Literally "added"? You may have only one custom-set-variables section.

I'm afraid it works for me with a .emacs consisting of just:

(setq rmail-primary-inbox-list '("po:USERNAME"))
(setenv "MAILHOST" "MAIL.SERVER")
(custom-set-variables
 '(rmail-remote-password-required t)
 '(rmail-remote-password "PASSWORD"))

BTW, this is all rather obsolete. The modern method would be:

(setq rmail-primary-inbox-list
   '("pop://USERNAME:address@hidden"))

But either method works fine for me.


Why do you think rmail-mode-hook has anything to do with this?
