Next: , Previous: Diary Articles Sorting, Up: The Gnus Diary Library Diary Headers Generation

gnus-diary provides a function called gnus-diary-check-message to help you handle the X-Diary-* headers. This function ensures that the current message contains all the required diary headers, and prompts you for values or corrections if needed.

This function is hooked into the nndiary back end, so that moving or copying an article to a diary group will trigger it automatically. It is also bound to C-c C-f d in message-mode and article-edit-mode in order to ease the process of converting a usual mail to a diary one.

This function takes a prefix argument which will force prompting of all diary headers, regardless of their presence or validity. That way, you can very easily reschedule an already valid diary message, for instance.
