Here are some VM customization variables that don't really fit into
the other chapters.
A value of t causes VM to always ask for confirmation before ending
a VM visit of a folder. A nil value means VM will ask only when
messages will be lost unwittingly by quitting, i.e. not removed by
intentional delete and expunge. A value that is not nil and not t
causes VM to ask only when there are unsaved changes to message
attributes or message will be lost.
A non-`nil' value means to read and write BSD Mail(1) style Status:
headers. This makes sense if you plan to use VM to read mail
archives created by Mail.
A non-`nil' value means to use a crufty regular expression that
does surprisingly well at beautifying UUCP addresses that are
substituted for %f and %t as part of summary and attribution
A non-`nil' value should be a list of hook functions to run when a
buffer enters vm-mode. These hook functions should generally be
used to set key bindings and local variables. Mucking about in
the folder buffer is certainly possible, but it is not encouraged.
A non-`nil' value for this variable causes VM to remove empty (zero
length) folder files after saving them.
This variable's value controls VM's window usage. A value of `t'
gives VM free run of the Emacs display; it will commandeer the
entire screen for its purposes. A value of `nil' restricts VM's
window usage to the window from which it was invoked. VM will not
create, delete, or use any other windows, nor will it resize its
own window. A value that is neither `t' nor `nil' allows VM to
use other windows, but it will not create new ones, or resize or
delete the current ones.
Value should be a list of functions to be called after a message is
yanked into a `*mail*' buffer via `vm-yank-message'. When each
hook function is called, point will be at the beginning of the
yanked text and mark at the end.
This is not a VM specific variable, but rather an external
variable that VM honors so that citation packages such as
SUPERCITE can be used with VM.
