I'm not sure it's actually _necessary_ but emacs told me it's not there.  So I
assumed emacs needs it.

Hope it doesn't do me any harm!

Just to get this right: I'm talking about news, not about mail.  I know that
Gnus can handle both, but I use Pegasus Mail for my mail and Gnus for news.  So
I'm not sure about the "email setup" you mention.

I could "look into this", but I'm not sure what "this" is, nor how to look into
it.  Any hints from you guys?  (I could remove fakemail from the emacs 20.5 bin
directory and see if it causes problems, or I could M-x toggle-debug-on-error
and reproduce the bug.  Do you think this would help?

Thanks for you replies and thank for emacs 21.1.


Anyway, this is the mail related stuff from my .emacs:

(setq user-mail-address "address@hidden")
(setq user-full-name "Thomas Gehrlein")

;;; Note: I do not use VM
;;; vm
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/my-site-lisp/vm.elc-6.93")

(autoload 'vm-mail "vm" "Send a mail message using VM." t)
(autoload 'vm-submit-bug-report "vm" "Send a bug report about VM." t)

This is my .gnus (mainly trial and error and/or stolen from somebody else.
