At work, I'm trying to use vm to read and send mail.
I can read mail, and send it. However, when the message
is sent, there is no Subject: line. There is only a Date:
and a To: line. The Subject: line is in the body of the
message, and the Subject: prefix is replaced by ~s.
What's going wrong? It is nothing to do with vm, vm
has no variables that deal with the order or format
of the headers that I could see.
The only appropriate variable in all of emacs (see the
way I figured this out, below[*]) was mail-default-headers,
and that was nil when the above was happening. But
setting mail-default-headers to contain To: From: and
Subject (each with a \n on the end) resulted in those
lines appearing in the body of the message, and some
of them duplicated (such as Subject). The first subject
line prefix was still replaced with ~s.
[*] C-h v space, to get a list of all the variables
defined in this session of emacs, then search through it
for all vars with "mail" in them, or prefixed with "vm-".
Any help on this would be appreciated.
By the way, calling /bin/mail like this resulted in a normal
mail -s "a subject line" firstname.lastname@example.org return return
So there is something in emacs doing something funny with
the subject and other headers. But how to fix it?
Oops I suppose I have to tell you the version of vm and
emacs that I'm using - but now I'm at home. Well, I was using
gnu emacs, and a fairly recent version of vm (I downloaded vm
in December). If necessary, I can post this info later.
