Wanderlust is installable via MELPA

Hi all,

If you have been using my package archive
( to install Wanderlust, you can now use
MELPA instead:

I will not be providing updates via my package repo any more.

If you have not been using my package archive, and you use GNU
emacs>=23, I highly advise installing via MELPA. It is easier, in my
experience, than installing via el-get or by hand. It does not require
git, make, or anything but emacs to be installed.

The only issue is that MELPA is a bleeding edge package repository, so
you always get the absolute latest version.

best, Erik

best practices for wanderlust+gmail

There are terrific guides to setting up Wanderlust with Gmail. What
I'm missing, though, is best practices for how to *use* Gmail with
Wanderlust given its differences from traditional IMAP. Any thoughts
from those who have been using it for a while would be appreciated.

- Gmail uses labels not folders. How does this impact WL usage? Is it
  typical to use 'O' to set a label, possibly several labels, and then
  archive the message?

- It seems popular to "archive" everything in Gmail (possibly after
  it's labeled). Do wl/Gmail users have a particular setup so that 'o'
  always goes to the archive, or another keystroke?

- Searching (IMAP search) in one giant archive seems like a headache.
  Any setup that makes WL searching more tractable, or do users just
  turn to Gmail's (excellent) online search through their mail?

resetting underlying IMAP connection

Occasionally IMAP hangs and I have to CTRL-G and restart the
operation. Things usually restart OK then. This typically happens
after resumming from a laptop suspend, restarting a VPN connection,

Occasionally, doing the above doesn't work. I.e., restarting the
operation results in the same hanging. Exiting and restarting WL takes
care of the problem.

Is there a direct way to reset/close/restart the underlying IMAP
connection without exiting WL?

Default interactive folder search (Re: Modify wl-summary-pick to reduce IMAP traffic)

Please see

This change reduces IMAP traffic.  But it increases other protocols

So, I implemented alternate default for interactive folder search.

If elmo-folder-search is called with setting NUMBERS argument to t,
IMAP folder uses server-side search (same as the current default for
non-interactive search), and other folders search from msgdb
containing messages (same as the current default for interactive
search).  Please see attached patch.

IMAP folder doesn't sync with deleted messages

When IMAP server's messages were deleted by other client, Wanderlust
doesn't sync with deleted messages until more new messages are added.

elmo-folder-list-messages-plugged method of elmo-imap4-folder seems
not to assume that messages can be deleted by other client.  I'm not
sure that the problem can be resolved without full sync.

WL and org-store-link

Hi all,

This could be more of an org-mode question, but it is relevant here too.

Earlier today, I upgraded to GNU Emacs 24.4.1 (on Debian testing).  After
the update, org-store-link stopped working in WL summary buffers with the
message: "No method for storing a link from this buffer"

You can use org-store-link to create a link to a message for insertion in an
org-mode buffer (e.g., todo list).

Before the update, org-store-link worked without problems with WL.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

macosx / 22.3 carbon

i am running macosx 10.10, 22.3 carbon emacs (because i can not stand
the gadgeted aqua etc), and an old pieced together semi/elmo/wanderlust.

if i wanted to jump to erik's latest and greatest, is there a simple
recipe, or is the culture still 19 git repositories, four makes, a
tethered goat, and oh, it only works for linux and windows?

Pending operations won't execute

Hi all,

I have been an avid user of wanderlust for a couple of years now, after
migrating across from mew, but recently experiencing a curious problem that I
can't seem to fix. I have one particular directory which has 2 pending
operations in it, but whenever I try to go to the folder, smtp tries to flush
the actions and fails, returning the following argument:

Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

Similarly, when I try toggling the plug status, I get a message to say that
there are 2 operations pending and a dialogue to ask if I want to execute them,
but then a message saying that 0/2 operations were performed
successfully. Because I can't navigate into the affected folder, I have no way
of checking what the operations are from within emacs, and no relevant
messages are displayed in the *Messages* buffer. Also, I can't view other
messages in the affected folder (the folder view won't scroll, and I can't
display any of the messages for that folder). Any suggestions as to how to
fix/diagnose the problem?

Many thanks,
