Re: Splitting the Emacspeak List?

Hi Robert,
This is precisely the sort of thing I was looking for. I am using Nnimap, because my email server runs IMAP and I do sometimes use multiple clients to read it. The default Gnus mail behavior of deleting everything once fetched doesn't really appeal to me.
   Thanks, though.  I'm sure I'll be able to learn from this stuff.
All the best,

Hello Zachary,

In using Gnus to read and send the majority of my email lately,
I've had an interest in some of its nicer features for mail reading,
specifically mail splitting. I was wondering how I might go about
splitting the Emacspeak list into its own 'group', so I could be sure
I would have those mails separately?

Here is what I use:

(setq nnmail-split-methods
("mail.emacspeak" "^X-Mailing-List: <emacspeak")
       ("mail.other" ""))

I removed the other splitting I do, but this should be valid code if
this is the only splitting you do.

The splitting is regular expression based, matched against the
email header. I've tried a couple examples which didn't work, but I
don't claim to be an expert in regular expressions.

I've tried:

^Sender: emacspeak@cs.vassar.edu

As well as:

^Resent-from: emacspeak@cs.vassar.edu

Is this exactly what the header looks like?  This will match a header
line that looks like this:

Sender: emacspeak@cs.vassar.edu
Resent-from: emacspeak@cs.vassar.edu

Am I supposed to backslash escape something in the headings? The
part I wondered about was the dash. Is that a metacharacter in this

Not sure off the top of my head.  You might want to have a look at that
section of the lisp reference info manual.

If anybody could provide me an expression I might be able to use,
I'd appreciate it. On some other lists I know I can split based on
subject line, but not so here.

I decided to send my nnmail-split-methods.  It is not complicated by any
means but it should provide some examples.

(setq nnmail-split-methods
     '(("mail.jerianne" "^From:.*jerianne")
("mail.jerianne" "^From:.*my30thbirthday")
("mail.jerianne" "^From:.*whysoblue")
("mail.jerianne" "^From:.*jthompson")
       ("mail.knights" "^Subject:.*Knights")
       ("mail.debian-laptop" "^X-Mailing-List:.*debian-laptop")
("mail.tips" "^From:.*UGU")
("mail.notes" "^To:.*Notes")
("mail.gmail" "^To:.*robdcraw")
("mail.homeroast-list" "^To:.*homeroast")
("mail.homeroast-list" "^Cc:.*homeroast")
("mail.thinkpad-list" "^To:.*thinkpad")
("mail.powertop-list" "^To:.*power@bughost.org")
("mail.powertop-list" "^Cc:.*power@bughost.org")
("mail.thinkpad-list" "^Cc:.*thinkpad")
("mail.emacspeak" "^X-Mailing-List: <emacspeak")
("mail.gmail" "^Subject:.*orgmode")
       ("mail.other" "")))
