Thanks for the link! I'll try to create a patch with a couple of additional
stylesets when I'm back on a better internet connection.

How to see all recipient emails? a month ago

From Kenneth Flak to ~rjarry/aerc-discuss

Hi list,

How can I configure aerc to display all the recipients of an email in
the email view? Right now, the string of email addresses beyond the 
first one or two are truncated, which is mostly OK, but sometimes very
inconvenient...

Best,
Kenneth

kanagawa color theme a month ago

From Kenneth Flak to ~rjarry/aerc-discuss

Hi all,

I recently discovered the beautiful kanagawa color theme for neovim
https://github.com/rebelot/kanagawa.nvim

and decided to roll my own aerc version:
https://gitlab.com/kflak/dots/-/blob/main/aerc/stylesets/aerc_kanagawa?ref_type=heads

It also made me wonder if it would be an idea to create some kind of
styleset resource, where people could upload their favorites, preferably
with screenshots?

Best,
Kenneth

Hi Bence,

Would be very happy to, but I have no clue how to use those tools, nor
how to make sense of the data generated. Should I just run the perf
command while doing the stuff in notmuch that takes a long time? What to
do with the generated data file?

Slow notmuch on change to folder a month ago

From Kenneth Flak to ~rjarry/aerc-discuss

Continuing on a bit the search discussion, I'm playing around more with
notmuch now, and I'm wondering if this is something on my side, or if
it's a problem with the implementation of notmuch, but notmuch takes a
very long time to load the mail lists on change to folder, or when
returning from a query. Is this to be expected, or is there something I
can do to rectify this?

Running on Arch Linux with a pretty straight-forward setup:

[proton-notmuch]
source         = notmuch://~/mail
maildir-store = ~/mail
query-map      = ~/.config/aerc/map.conf
outgoing       = smtps://kennethflak%40protonmail.com:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@127.0.0.1:1025

Very very cool! Although, for some reason I'm getting quite sluggish
response when changing folders in the notmuch tab...

Huh, how? Would love to know more about how you accomplish this kind of
magic!

Try :filter -f or :search -f. This will search email addresses.

Thanks everyone for the helpful suggestions!

A few things that are starting to add up:
1. no possibility to forward emails automatically, so when I do make the
change to another provider I still have to keep the protonmail tab open
for years to come just in case...
2. with the latest update I keep getting a notification that my client
can't connect to bridge, even when I've turned off every single
