copy & pasting to also include hyperlinks

I'm subscribed to several sites using their rss feed, and occasionally I like
to save the content by highlighting everything and then copy and pasting it to
an org document. It works but it doesn't get any hyperlinks, so how else can I
get it please?

Thanks
Sharon.

[OT] about gmane

Sorry to bring this here, but I cannot get a connection to gmane and
got here through my regular nntp server (enews.newsguy.com).

I'm unable to connect to news.gmane.org, and am getting prompted for a
username.  Can anyone verify that gmane is up?

Last time that happened it was because my ISP had been blackballed off
gmane, but I checked at http://gmane.org/denied.php and did not see
my outward facing IP there.

Any other reasons why I might suddenly be getting a username prompt
with gnus trys to connect to gmane?

just use "n" to the very end?

Is it possible to just key "n" to the end of the mail folder to read the
recent emails/postings, and still use "n" to open the next folder and show the
next unread posting please? And then just continue in a like fashion until
you've caught up with all your recent emails please? If so, how?

Thanks
Sharon.

Line length when writing an email

I've recently found that when writing an email the line length is not
recognised, in spite of having
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq-default fill-column 78)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
in my '.gnus.el'. When replying to an email the line length very often goes to
the edge of the window, even with 'Word Wrap (visual line mode)' enabled.

How can I get it to just stop at a line length of just 78 characters please?

Thanks
Sharon.

Unicode characters messed up in recent Emacs 24.4 versions?

I'm using Gnus as shipped with Emacs (fresh off of the source repository).

Am I the only one having problems with non-ASCII characters in HTML mail (mostly posted from Outlook) buffers? Instead of shopwing the correct chinese (or whatever) characters they all come out as sequences of control characters (^A^B^D^E etc...)

This does not necessarily have anything to do with Gnus, or even Emacs. I'm constantly recompiling Emacs and I'm using Arch Linux so I'm also constantly updating the operating system. Any suggestions as to where I should start looking would be appreciated.

Regards,
Elias

Ma Gnus 0.9 in Emacs pretest

I had that I read that Ma Gnus 0.9 will be the version in Emacs 24.4.  I
installed the first pretest (24.3.90) and it doesn't seem like Gnus is
updated past 5.13.

Is 0.9 still on for inclusion?

With Agent try 

Mark as downloadable  J#
Fetch downloadable    Ju
or
Catchup undownloaded  Jc

Hope this helps.

How to force Ma gnus to download specific msgs en-masse

Setup: Debian (jesse)
Running very recent ma-gnus 

Can anyone tell me how to force gnus to download specific msgs in
large quantitly (meaning several thousand)

I used to use the agent very heavily for some yrs but for last several
yrs since gmane holds msgs so long I faded away from that practice.

Now forgotten just about all I ever new... plus some of it has changes
possibly. 

I need a quick and dirty way since this will be a seldom done thing to
download specific authors from specific groups.

Selecting that part en-masse is not a problem... I know how to do
that.  But had the notion I could put the download (toggle) mark on
them (%) on them and they would get downloaded.... 

Can anyone explain in as few steps as necessary how I might do this?

Imagine, I open a group.... select 10 (though it will be many more)
and somehow force gnus to download them...

gnutls.c: [0] (Emacs) fatal error: An unexpected TLS

This situation appeared when I upgraded Emacs -
yesterday, I think. I have:

GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.8.6)
 of 2013-12-22 on binet, modified by Debian

When I try to send Usenet posts it says:

"Sending news via Aioe.org using nntp...

gnutls.c: [0] (Emacs) fatal error: An unexpected TLS
packet was received.

441 Article has no body -- just headers

Couldn't send message via news: 441 Article has no body
-- just headers"

What I can see sending is done anyway - that is how I
send this, so if you read my message, that worked. But
it seems my Gnus thinks it didn't happen as the message
ends up in drafts (where it hangs when I try to send
it, as well).

graphics in gmail, etc?

I can get graphics, ie pictures, in newsgroups and in rss posts, but not in
gmail, and I'm not sure about normal emails as I haven't received anything
with graphics in it yet.

This is the relevant sections from my '.gnus.el' and 'testing-gnus.el' -
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;;; to get images in html posts
;; Inline images?
(setq mm-attachment-override-types '("image/.*"))
; You need install the ClI brower 'w3m' and Emacs plugin 'w3m'
(setq mm-text-html-renderer 'w3m)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

What should I do to get graphical images in specifically gmail, and
secondarily my normal mail settings please?

Thanks
Sharon.

Killed my emacs, and now getting a much better gnus experience!

I've just had a most peculiar problem, in that I added two new pop3 accounts to
my '.gnus.el', and then tried to get mail from them in gnus. They hung on so
long I knew that they were failing to connect even after waiting ten minutes,
but they were stopping me doing anything else neither in gnus nor in emacs. So I
found the emacs pid number and did a kill -9 on it to force closure.

Now I've restarted it, and commented out those two pop3 accounts before starting
gnus again, and now emails are being received to 'nnml:mail.misc' again instead of
its more usual 'nnml:normal' and I'm getting the much nicer email headings of
just 'From: Subject: To: Date:' which is much nicer and easier to understand
than getting everything thrown at me.

But how do I make these changes permanent please? They are much nicer and easier
to read and understand, so I'd like to keep them if at all possible please.

Sharon.
