VM

The mail command "m" is broken in the new "b" release

Asked by David Raymond on 2012-01-14

I installed the new (end of december vm release) and it is broken for me: trying to send
mail after entering vm using the "m" command fails with a nasty message. I immediately
backed out to the "a" release, so I can't give you more detail than that at the moment.

Am I doing something stupid and obvious?

Unfortunately, the function `vm-select-recipient-from-sender' is missing an
autoload. If you load vm-reply

  M-x load-library <RET> vm-reply <RET>

you can get around the problem. Or you can just do a dummy 'reply' and
get rid of the reply buffer, and then it will work fine.

It will be fixed in the final release.

Cheers,

That did it! I put the following in my .emacs file so I don't
have to do a manual load-library every time I start emacs:

(load "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/vm/vm-reply")

Thanks,

Dave

Yes, that should work fine. As I said, this will be fixed in the final release.
