Mark Message Expirable, it disappear immediately.

I currently exprience an abnormal behavior of lossing Expirable
messages. Whenever the msgs are marked expirable, they will be gone
forever, even with `C-u RET' can not get them back.

It used to be different way,That is even the msg is marked expireable, I
still be able to pull them show up in summary buffer. Things changed
after I run a command `gnus-summary-expire-articles-now' at a time. I
checked all possible locations that this command might have revised,
including the custom file.

My question is how did this happen, how to undo the `side-effect` of
`gnus-summary-expire-articles-now'.

About the RSS feeds, try putting then in a lower level (I keep then in
level 4 - S-L-4), this will not only save you from this messages, but
speed up (A LOT) updated in the important groups (mail)

'seen' mark not preserved for nnmaildir

I'm observing something rather weird with the seen mark and my
mails. Let me try to explain:

I can see that the mark is stored in my .newsrc.eld file, among others,
like expire, or reply. However, when I start gnus, all mark related
entries are loaded into gnus-newsrc-alist, except seen. If I call
gnus-read-newsrc-file after that, the seen marks appear in that alist as
well and all is fine. Well almost. Whenever I run
gnus-group-get-new-news after that, all seen marks disappear, from the
alist as well as from the .newsrc.eld file.

AFAICT this happens exclusively to the seen mark, all other marks
preserved correctly either in the .newsrc.eld file or the maildir
backend (e.g. read, expire). This also happens only to maildir groups,
not nntp groups. Their seen mark is stored and loaded. I don't know how
other mail backends would behave. I only have a single nnmaildir backend
(and nntp) and no actual mail sources.

I was also able to replicate this on a minimal gnus init file. With no
settings other that the select method. I'm not even sure this is a bug
or just intended default behavior. I tried searching all relevant gnus
and emacs mailing lists and google, but didn't come up with anything.

If you're curious why this is actually a such problem for me: I only
noticed it when I set up spam.el to check my mail for spam when entering
the summary. It works beautifully, with the exception that it checks all
my mail over and over again, unless that seen mark is preserved and
gnus-newsgroup-seen set correctly.

I really appreciate any help with this and sorry for the rather longish

gnus-icalendar


gnus-icalendar is the best thing ever.

I've got it working well enough with exchange.  I can track meeting
invites that hit my inbox from Microsoft Outlook users, so I'm happy
with that.

But I want to be able to generate my own meeting invites and mail them
out to people.  Is there a facility for that in gnus-icalendar?

Spam messages not marked as expirable when exiting spam group

I'm running Gnus v5.13 on GNU Emacs 23.1.1.

I'm using the Spam package (with the Spam Statistics package) to filter
out spam from my email.  The (hopefully) relevant part of my .gnus.el file
is:

(setq
 ;; Declare backends/processors for splitting incoming mail:
 spam-use-regex-headers t
 spam-regex-headers-spam '("^X-UiO-Spam-Score: sssss.*") ;spamAssasin score >= 5
 spam-use-stat t

 ;; Declare spam and ham groups:
 gnus-spam-newsgroup-contents
 '(("spam" gnus-group-spam-classification-spam)
   (".*" gnus-group-spam-classification-ham))

 ;; Training the spam detection tools:
 spam-process-ham-in-spam-groups t
 gnus-spam-process-newsgroups '((".*" ((spam spam-use-stat)
				       (ham spam-use-stat))))

 ;; Moving processed spam:
 gnus-spam-process-destinations '((".*" "nnimap:spam"))
 ;; Moving processed ham:
 spam-mark-ham-unread-before-move-from-spam-group t
 gnus-ham-process-destinations '(("spam" "nnimap:INBOX"))
 )
(spam-initialize)

(setq
 nnimap-split-inbox "INBOX"
 nnimap-split-download-body t		; For spam-stat
 nnimap-split-rule 'nnmail-split-fancy
 nnmail-split-fancy
 '(|
   [...]
   (: spam-split)
   [...]
   ))

In section 8.20.4 "Spam and Ham Processors" of the Gnus manual, it says:
"When you leave a _spam_ group, all spam-marked articles are marked as
expired after processing with the spam processor."  This does not appear
to happen for me.

I guess there is something I've misunderstood, or done wrong.  Can
anyone see what I've done wrong?

Here is a log from the *Messages* buffer when entering the nnimap:spam
group:

Retrieving newsgroup: nnimap:spam...
nnimap: Updating info for nnimap:spam...done
Fetching headers for nnimap:spam...
nnimap: Retrieving headers...done
Fetching headers for nnimap:spam...done
Generating summary...done
Marking unseen articles as spam
No more unread articles

So it appears the group is considered spam. ("Marking unseen articles as spam")

When exiting the group nnimap:spam:

Exiting summary buffer and applying spam rules
Registering 1 specific articles as spam using backend spam-use-stat
1 spam messages were registered by backend spam-use-stat.
Registering 1 specific articles as spam using backend spam-use-move
Moving to nnimap:spam: (121)...
nnimap: Setting marks in spam...done
nnimap: Updating info for nnimap:spam...done
No more newsgroups
1 spam messages were registered by backend spam-use-move.
Expiring articles...done
nnimap: Setting marks in spam...done
nnimap: Setting marks in spam...done
No more unread newsgroups

Looking into the Maildir of the IMAP server (dovecot), the mail file has
gotten the "Seen" flag, but not the "Expirable" flag.

