Description of problem:
I cannot get elm to save messages that it has sent to the sent folder with
the 'out of the box' rpm either 2.5 pl 3 or 2.5 pl6. this could be a
documentation bug. I can explicitly move messages to the sent folder
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.send an email
see that it's empty!
Actual Results: there's nothing in the folder =sent
Expected Results: message that was sent should be in the folder.
this is causing me some grief as I do need to track what email I've sent,
and I use the command line version of elm extensively.
I don't think that this is constrained to rh7.1
Can you the version from http://people.redhat.com/teg/elm/, and see if it helps?
this makes no difference. If it helps, here's my options for the one you
pointed me at:
-- ELM Options Editor --
D)isplay mail using : builtin+
E)ditor (primary) : /usr/bin/emacs
F)older directory : /home/tim/Mail
S)orting criteria : Reverse-Sent
O)utbound mail saved : =sent
P)rint mail using : /usr/bin/lp
V)isual Editor (~v) : /usr/bin/emacs
A)rrow cursor : OFF
M)enu display : ON
U)ser level : Beginning User
N)ames only : ON
I'm going to need to change that - I don't spk emacs :-)
fixed this now. there was no ~/.elm/elmrc.
I had tried rpm -e elm followed by rpm -i elm-2.5.5*
shouldn't the installation either put in a relevant elmrc, or tell the
installer to do so?
Installations of packages shouldn't touch personal home directories. Closing,
it's a local configuration issue.
