1. What is the right way to set the variable user-mail-address in
emacs? Right now I have
and this produces an extra, unwanted "<" before "Michael" in the
"from" field of a message. How can I get rid of it?
2. (I asked this recently, perhaps not clearly enough:)
I have vm set up to fetch messages from my ISP, which it does,
and from the local mail spool (/var/spool/mail/michael on my machine),
which it does not. I have set 'vm-spool-files in my .vm file as:
(setq vm-spool-files '("/var/spool/mail/michael"
yet vm-get-new-mail never gets mail from the local spool file when
there is mail present.
What's wrong with this setup?
Thanks for any pointers (and is there a vm list?)
