Previous: , Up: The Gnus Diary Library   [Contents][Index] Diary Group Parameters

When you create a new diary group, or visit one, gnus-diary automatically checks your group parameters and if needed, sets the summary line format to the diary-specific value, installs the diary-specific sorting functions, and also adds the different X-Diary-* headers to the group’s posting-style. It is then easier to send a diary message, because if you use C-u a or C-u m on a diary group to prepare a message, these headers will be inserted automatically (although not filled with proper values yet).

nndiary is a real mail back end. You really send real diary messages for real. This means for instance that you can give appointments to anybody (provided they use Gnus and nndiary) by sending the diary message to them as well.
