2. Let's get started

Mew has the following five modes:

To start Mew, you can choose one from the followings:

  1. `M-x mew' :: Execute Mew. If `mew-auto-get' is `t', messages stored in your spool are fetched to the +inbox folder and messages in the +inbox folder are listed up in Summary mode. If `mew-auto-get' is `nil', simply list up messages in the inbox folder.

  2. `C-uM-x mew' :: Perform `M-x mew' thinking that `mew-auto-get' is reversed.

  3. `M-x mew-send' :: Enter Draft mode for message composing.

  4. `C-xm' :: Enter Draft mode for message composing if `mail-user-agent' is configured.

When Mew is executed on Text Emacs, a shape of "/\\ - \\/", which stands for Mew, spins. Two cute cats appear on the cover page on XEmacs.

When fetching messages stored in your spool, you may be required to input your password. Before you type your password, carefully see if either the following conditions is satisfied:

If both conditions are not satisfied, don't input password. Otherwise, your password would be wire-tapped.

If Mew is not executed, see whether or not both Mew and IM is installed and/or whether or not the following configurations are put into a site configuration file or your ".emacs".

(autoload 'mew "mew" nil t)
(autoload 'mew-send "mew" nil t)
(setq mew-mail-domain-list '("your mail domain"))
(setq mew-icon-directory "a directory where Mew's image files are installed.")
(autoload 'mew-user-agent-compose "mew" nil t)
(if (boundp 'mail-user-agent)
    (setq mail-user-agent 'mew-user-agent))
(if (fboundp 'define-mail-user-agent)
