Google is life saver

[ #3679 ]
I've met one problem several time before but I've been able to workaround it in different ways. The problem is that I want mail agent I use (i.e Gnus) to use different identities when I talk via email with different people. Today I faced this problem again. This time I decided to find real solution.

First try was using gnus variable gnus-posting-styles which description I have found in Gnus manual. I played a bit with it but I could not get it switch identity according mail headers. So I've tried to find example of it's usage with google. Instead of example I found this elisp file: gnus-pers.el. It allows to define any number of identities and switch them any time. Of course identity can be automatically chosen according mail headers. Cool!

But google helped me one more time. Guy who wrote that elisp file uses xemacs so his code uses some xemacs specific functions (like replace-in-string). But thanks to google I've found another elisp file which implements missing functions for GNU emacs (which I use): functions.el.

  • True, but like anybody else, they're susceptible to certain forms of abuse []. A more cynical person might even infer that some sort of payment/pressure was applied, but I wouldn't go that far. Scientology's got enough money to buy its way in, instead of buying someone inside.

    You are what you think.
