I've been using re-alpine or its predecessors since the pine 2.x days, but
there's plenty I still don't know about it, and I'm hoping this is one of
I've never been able to find any way to make re-alpine auto-select OR
allow me to specify a role to use when replying to a message that is part
of a digest.
I'm subscribed to the digest version of several mailing lists. One
example is the "openldap-technical" mailing list, which is managed by
The digest comes to me with From, To, and Reply-To set as
Subject: openldap-technical Digest, Vol 48, Issue 9
The messages are attachments in a Multipart/Digest.
I have several roles set up, in particular:
LIT:pattern="/NICK=Tim.Mooney@.../PARTIC=Tim.Mooney@,kickstart-list@,networker@,openldap-technical@...,redhat-sysadmin-list@,rpm-devel@...,rhn-satellite-users@...,cups@.../FLDTYPE=EMAIL" action="/ROLE=1/FROM=Tim Mooney <Tim.Mooney@...>/SIG=.signature.ndsu/RTYPE=NC/FTYPE=NC/CTYPE=NO"
In other words, a big list of participants that should match the From
(or To) for the digest.
The problem is that when I use V to view an attachment and then select one
of the messages, if I Reply, my role is not selected for the reply. This
is true even if the actual message that I'm replying to has
openldap-technical in the To: or Cc:.
I have "alternate-role-menu" and "no-alternate-compose-menu" set. If
there are other settings that might be interacting with roles & digests
please let me know and I'll happily share those settings too.
In a pinch I would even be Ok with manually selecting the right role
using #, but I can only do that for the overall digest -- I can't select the
individual (attached) message in the digest to reply to.
Is there something I'm missing, or is it just not possible to auto-select
the reply role for an attachment in a digest?
