You're welcome.  

And for the record I had this in my init file:

  (customize-set-variable 'mozmail-default-mua 'mhe)

  (require 'mozmail)

and REVERSING the order of those two lines 

makes it work fine out of the box, as probably

the customize doesn't work before the defcustom

having been read :-)

It only handles simple mailto url. You can try all mailto urls in this

Reading HTML messages in mh-e 8.0.3 and emacs 21?

All,

(This is a second try -- my first attempt went to Bill Wohler only,
sorry about that.)

I'm writing to ask if someone would please find a minute to help me with
convincing MH-E version 8.0.3 to show HTML.  Lately I'm corresponding
frequently with someone who only sends HTML, and I'm would like to read
the messages!

I found http://mh-e.sourceforge.net/manual/html/HTML.html which tells me
that if I set the symbol mm-text-html-renderer to the value
"w3m-standalone" it will render HTML in line.  I'm using this line in my
.emacs for Emacs version 21.2:

(setq   mm-text-html-renderer           "w3m-standalone")

But when I attempt to view a HTML message in MH-E, I get this error:

    Could not display body: Cannot open load file: w3

I get the same exact result if I try setting that variable to the value
"w3m" which apparently was the high vote getter, as well as "links".  I
have not attempted to download or install either one yet -- I can set
the option to "cat" with identical results, and I know I have a "cat"
program on the machine!

Does anything not look right?  I've pared my .emacs file down to the
minimum (see below) since my mh-e customizations have bitten me before.
   Some dependency on emacs 22?  Perhaps w3m-standalone comes with some

Re: Reading HTML messages in mh-e 8.0.3 and emacs 21?


I think you need a newer version of Gnus.

I had a problem that was similar to yours.  It was long enough in
the past that I've forgotten the exact details, but I seem to
recall going through the same steps and getting the same error.
I spent a lot of time trying to get a new version of "w3",
but in the end I found that upgrading Gnus solved it all.

I'm using (from M-x mh-version)

MH-E 7.82

MH-E compilation details:
 Byte compiled:		yes
 Gnus (compile-time):	Gnus v5.9.0
 Gnus (run-time):	Gnus v5.10.6

GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2005-05-31 on kenmore.mit.edu

Sincerely,
 Jacob Morzinski                                jmorzins <at> mit.edu

You misread the manual--you need at least version 5.10 of Gnus. Get a
fresher drop of Gnus and I'll bet your life will be much improved.

Regexp as a subject limit ?

Hi,

I am pretty new at MH and MH-E so sorry if this question is a
FAQ. I have read all I could to try to find an answer.

So, is there a way to limit the "summary view" according to a
regexp as rmail offers it ?

Regards,

Xavier

MH-E and SPAMPROBE

Hello again,

I can't find a way to tell MH-E that my spamprobe database is in
~/var/db/spam. Do you know if it is doable ?

Thank you very much.

You can search for a subject, and then narrow the buffer to the search:

F s RET           to start a search

(Then type your regexp onto the "subject" line, like:)
Subject: re.*su.*li

C-c C-c           to begin the search

S n search RET    to narrow the buffer to just the "search" sequence.

S w               to widen, when done

Ok but then I need to install something like mairix or swish,
don't I ?

No. The following search engines are supported:

        swish++
        swish-e
        mairix
        namazu
        pick
        grep

All of MH, nmh, and GNU Mailutils which are supported by MH-E provide a
'pick' command. I am not aware of any platforms that support MH without
supporting 'grep'.

	Enjoy!
