has
started to display attached pdf files with doc-view-mode (inside Emacs)
instead of launching an external viewer. In mailcap-mime-data variable I
have external viewer (Okular) first for the application/pdf MIME type
but Gnus doesn't want to respect that.

How do configure Gnus to use external viewer for attached pdf files?
