I am using version 22.2.

Actually this variable is documented, but changing its value brings no

BTW: Why is msmtp installed in /usr/sbin? Is this the cygwin-way?

I think that I used emacs-23 and some newer gnus. It has been an
gentoo-setup and thus rather uncommon anyway.

Thats another thing: msmtp doesn't log neither. It does when invoked
on the command-line, but it doesn't when I am in gnus. Thats another
reason why I'd like to have the whole command gnus invokes, just to
check that there is really a /usr/bin/msmtp at the beginning.
