   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.
