Hi Eli, yes you are right, using 'emacs -Q' solves the problem (sorry about not trying this first), so now i'll track down what's wrong with my .emacs file to break 'set-rmail-inbox-list'.


thanks,

I cannot reproduce this, neither in the 26.0.91 pretest nor with the
more recent RC1.

Does this happen in "emacs -Q"?  If not, perhaps your recipe lacks a
few steps that your customizations add to the puzzle?

That's by design.  We could perhaps allow this also in the Summary
buffer, but let's first fix the original problem, okay?
