prop: build a standarized .emacs file for newbies


Desperately need help in writing a simple standardized
.emacs file for myself, so i can set up my email and
nntp server. 

)中文环境b)email c)news 【如果能加上一些其它的tips

1. edit Chinese text file (already done that but still
have some nuisance that i can't figure out what cause
2. use gnus or rmail to read and reply email.
3. use gnus to read news.

Can people here share your .emacs file and explain a
little bit how can i adjust it according to my need?

My current .emacs file contains (with the help of
friends in Debian GNU/Linux Chinese-GB mailing list,
namely, you guyz! GB group? then why the hell i am
using English! :)

(set-terminal-coding-system 'chinese-iso-8bit)
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'chinese-iso-8bit)
(setq locale-coding-system 'chinese-iso-8bit)
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'chinese-iso-8bit)
(set-selection-coding-system 'chinese-iso-8bit)

(setq gnus-group-name-charset-group-alist '((".*" . gb2312)))

to be more specific on gnus. 

Currently i use Agent for news. It's good. Single Key
Stroke navigation, automatically strip and save
attachment to a designated folder. 

The best of it is I can run two separate agent
sessions (programs?) to access the same newsserver,
thus share the traffic between the two. For example,
for news.yaako.com, Agent A subscribed to
alt.linux.advocacy (high traffic),alt.tv.familyguy,
etc. Agent B subscribed to soc.culture.china,
soc.culture.taiwan, talk.atheism, etc. Can I do that
in emacs. I bet i can. :) Cos it's emacs, THE Editor.

Besides, i need a slave NNTP server.

Tigger wrote the email in ntemacs at office during
work time! :) Once I got my rmail or gnus set up
correctly, i will post message with emacs. 

Happy hacking you guys. Tigger keeps lurking and
posing stupid questions! :p (我emacs存盘时有时还是
default coding, iso-××××-jp 
的文章不会这样,如果用其它text editor写然户emacs打开编
p.s, i understand rmail can't handle many mine type
attachment. well, too early for me to go for MH, or is
