Here's a list of variables relevant to both mailing and posting:
to-addressto the group parameters (see Group Parameters). An easier thing to do is set the
gnus-mailing-list-groupsto a regexp that matches the groups that really are mailing lists. Then, at least, followups to the mailing lists will work most of the time. Posting to these groups (a) is still a pain, though.
gnus(show Gnus version) and
emacs(show Emacs version). In addition to the Emacs version, you can add
codename(show (S)XEmacs codename) or either
config(show system configuration) or
type(show system type). If you set it to a string, be sure to use a valid format, see RFC 2616.
You may want to do spell-checking on messages that you send out. Or, if
you don't want to spell-check by hand, you could add automatic
spell-checking via the
(add-hook 'message-send-hook 'ispell-message)
If you want to change the
ispell dictionary based on what group
you're in, you could say something like the following:
(add-hook 'gnus-select-group-hook (lambda () (cond ((string-match "^de\\." (gnus-group-real-name gnus-newsgroup-name)) (ispell-change-dictionary "deutsch")) (t (ispell-change-dictionary "english")))))
Modify to suit your needs.
gnus-message-highlight-citation is t, different levels of
citations are highlighted like in Gnus article buffers also in message
