The registry lets you set custom flags and keywords per message. You
can use the Gnus->Registry Marks menu or the M M x keyboard
x is the first letter of the mark's name.
The custom marks that the registry can use. You can modify the default list, if you like. If you do, you'll have to exit Emacs before they take effect (you can also unload the registry and reload it or evaluate the specific macros you'll need, but you probably don't want to bother). Use the Customize interface to modify the list.
By default this list has the
Latermarks. They all have keyboard shortcuts like M M i for Important, using the first letter.
Call this function to mark an article with a custom registry mark. It will offer the available marks for completion.
You can use
defalias to install a summary line formatting
function that will show the registry marks. There are two flavors of
this function, either showing the marks as single characters, using
:char property, or showing the marks as full strings.
;; show the marks as single characters (see the :char property in ;; `gnus-registry-marks'): ;; (defalias 'gnus-user-format-function-M 'gnus-registry-article-marks-to-chars) ;; show the marks by name (see `gnus-registry-marks'): ;; (defalias 'gnus-user-format-function-M 'gnus-registry-article-marks-to-names)
