Where can I find real examples of gnus configuration for mail on
windows?

Googling has found some suggested configs, some aimed at gmail, or
imap, but none that show actual examples of using gnus for pop3 mail
sending on  windows.

The retreival part is pretty simple and I have that working.

Reall exmples that show how to connect to smtp server that will relay
mail, authenticastion and so forth; are what I'd like to see.

For sending, it is smtp you want to look for, not pop3.  pop3 & imap are
fetching protocols.

You should probably look at the Message info manual.  Variables to
consider setting are:

message-send-mail-function
send-mail-function
smtpmail-mail-address
smtpmail-smtp-server
smtpmail-stream-type
smtpmail-smtp-service
user-mail-address

I have the first two set to 'smtpmail-send-it and the rest are dependent
on your email provider.

You can't send email via POP3; POP3 is for downloading mail only.

You need SMTP to send.

If you don't have a local smtpd (I guess that's the norm on Windows?),
then sending can set up with something like this in your .gnus:

  (setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it
        smtpmail-default-smtp-server "YOUR-SMTP-HOST")

and in your .authinfo.gpg you put something like:

  machine YOUR-SMTP-HOST login YOUR-SMTP-LOGIN password YOUR-SMTP-PASSWORD

I think that should do the trick?


  Best regards,

    Adam
