3.8 Sending Variables


A function called to save outgoing articles. This function will be called with the name of the file to store the article in. The default function is message-output which saves in Unix mailbox format.


When sending combined messages, this string is inserted at the start of the mailed copy. If the string contains the format spec ‘%s’, the newsgroups the article has been posted to will be inserted there. If this variable is nil, no such courtesy message will be added. The default value is ‘"The following message is a courtesy copy of an article\\nthat has been posted to %s as well.\\n\\n"’.


If nil, attach files as normal parts in FCC copies; if it is non-nil, attach local files as external parts.


If non-nil wait for and display errors when sending a message; if nil let the mailer mail back a message to report errors.


When non-nil, Gnus will ask for confirmation when sending a message.


An alist describing the rules for generating the X-Message-SMTP-Method header to insert before sending out a new message, if the message doesn’t yet have such a header. Each element of the alist should be of the form (cond . method). If cond is a string, it will be compared with the From header, and if they compare equal, the corresponding method will be inserted as a string into the message headers as the SMTP Method. If cond is a function, it will be called in the message buffer without any arguments, and the corresponding method will be inserted into the message headers as the SMTP Method if the function returns a non-nil value; if method is nil, the value returned by the function cond is used instead.
