Gnus provides a few different methods for storing the mail and news you
send. The default method is to use the archive virtual server to
store the messages. If you want to disable this completely, the
gnus-message-archive-group variable should be
default is "sent.%Y-%m", which gives you one archive group per month.
For archiving interesting messages in a group you read, see the
B c (
gnus-summary-copy-article) command (see section Mail Group Commands).
gnus-message-archive-method says what virtual server Gnus is to
use to store sent messages. The default is
"archive", and when
actually being used it is expanded into:
(nnfolder "archive" (nnfolder-directory "~/Mail/archive") (nnfolder-active-file "~/Mail/archive/active") (nnfolder-get-new-mail nil) (nnfolder-inhibit-expiry t))
Note: a server like this is saved in the ‘~/.newsrc.eld’ file first so that it may be used as a real method of the server which is named
"archive"(that is, for the case where
gnus-message-archive-methodis set to
"archive") ever since. If it once has been saved, it will never be updated by default even if you change the value of
gnus-message-archive-methodafterward. Therefore, the server
"archive"doesn’t necessarily mean the
nnfolderserver like this at all times. If you want the saved method to reflect always the value of
gnus-message-archive-method, set the
gnus-update-message-archive-methodvariable to a non-
nilvalue. The default value of this variable is
You can, however, use any mail select method (
nnfolder is a quite likable select method
for doing this sort of thing, though. If you don’t like the default
directory chosen, you could say something like:
(setq gnus-message-archive-method '(nnfolder "archive" (nnfolder-inhibit-expiry t) (nnfolder-active-file "~/News/sent-mail/active") (nnfolder-directory "~/News/sent-mail/")))
Gnus will insert
Gcc headers in all outgoing messages that point
to one or more group(s) on that server. Which group to use is
determined by the
This variable can be used to do the following:
Messages will be saved in that group.
Note that you can include a select method in the group name, then the
message will not be stored in the select method given by
gnus-message-archive-method, but in the select method specified
by the group name, instead. Suppose
has the default value shown above. Then setting
"foo" means that outgoing
messages are stored in ‘nnfolder+archive:foo’, but if you use the
"nnml:foo", then outgoing messages will be stored in
Messages will be saved in all those groups.
When a key “matches”, the result is used.
No message archiving will take place.
Just saving to a single group called ‘MisK’:
(setq gnus-message-archive-group "MisK")
Saving to two groups, ‘MisK’ and ‘safe’:
(setq gnus-message-archive-group '("MisK" "safe"))
Save to different groups based on what group you are in:
(setq gnus-message-archive-group '(("^alt" "sent-to-alt") ("mail" "sent-to-mail") (".*" "sent-to-misc")))
More complex stuff:
(setq gnus-message-archive-group '((if (message-news-p) "misc-news" "misc-mail")))
How about storing all news messages in one file, but storing all mail messages in one file per month:
(setq gnus-message-archive-group '((if (message-news-p) "misc-news" (concat "mail." (format-time-string "%Y-%m")))))
Now, when you send a message off, it will be stored in the appropriate
group. (If you want to disable storing for just one particular message,
you can just remove the
Gcc header that has been inserted.) The
archive group will appear in the group buffer the next time you start
Gnus, or the next time you press F in the group buffer. You can
enter it and read the articles in it just like you’d read any other
group. If the group gets really big and annoying, you can simply rename
if (using G r in the group buffer) to something
nice—‘misc-mail-september-1995’, or whatever. New messages will
continue to be stored in the old (now empty) group.
nil, automatically mark
Gcc articles as read.
nil, attach files as normal parts in Gcc copies; if a regexp
and matches the Gcc group name, attach files as external parts; if it is
all, attach local files as external parts; if it is other
nil, the behavior is the same as
all, but it may be
changed in the future.

except for the current group.
These hooks are run before/after encoding the message body of the Gcc copy of a sent message. The current buffer (when the hook is run) contains the message including the message header. Changes made to the message will only affect the Gcc copy, but not the original message. You can use these hooks to edit the copy (and influence subsequent transformations), e.g., remove MML secure tags (see section Signing and encrypting).
