Ok. I've disabled it. Now I hear no terminal bell (launching or switching folders).

New message bell is "true" in my config.

However, I don't think I have new messages in my Inbox (in either of my Inbox folders). Maybe there might be new messages in some of my other folders, some of which are subfolders of Inbox. However, I hear the terminal bell again when I switch to any of those folders (I think I hear a terminal bell when I switch to any folder).

thank you,

terminal bell sounds when I run aerc 5 months ago

From Anil Felipe Duggirala to ~rjarry/aerc-devel

Hello,
I am using aerc with my fastmail IMAP account and another company IMAP account. When I open aerc my terminal bell sounds twice. I wonder if this is normal. Is it sounding once for each account it is loading? Can I modify this behavior?
I always associate my terminal bell to a warning. Even for example when it sounds for Tab completion.
thanks again,

I wrote to this list  (~sircmpwn/aerc@lists.sr.ht), because it was the only one I could find that didn't have the word "devel" in it. I thought <~rjarry/aerc-devel@lists.sr.ht>, was only for development issues. I am just a user.

I will start using this list from now on.

I simply had to change the name to : copy-to  = Sent Items
and it worked.

help configuring IMAP sent folder 5 months ago

From Anil Felipe Duggirala to ~sircmpwn/aerc

Hello,
I have tried finding this info online but was not able to. I want to configure my IMAP sent folder for storing sent emails. When I send an email now, it tells me something like.
"mail was sent but copying to sent failed. sent does not exist"
I imagine I have not properly configured my IMAP folder to save messages to. Can someone point me in the right direction. I am using a simple IMAP account provided by my company,
thank you,

I see. Well that basically makes using aerc less useful. I now understand there is no local caching, but is there a way to store the email locally? or that is also not supported yet?

thank you, very much,

aerc is laggy on my terminal 7 months ago

From Anil Felipe Duggirala to ~sircmpwn/aerc

1. I am wondering why aerc takes time to render email and also why it is a bit slow when switching folders.
If I go to my inbox and then start scrolling down my messages, messages will start appearing as I scroll down, progressively (a [..] symbol is shown) as they load. Can aerc not download all headers in a folder by default (when it is opened) ? (and cache them later?)

2. A separate more annoying lagginess happens when I switch folder, when I press the 'J' key, the response is not fast, I cannot successively press the 'J' key many times and quickly change folder, the selected folder cursor takes some time to move from one folder to the next. That really beats the purspose of using a cli tool in my case.

What might be happening in my terminal? does anybody else experience this?
