Date: Thu, 15 Mar 2012 14:05:04 -0400 [thread overview] Message-ID: <CAFm0skH2soYYPMKtcKmnBPvH1+OGXwy0BJ95Dw3ZF6VA=hC9dw@mail.gmail.com> (raw) In-Reply-To: <CAFm0skHvTCBM80qrYwquT=K5wOw0AaJ+S+-xoyJGPqquDLhnQg@mail.gmail.com> [-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 2167 bytes --] * This would probably be a better "main hook" to use if you elaborate/implement my suggestion: vm-visit-folder-hook List of hook functions called just after VM visits a folder. It doesn't matter if the folder buffer already exists, this hook is run each time vm or vm-visit-folder is called interactively. It is not run after vm-mode is called. ** Then you change the mail folder into an OrgMode doc? *** I vaguely remember this, may be wrong; but, I believe VM when saved as folders, it is saved as simple text document you can then easily change into .org docs using SED/AWK/PERL/PANDOC whatever.
