Hi again,

sorry for my late reply, work has kept me busy :-)

And in case you're checking the header of this message: yes, I'm using
GMail to post this message. The reason is not that GMail isn't working
with VM now (thanks to your help), but that I haven't set up multiple
SMTP accounts with automatic switching between them.

Since my primary mail is my company mail, GMail just has to take a
back seat right now. But there's perhaps some wizardry to the Emacs
SMTP settings I haven't looked into? Feel free to point me in the
right direction.
seems like a place to start. Has anyone gotten this to work (with VM)
without any user interaction? I.e. if I reply to a message in
imap/gmail:inbox, it uses the GMail setup and if I'm replying to a
message in imap/someothermail:inbox, it uses someothermail's SMTP

Amazing. Good catch, though!

Great, I had to re-start Emacs whenever I mistyped my password :-)

I'll send them a pedagogical email :-)
