t. When first enabled, the agent will use
gnus-agent-auto-agentize-methodsto automatically mark some back ends as agentized. You may change which back ends are agentized using the agent commands in the server buffer.
To enter the server buffer, use the ^
gnus-group-enter-server-mode) command in the group buffer.
gnus-level-subscribed, which means that only subscribed group will be considered by the Agent by default.
nil, which means to use the Agent as a cache.
nil, the Agent will never automatically switch offline servers into online status. If it is
ask, the default, the Agent will ask if you wish to switch offline servers into online status when you re-connect. If it has any other value, all offline servers will be automatically switched into online status.
nil, mark articles as unread after downloading. This is usually a safe thing to do as the newly downloaded article has obviously not been read. The default is
nil, the Agent will never automatically synchronize flags. If it is
ask, which is the default, the Agent will check if you made any changes and if so ask if you wish to synchronize these when you re-connect. If it has any other value, all flags will be synchronized automatically.
nil, the agent will let the agent predicate decide whether articles need to be downloaded or not, for all articles. When
nil, the default, the agent will only let the predicate decide whether unread articles are downloaded or not. If you enable this, you may also want to look into the agent expiry settings (see Category Variables), so that the agent doesn't download articles which the agent will later expire, over and over again.
gnus-agent-max-fetch-sizeprovides a size limit to control how often the cycling occurs. A large value improves performance. A small value minimizes the time lost should the connection be lost while fetching (You may need to run
gnus-agent-regenerate-groupto update the group's state. However, all articles parsed prior to losing the connection will be available while unplugged). The default is 10M so it is unusual to see any cycling.
nil, makes Gnus ask the user whether to deny the server or whether to unplug the agent. If the Agent is disabled, Gnus always simply deny the server. Other choices for this variable include
offlinethe latter is only valid if the Agent is used.
The valid values are
nil (maneuver to any article),
undownloaded (maneuvering while unplugged ignores articles that
have not been fetched),
always-undownloaded (maneuvering always
ignores articles that have not been fetched),
(maneuvering ignores articles whose headers have not been fetched).
always, Gnus will always queue mail rather than sending it straight away. When
t, Gnus will queue mail when unplugged only. When
nil, never queue mail. The default is
nilGnus will prompt you to confirm that you really wish to proceed if you hit J S while unplugged. The default is
