standard input <FileBinaryCoincidesWithPattern>

Hi,

I'm using mutt with Little Brother's Database (lbdb). In some time, when I use
part of a address and press CTRL+T, to complete the address, I got:

entrada padrão <Arquivobináriocoincidecomopadrão>

In a free translate, means:

standard input <FileBinaryCoincidesWithPattern>

This input isn't in my /home/user/.lbdb/m_inmail.list

How I could solve this?

why did no one pick up maintainership of procmail?

procmail seems so useful and I do not know of a good replacement for
some of its resources. I use the formail tool quite often.

I find it strange that such a useful tool never gained a maintainer.
Here is a useful message:
http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-ports&m=141634350915839&w=2
but to me it explains why the author had to leave, not why no one picked it up.

Is procmail fundamentally flawed or it is just that no one has found
the time and love to commit to maintaining it again?

Of course I do not judge. I have not done anything to help (except
this complaint!). I am just curious.

Please let me know if such an email is off-topic (I suppose this does
not have direct relevance to mutt) and I will refrain from similar
questions in the future.

Kind regards,

xu

Can one do something to an E-Mail without even opening/seeing it in mutt?

As per the subject is it possible for mutt to do something to an
E-Mail in its inbox without the user seeing/doing anything at all?

E.g. is there some sort of hook that can, for example, reply to or
delete an E-Mail from a specific address without any user interaction?

From: oddity

This is only happening on one message,
but I can't figure out why.

I received an email sent to a group of about 10
family and friends.  Their addresses are all in
the "To:" list, no "Cc:" list.  When I reply to
the message, with either "g" to reply to the group
or "r" to reply to just the sender, the From: line
of the message is set to someone other than me.
The replyer set to one of the other addresses in
the list (happens to be the 3rd one, I'm 6th).

I have no "hooks" in my .muttrc that involve
the email address selected as the From address.

Any guesses as to what could cause this behavior?

mutt version 1.6.0 from Fedora 22 repo.

I've never set it before, the mailcap I'm using is in the default
location ~/.mailcap.  I tried adding a 'set mailcap_path' to my muttrc
but it made no difference.

No, I still have that problem as well.

Yes and no!  :-)

When viewed in the mutt pager it's rubbish, when I reply it all shows
perfectly in my editor.

Yes, it's a UTF-8/graphics issue, the mutt pager isn't displaying
characters correctly whereas everything else on my system is.

Another 1.5.24 to 1.6.1 migration question

I have another question regarding 1.6.1 differences from 1.5.24.  In
my index replies to message don't show their subject line correctly,
for example:-

        18 r + 10-May-16 Jane Chevous    (  83) Reshapers
        19   + 10-May-16 Jane Chevous    ( 179) M-b~T~TM-b~T~ <at> >

That M-b~T~TM-b~T~ <at> > should be the ASCII graphics 'tree' to the next
message in the thread.

I guess this is some sort of build configuration issue but I'd be
pleased for any pointers.

1.6.1 doesn't seem to use mailcap in the same way as 1.5.23 did - how to fix?

I have just locally built mutt 1.6.1 on my xubuntu 16.04 system to use
instead of the 1.5.24 that xubuntu provides (because of the reverse
video on exit bug I reported).

It works OK but doesn't seem to use my .mailcap entries in the same
was as 1.5.24 did.  My .mailcap is:-

    text/html; /home/chris/bin/muttfox %s
    text/html; lynx -dump %s; copiousoutput; nametemplate=%s.html
    application/pdf;  /usr/bin/evince %s
    image/jpeg; ristretto %s %i ; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

Version 1.6.1 doesn't call /home/chris/bin/muttfox (a script which
handles getting the HTML mail to firefox), version 1.5.24 did.  So
what do I need to change to get 1.6.1 to work the way that 1.5.24 used
to?  With 1.5.24 the first line of .mailcap was used when you hit 'v'
in mutt.

stop macro if <shell-escape> exits non-zero?

Hi,

Suppose I have something like:

macro compose Q
"<shell-escape>script1<enter><edit-fcc><kill-line><enter><send-message><enter>"

If script1 exits with non-zero error, can I have mutt not continue the
macro? If not, any alternative to accomplish same goal?

Kind regards,

Xu

Very annoying quirk in mutt 1.5.24 on xubuntu 16.04

I have just upgraded my system to xubuntu 16.04 (from 15.10).  It all
went very smoothly.

However the new (presumably) mutt which is 1.5.24 has a very annoying
quirk.  It switches the terminal to reverse video when it exits.

It appears to be the 'Mailbox is unchanged' (or whatever else is
output when I leave) that does the change.

I have 'light on dark' terminal windows and mutt seems to want it to
be the other way round.

integrated gpg

According to the help file "p" invokes encryption options. When I try it
I get nothing. I have

set pgp_verify_sig=yes         
set pgp_use_gpg_agent = yes
set pgp_auto_decode = yes

in my ~/.muttrc file. Of them, only verify_sig functions.

I used to invoke the gpg menu at the bottom of the
window with one key stroke, not "p"(?), but my memory, among other things, 
is failing due to age, and I can't recall it. At the time I had nothing
more referring to gpg in my ~/.muttrc file.

I'm running  mutt 1.5.23-3 and gpg 1.4.18-7 in debian 8.4 

Any pointers appreciated.
