Using Emacs/VM as a Mail Client

Advanced Use

  • Supercite: fancy citing (quoting) of message when replying

  • Mailcrypt: PGP (doesn't work for PGP 6)

  • Digests: [M-M]ark messages, [M-N]ext command uses marks, [@] create.

  • Incremental search through folder: <esc> Ctrl-s (<esc> Ctrl-S regexp)

  • Virtual folders: [V-C]reate based on many criteria ([?] to list):

    • subject, author, recipient, recent, replied, marked, text, header
    • Regular expressions can be used; extremely powerful.
    • But... can't incremental search them.
