Thank you for your message (Sat, 14 Sep 2002 09:57:12 GMT), in
which, among other things, you wrote:

Well, I've tested it and, unfortunately, it doesn't work for
me. I don't understand why it doesn't work, since your
suggestion seems to be appropriate (given my limited knowledge
of lisp).

I mean the presentation of my mail folders in VM (View Mail).

On the basis of your suggestion I made some tests without
success. I always have to do `M-x set variable RET
show-trailing-whitespace RET nil RET' once per buffer to do
the trick. May be there are other suggestions?

Thank you
