Hi Bob,

How do you send mail to mailing lists with BBDB?  Do you use a templating
tool?  Also, how do you start a phone call?

I am not sure about the question. If I send to an email list, it's an
address in BBDB. So I ``invoke'' BBDB (M-x bbdb) and give it the name of
the entry (say org-mode). That's analogous to send to a person: If you
remember the name (or part of the name), you find the entry, send then
compose an email ("m") on the entry.

Tab-completion may help.

If the question is: how do I send an email to all members of my chess
club or drinking buddies? If you have added some field to persons of
that circle (like "bridgeclub" or "drinkingbuddy", then you invoke bbdb
with that match, and then there is a possibility to send an email to
/all/ members of a matching list.


For phoning, I am not sure. I think there is (or was) a functionality to
initiate a call (probably with skype or ekiga or some such) but I never
used that.

Basically, for phoning, for me it's more like a rolodex, but a fast and
big one

There is also helm-bbdb, wich is very useful
(https://github.com/emacs-helm/helm-bbdb). For Gnus I have defined this:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(require 'helm-bbdb)

(setq message-completion-alist '(("^\\(Newsgroups\\|Followup-To\\|Posted-To\\|Gcc\\):" . message-expand-group)
                                 ("^\\(Resent-\\)?\\(To\\|B?Cc\\):" . helm-bbdb-expand-name)
                                 ("^\\(Reply-To\\|From\\|Mail-Followup-To\\|Mail-Copies-To\\):" . helm-bbdb-expand-name)
                                 ("^\\(Disposition-Notification-To\\|Return-Receipt-To\\):"
                                  . helm-bbdb-expand-name)))
#+end_src

And to insert an address at point (for example, in Org, in the `mail_to'
property):

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun my-insert-mail-address-helm-bbdb (_candidate)
  (save-window-excursion
    (helm-bbdb--view-person-action-1 (helm-bbdb--marked-contacts))
    (call-interactively 'bbdb-mail-address)
    (kill-buffer))
  (yank))

(add-to-list 'helm-bbdb-actions '("Insert mail address" . my-insert-mail-address-helm-bbdb))
#+end_src

Regards,

Juan Manuel

I think all packages fulfill your requirements. So I would say it depends
on how many contacts you are managing. I have some experience with
org-contacts, and I find it very convenient and straightforward. It is also
very convenient to just use org-mode, i.e. a plain text file, for your
contacts. Every contact is a headline and you can add any kind of property
or tag etc. you want. Also anniversaries get added to the Agenda. You can
very easily jump to the right contact, using imenu or swoop/swiper (I use
`SPC j i ` in Spacemacs. So if you have less than say 300 contacts (I have
really no clue about the number of contacts that will still work smoothly),
then depending on how die-hard you are, I would recommend to start with
org-contacs. You can use org-vcard to import contacts, and org-vcard claims
to support exports too but I did not test that yet.
Anyway, I think you won't loose much time with setting up org-contacts and
from then you can slowly check out and study the other options.

I do not use Emacs for email yet, but org-contacts claims to support most
of Emacs its mail-readers.

If you enjoy tweaking your setup and study a little more then maybe
directly use BBDB or EBDB. EBDB's goal is to be a modern BBDB and I guess
the main developer does a very nice job. I have no experience with these
databases, because I think they are overkill (currently) for my usecase.

If the mailing list has a specific address, just create an entry in bbdb
for that list.  If the mailing list is a collection of individuals in
your bbdb, you can add a mail-alias entry to each member of the mailing
list with the name for that list.

I use the latter all the time for small research and study groups at
work.

There is bbdb-dial, and I have it set up to call a function
which places a call through Google Hangouts. Of course Google
is deleting that feature so I will have to figure out how to
make it use Google Voice.

Admittedly it's an unnecessary feature but I just have fun
making calls with Emacs instead of fishing around for my cell
phone.

Phone call may be started by using Android/Replicant/LineageOS devices
and Termux tools' https://termux.com command: `termux-telephony-call`

I am adding some of functions I am using, but cannot help in polishing
the package for you. If you need some more functions from here, I will
send you.

You can then send termux command `termux-telephony-call` and initiate
the call on Android/Replicant/LineageOS devices.

For sending SMS I am heavily using KDEConnect, but you may use termux
to send SMS by loading older library (ask me), or by using ShellMS
application.

Jean

> Hi Bob,

> How do you send mail to mailing lists with BBDB?

I have complete mailing list system in Emacs that uses the
database. Sending to a list without recording who received which email
is leading sooner or later to nonsensical situations that ruin
relations with people. When somebody wish to setup email, and has
patience, I will help with installation until it starts working and
until the user becomes able to create and send first email series.

One has to track which person received which email at what time.

Imagine the timeline of people being entered into any kind of a
database, in January there are 30 people, they need to receive maybe
2-3 emails named A, B, and C each week, but in February there are
other 22 people who need to receive 2-3 emails A, B, C and the first
30 people from January have to receieve emails D, E, F, G in
February.

I am including here the dump of the `emails` table in the database and
if other tables are required, I will send it.

The `mailings` table below is tracking which person received which
email at what time. Only by defining the periods between emails and
tracking emails in the database one can make a series of follow-up
emails that are logical and useful in sales or relation building.

We sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars by using this
system. There is no need for remote databases or keeping contact lists
on remote servers.

Emails are dispatched to the local computer's queue, and then
forwarded to remote SMTP server. Currently I am using `msmtp` to
forward bulk emails.

That may be convenient for friends or family, but is not a good idea
if such a contact database is to enlarge due to marketing actions.

People who collect leads and manage relations with many other people
must have straight way to manage contacts, and similar to well known
CRM systems such as SugarCRM or others. In fact contact management
could be managed by external program and database accessed through
Emacs. Though I do both with Emacs. And I like to access database from
shell as I do not use only Emacs as editor. As the database is
liberated from editor it allows access through any software or
programming language.

More important is how fast are contacts coming into the database. If
there are just 100 per year, then that will work well.

But marketing action of 23 hours have provided me like 1700 contacts,
so there would be no way that I ever keep up with text or hand
work. That requires automated insertion of contacts into the database,
and I use local database. Online lead capture is sent PGP encrypted by
email and emails are automatically processed and leads entered into
the local database. Placing contacts online is insecure IMHO, no
matter what is advertised about it.

I am attaching `rcd-vcard.el` that uses PostgreSQL database and my
schemas to export vCards that work nicely with
Android/LineageOS/Replicant devices. Package alone will not
work. Functions may be useful for some people to modify them as they
wish. If somebody wish to really install my system, I will be helpful
in private chat or email and guide person until it becomes functional.
