Automatically checking folders

Hi, can I set a time period for wl to automatically check all/some
folders?

Thanks,

Jim

Yes.

(setq wl-biff-check-folder-list '("%inbox"))
(setq wl-biff-check-interval 120)

for example.

Thanks Richard, this works. However, is there a hook that I can use to
toggle online status before checking for new mail? I find that if I
leave wl alone for 10 minutes I need to remove dead connections or wl
will hang, as I think has been discussed on the list.

Can't make the "N" mark go away.

I'm running the latest CVS version of Wanderlust under Emacs 23.0.60.
It's Wanderlust version 2.15.6 (Almost Unreal).

I'm noticing that no matter what I do, I can't make the "N" mark go away
once it appears on a message in the Summary buffer.  That mark doesn't
go away after I read the message, nor does running
`wl-summary-incorporate' make any difference.

If I look in the elmo cache, I can see that it contains copies of all
the messages that are marked with "N", so I know that they indeed have
been cached.

Is this a bug, or is there something I need to do in order to make the
"N" mark go away?

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone have any thoughts about this problem?

It turns out that if I run `wl-summary-rescan', the marks get reset
properly, but then when new messages come in, they once again get marked
with a permanent "N" which never goes away until I run
`wl-summary-rescan' again.

I have 2 imap accounts in wl: corporate and gmail. There's absolutely
no problem with corporate imap, but only with gmail: marks reappears,
message counter changes its value forward and back. Seems, gmail imap
server is buggy and of low quality. Look here:

2 select "INBOX"
* FLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen)
* OK [PERMANENTFLAGS (\Answered \Flagged \Draft \Deleted \Seen \*)]
* OK [UIDVALIDITY 3]
* 2493 EXISTS
* 0 RECENT
* OK [UNSEEN 0]
* OK [UIDNEXT 3004]
2 OK [READ-WRITE] INBOX selected. (Success)
3 status "INBOX" (messages)
* STATUS "INBOX" (MESSAGES 2494)
3 OK Success

I suspect it has other bugs, e.g. with marks. Oh, yeah. Gmail imap
process sometimes just dies :) I have never seen such problems with
Zimbra and Courier. Never.

By the way, what IMAP software does your corporate server use?

I also have noticed that the Gmail IMAP server is sometimes flaky. I
stopped using a direct connection to it a while ago. Now, I just have
Gmail forward to a local account and read my email from there.

In my case, I'm having this "N" mark problem with my dovecot IMAP
server, which hasn't changed in a year or two. I recently upgraded wl
from CVS after having used an older version for a long time (how long? I
don't recall, but it was at least several months), and that's when this
problem started showing up. Before that, the marks worked fine.

Re: Can't make the "N" mark go away.

To Hans: This is a CC to a message I have sent to the Wanderlust mailing
list.  It's part of a thread about non-disappearing marks in Wanderlust
under Emacs 23. After some confused discussion about this problem, I
have now discovered that you posted a query about this same issue last
February. I'm now including you in this discussion in hopes that we
might be able to help one another find a solution for it.

This is the newer thread in the Wanderlust mailing list:

OfflineIMAP with Wanderlust

Hi Everybody:

I'm trying various ways to read GMail from Wanderlust.  I first tried
just using Wanderlust as an IMAP client directly, but it was too slow
processing my inbox with about 10K messages.  This is actually mainly
on the Wanderlust side because anytime a new message comes in it has
to recalculate the entire Summary view (As an aside, why can't there
be an update mode that just inserts new messages without having to
reprocess all messages?  This should be possible even the thread
mode.)

I figured I would try using OfflineIMAP to see if there are any
speedups, but I'd love to get some input from anyone who has tried it.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether I should run my own local
IMAP server or if I will get good results pointing Wanderlust at a
Maildir?

If I go the Maildir route, can someone point me in the right direction
for indexing my Maildir directory with Namazu (I'm not sure how to do
this from the collective docs)?

Essentially, does anyone have Wanderlust working well with GMail when
you have loads of messages in your Inbox?

If I didn't have to run a full update in Summary mode when I received
a new message I'd be pretty happy not to have to use OfflineIMAP.  I
tried setting up wl-biff hooks to automatically update the Summary
list, but to no avail.

I'll try to install old versions of wl and bisect the problem.