When entering nnimap:spam again:

Retrieving newsgroup: nnimap:spam...
nnimap: Updating info for nnimap:spam...done
Fetching headers for nnimap:spam...
nnimap: Retrieving headers...done
Fetching headers for nnimap:spam...done
Generating summary...done
Marking unseen articles as spam
No more unread articles
Mark set

And the message is still marked with $.  If I manually mark it
expirable, it stays so.

Exiting nnimap:spam again:

No more articles [2 times]
Exiting summary buffer and applying spam rules
Expiring articles...done
nnimap: Setting marks in spam...done
No more unread newsgroups

New local network newserver very slow to connect with gnus

Recently I decided to upgrade / replace the machine I use as a local
newsserver (running leafnode), I moved the news spool onto the new
machine (so everything was the same) got rid of old machine and set the
new machine with the same name and ip address as the old.

gnus seems happy with this, new articles appear as new, old articles can
be retrieved/searched :-) The one problem is when the connection closes
due to a timeout, re-opening the connection with gnus-group-get-new-news
takes around 10 seconds before the connection is made. There was no such
delay with the old machine and telnet hostname 119 from an xterm with the
new machine is also instant (as is the pan newsreader)

I've poked around ~/News and can't see anything looking like a relic of
the old machines fingerprint, is there anything elsewhere I need to
refresh?

I'm using gnus-select-method '(nntp "hostname") ..

If I go to the server buffer and manually close and reopen the nntp
connection there's a similar delay on open.

      User-Agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.0.50 (gnu/linux)

How to handle duplicate emails with nnimap?

I'm using Gnus v5.13 with GNU Emacs 23.1.1.

I recently switched from nnml to nnimap as mail backend.  When using
nnml, all duplicate emails were split to a separate folder, using the
following setup:

(setq
 nnmail-message-id-cache-length 2000
 nnmail-split-methods 'nnmail-split-fancy
 nnmail-split-fancy
 '(|
   ...
   ("gnus-warning" "duplicate" "duplikater")
   ...
   )
 ...
 )

However, after switching to nnimap (and setting nnimap-split-rule to
nnmail-split-fancy), this no longer works.  The message IDs are inserted
into nnmail-message-id-cache-file as before -- indeed, even the
duplicate IDs are inserted -- but duplicate messages no longer get the
"Gnus-Warning" header.

Am I doing something wrong, or is there another mechanism for handling
duplicate messages with nnimap?

Empty Group Always in Group Buffer

When beginning gnus my INBOX group always shows up with an * indicating
a ticked email, but the box is reported empty, shows 0, and when I C-u
RET I am told the INBOX is empty. If I go
into the folder on my computer that corresponds to the INBOX it is
indeed empty of all mail. Other groups to which I am subscribed, and which are
empty, do not show up. Groups to which I am subscribed, and which do
have ticked messages show up correctly.

Would anyone point me to the right keywords,terms I need to search in
the manual to figure out how to fix this? My googling has not been very helpful.

Thank you,

Re: washing and `article-translate-strings' in what hook?

That's exactly right!

But how is anyone to realize this?

Because there is no article argument to
`article-translate-strings', the current article is
all it can be applied to (?). So then shouldn't it say
there is none, if there isn't?

Or did this happen to some *other* article which
I have been unaware of?

And why did it work calling it interactively but not
doing the same from Lisp?
Is `gnus-article-prepare-hook' the wrong place so at
that time there isn't a buffer set to work
on, interactively?

/The hairdresser

PS. But anyway, not it works so unless you feel like
answering all these question no one will say you
should. DS.

washing and `article-translate-strings' in what hook?

I have a function that is

    (defun gnus-article-wash-more ()
      "Perform additional article washing."
      (interactive)
      (article-translate-strings
       '(
         ("Sendt fra min iPad" "")
         ("Skickat från Yahoo Mail för iPhone" "")
         ;; ...
         ))
      (gnus-article-strip-multiple-blank-lines) )

which works when called interactively from an
article buffer.

However I can't find a hook to put it in to have it
executed automatically each time!

I tried all the gnus-article--hooks, but none had any
effect (in this context at least).

This is confusing because I already have a hook that
is

    ;; reset: (setq gnus-article-prepare-hook nil)
    (defun gnus-article-prepare-hook-f ()
      (gnus-article-hide-signature nil 1)
      (gnus-article-fill-cited-article) )
    (add-hook 'gnus-article-prepare-hook 'gnus-article-prepare-hook-f)

and those two things happen- just not wash-more if
I put it there as well.

Ideas?

Also, I wonder if there is an option to always perform
maximum washing?
