;; Usage documentation
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;; General description of what rmail-extras does:
;;
;; rmail-extras.el modifies the behavior of RMAIL to allow reading mail from
;; remote inboxes (using ange-ftp).  It was already possible to read from
;; multiple inboxes (most people I talk to didn't know that).
;;
;; rmail-extras.el also modifies the "time" package to enable raising
;; flags for each individual inbox that contain mail.  Previously it
;; was only possible to display a flag indicating mail had arrived in
;; just one given inbox.
;;
;; 
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;; Changes to behavior of RMAIL:
;;
;; Let us illustrate the above by an example:
;; 
;; Imagine you are reading mail on some account with the user name `trey'.
;; You also have an account with the user name `sam', and you'd like to read
;; mail from both accounts while only logged into the `trey' account.  Sure,
;; you could take the easy way out and use a .forward file, but it's not as
;; hip.
;;
;; You acquire this package, and put the line
;;
;;   (require 'rmail-extras)
;;
;; in your .emacs.  Now what?
;; All you do is change the variable 'rmail-inbox-list to contain the file
;; names of your two inboxes: 
;;
;;   (setq rmail-inbox-list '("/usr/spool/mail/trey" 
;;                            "/sam@comp1.berkeley.edu:/usr/spool/mail/sam"))
;;
;; And you're up and running.
;; One caveat, the above line must be evaluated *before* running RMAIL.  If
;; for some reason you want/need to run RMAIL before the above line, use
;; this solution instead: 
;;
;;   (rmail-update-inbox-list '("/usr/spool/mail/trey" 
;;                              "/sam@comp1.berkeley.edu:/usr/spool/mail/sam"))
;;
;; Now when you run rmail emacs will prompt you for a password for the `sam'
;; account (ange-ftp needs it to log in and get access to the file).
;; Luckily, ange-ftp is smart enough to keep track of the password so you
;; only have to enter it once per emacs session.
;; 
;;

;; Changes made to "time" package:
;;
;; What is the "time" package?
;; To quote the documentation:
;;
;;   Facilities to display current time/date and a new-mail indicator
;;   in the Emacs mode line.  The single entry point is `display-time'.
;;
;; 
;; How does rmail-extras.el modify the "time" package?
;; 
;; The changes are redefinitions of:
;;   o display-time-filter           (function)
;;   o display-time-string-forms     (variable)
;;   o display-time-file-nonempty-p  (function)
;;
;; To use this package, simply run the function 'display-time:
;;
;;   M-x display-time     ; by hand
;;         or
;;   (display-time)       ; in .emacs
;;
;; This results in changing the mode-line to display the current time and a
;; flag indicating new mail has arrived.  You can modify this display one of
;; two ways:
;;
;;   1) set options
;;   2) redefine the variable 'display-time-string-forms
;;
;; The first way is easier to understand, the second allows you real
;; control over the format.
;; 
;; The options you have available to change are:
;; 
;; o display-time-display-time         - non-nil <==> time is displayed
;; o display-time-24hr-format          - non-nil <==> time displayed in 24hr format
;; o display-time-am/pm                - non-nil <==> "am" or "pm" in 12hr mode
;; o display-time-day-and-date         - non-nil <==> day and date are displayed
;; o display-time-display-mail-flag    - non-nil <==> new-mail flag(s) displayed
;; o display-time-use-frame-title-bar  - non-nil <==> display on frame title bar
;; o show-inbox-specific-strings       - non-nil <==> new-mail flag for each inbox
;; o beep-for-mail                     - non-nil <==> beep when new mail arrives
;; o display-time-interval             - seconds between updates of time in mode line
;;
;; If you wish to redefine the variable 'display-time-string-forms you should
;; read the documentation on the variable (C-h v display-time-string-forms).
;; rmail-extras.el doesn't change how it functions, but it adds a few new
;; keywords involving new mail:
;;
;;   o mail                     
;;        this is `t' when you have mail in at least one inbox
;;
;;   o mail1, mail2, ..., mailn
;;        each one is set to `t' when the corresponding inbox has mail
;;        for example, if 'rmail-inbox-list is set to
;;            ("/usr/spool/mail/trey" "/usr/spool/mail/sam")
;;        and you have mail in `trey', but not in `sam'
;;        then `mail1' will be `t' and `mail2' will be `nil'
;;        order is what counts here.
;;
;;   o mail-flag-list
;;        this is just a list of all the mail1, mail2, .., mailn values
;;        in the above example, `mail-flag-list' would be
;;            (t nil)
;;        again, order is what counts.
;;
;; In the example above, by default, the mode line would look like:
;; 
;;     8:05 MAIL in (trey)
;;
;; By setting 'show-inbox-specific-strings to nil it would look like:
;; 
;;     8:05 MAIL
;;
;; By setting 'yes-mail-string-list to ("YERT" "--Sam--") you get:
;; 
;;     8:05 MAIL in (YERT)
;;
;; Having mail in both inboxes results in:
;; 
;;     8:05 MAIL in (YERT, --Sam--)
;;
;; You get the idea.
;;
;; All changes to the variables are incorporated dynamically.
;; Use the function 'display-time-update to change the display.
;;
;;
;; By default, the strings used in 'yes-mail-string-list are created from the
;; list of inboxes.  An local inbox results in a flag that is the name of the
;; file without the directory.  A remote inbox results in a flag that is the
;; name of the machine (the reasoning is that many people have the same user
;; name on different accounts).  For example, if 'rmail-inbox-list is:
;;
;;   ("/usr/spool/mail/trey" "/sam@comp1.berkeley:/usr/mail/sam" "/dev/null")
;;
;; then 'yes-mail-string-list will default to:
;;
;;   ("trey" "comp1.berkeley" "null")
;;
;; The 'no-mail-string-list defaults to a list of null strings ("").
;;
;;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;; Quirks/Problems:
;; 
;; o it doesn't beep each time new mail arrives, only when you get the first
;;   piece of unread mail
;;
;; o should work with Emacs up to 19.33 (starting at ???)
;;
;; NOTE: This obsoletes frame-status-line.el  (if you have it)
;; 

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;; To do (maybe):
;;
;; o add option to use filename on remote inboxes
;; o get RMAIL to send mail from different inboxes to different RMAIL files
;; o once the above is working, get mail flags for the different RMAIL files
