That's strange!

Well, it seems a bit backward because I use


to *add* stuff, not to remove it. I have no clue as how
to solve it, anymore than how I do it. This is how I
manage mails, mailing lists, and Usenet:

;; I'm on the w3m mailing list. Based on the subject,
;; the below code will filter ordinary mails from those
;; from the w3m list.

(setq nnmail-split-methods
      '(("mail.w3m" "^Subject:.*emacs-w3m.*")
        ("mail.misc" "") ))

;; The below is about *sending* - it sets the signature
;; (same for everything), but when answering a *mail*,
;; it adds the Newsgroup: header if I were to change my
;; mind and make it a Usenet post instead (or "as
;; well"), *or* as is a much more common case, if I
;; send a Usenet post and when I write it I think,
;; "Man, this would be right up X's alley", but he is
;; not on Usenet, so then I need inserted a To: header
;; to make it a mail as well.
;; While we are on this subject - perhaps that is a bad
;; idea in terms of spamming? Should I program it to,
;; when I send to Usenet, *first* send is as a mail,
;; remove the To: header, and then send it to Usenet
;; (i.e., without the header)?  But I did this a lot
;; and no one ever complained.

(setq gnus-posting-styles
      (let ((sig "Emanuel Berg, programmer-for-rent. CV, projects, etc at 
uXu\nunderground experts united:";))
           (Newsgroups "")
           (signature ,sig)
           (To "")
           (Mail-Copies-To "never")
           (signature ,sig) ))))

;;; more send mail

(require 'smtpmail)
(setq smtpmail-smtp-server "")
(setq smtpmail-local-domain "")
(setq send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)
(setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)
(setq user-full-name "Emanuel Berg")

;;; no we get to *read* mails...

(let ((username "embe8573"))
  (setq user-mail-address
        (format "%s@%s" username smtpmail-local-domain) )
  (setq mail-sources `((pop :pop      ""
                            :user     ,username
                            :password ,*mail-password*) )))
(require 'nnmbox)
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nnml ""))
      mail-user-agent 'gnus-user-agent
      read-mail-command 'gnus)

;; this is to *save* sent mail/posts (as a Gnus group)

(setq gnus-message-archive-group '("archived-news-and-mail") )

;; OK, done with mails: Usenet

(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp ""))
