Re: CR's in Woody Emacs/Gnus articles
Hello and thanks for the replies.
I don't know how long it would have taken me to even think of
fetchmail and exim. I think the problem was as Daniel Barlow
described, exim was not listening so fetchmail was doing something
else. I thought fetchmail would fail when it couldn't find an smtp
port, but I think it was simply putting the mail in a spool file.
Once I restarted exim and fetchmail, those ^M's disappeared.
The stripcr option for fetchmail also removed them, but I thought it
would be better to fix the source of the problem, rather than use this
option. In addition to the ^M's, I saw a lot of MIME content and
boundary markers. I don't think mail coming in with attachments was
being handled correctly either.
Finally, for solutions within Gnus, the gnus-treat-strip-cr worked for
the message bodies, but not for the headers. My elisp programming is
pretty weak. If I had:
(setq gnus-treat-strip-cr t)
the ^M's were removed from the message body. If I had:
(setq gnus-treat-strip-cr head)
the ^M's were removed from the headers, but not the body. I need to
get back to the elisp-intro.
Have a good evening.
