sending mail and starttls

I have been trying to send mail via an external smtp server that
requires authentication using the following setup:

Emacs 22.0.50.1 (CVS) [Emacs W32] on a Windows XP Machine.  Cygwin
also installed for the GNU utilities, gnutls-cli, openssl etc..  Mail
client: Wanderlust 2.15.3.

The difficulty I am having right now is that the starttls negotiation
is hanging at 'Ready to start TLS.'  From browsing the code of
'starttls.el', I am guessing that the difficulty is that emacs is not
sending SIGALRM to the starttls process.  (Perhaps though I am totally
confused...)  Does anyone know the secret to sending mail to an
authenticated smtp server?

Thanks,
Hans

Re: sending mail and starttls

Just for the record, Hans got some help on his question about sending SMTP 
mail
and starttls.

Dear Rob,

Thank you for following up about this.  I got a reply, but from the
ding.gnus list, rather than from the help-emacs-windows list.  I will
paste the reply in below, as well as my followup.  In short, the
problem is solved!  The problem boils down to the fact that the
command

(signal-process (process-id process) 'SIGALRM)

does not work with Win32 Emacs, even with Cygwin also installed.  But
one can mimic that with:

(call-process "c:\\cygwin\\bin\\kill.exe" nil nil nil
                                     "-ALRM" (format "%d" (process-id 
process)))

Ediff does not show differences with EmacsW32 v1.06


Hi,

I have a problem when using Emacs and Ediff on XP. Ediff does not show any differences between two files (or directories..).
The version of ediff (that seems to be som kind of command file) is the one that is supplied with the EmacsW32 software.

Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I use that quite often without problems.

The most likeley problem is perhaps that you are missing the unix 
programs that ediff needs. Have you read about "Unix Utilities" in the 
EmacsW32 documentation. (You may find that in the help menu in Emacs if 
you have choosen to install EmacsW32.)

Did you get any error message?

Re: Autocomplete in tramp is no longer working in version Emacs-22-CvsP060625-EmacsW32-1.06

Finally, I've found the reason. Autocompletion of remote files under
Windows did work only with some rogue hacks, which did eliminate the
drive letter from file name expansion of absolute paths. These hacks
had some undesired side effects, and they were excluded end of April.

In order to get autocompletion back, we would need a more clean way
how to handle drive letters in file names (or maybe just I would need
a better understanding of such Windows interna). For the time being,
I'ld like to put it to the todo list, because the Emacs maintainers
are very busy in preparing the 22.1 release.

Best regards, Michael.

I think it will be very bad if Emacs 22.1 will not support
autocompletion on Windows, because autocompletion is such a
fundamental Emacs feature.

What do you need to understand to fix this?  It should be fairly easy
to get this right, as Emacs should already have the necessary
infrastructure in place (we deal with such problems in quite a few
places already, I think).

emacs 22: Mouse wheel problems with two monitors

Hi all.

I'm using "GNU Emacs 22.0.50.2 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2005-04-16 on LAPTOP" on XP Pro.  I am using two montors (actually, a laptop and external monitor), with my desktop extended across both.

In this configuration, scrolling with the mouse wheel works fine, as long as the emacs window is no higher/futher left than the monitor configured as primary.  In other words, with the emacs window on the primary monitor itself, everything is fine.  If I drag the emacs window to the secondary monitor, it works as long as the secondary monitor is configured to be entirely to the right (and below) the primary monitor.  If the secondary monitor is on the left of, or higher than, the primary, using the scroll wheel generates an error like:

<nil> <wheel-up> is undefined.

I am fairly sure that this works fine on emacs 21.3.1.

Has anybody else seen this, or have a workaround (other than arranging the monitors in such a way as to not provoke the problem)?

-Eli

That is an unreleased version more than one year old. Try using an up to date version if you want to track the development sources.

Re: emacs 22: Mouse wheel problems with two monitors

OK, fair enough.

Do you (or anyone else on the list) happen to know whether this particular issue has been addressed before I go find an up-to-date version?

Re: emacs 22: Mouse wheel problems with two monitors

Well, I answered my own question -- it is indeed fixed in a more recent build of CVS emacs.  Thanks for the dope-slap. :)
