Hi

Some of my groups look like this

*          0: nnimap+UCMgmail:MBOX

I am not sure what the star indicates. I thought unread messages, but
when I visit the group I don't see any unread message.

Does it mean it contains ticked messages?

Regards

Uwe Brauer

If I have groups that contain ticked messages, they show up with a star,
so I think the answer is "yes".

Groups with unread messages are shown with number of unread messages and
in bold for me.


  Best regards,

See `gnus-group-line-format' and (info "(gnus) Group Line Specification").
Most probably, it is:

  %M    Only marked articles (character, "*" or " ")

Perhaps these are groups you set to be always visible in the Group buffer?


Use the G p or the G c command to edit group parameters of a group. (G
p presents you with a Lisp-based interface, G c presents you with a
Customize-like interface.

add or set (visible . t)

When I see this, it means that I have a summary buffer open for the
group already.

That does happen, but the star is then placed between the article
count and the group name by default.

It doesn't for me but I guess that's because I've customized
gnus-group-line-format.  So, looking at that variable, the * (at the
start of the line, based on the default setting of that variable) would
seem to be indicating that the group has only marked articles?

I'm not sure I understand what that means in practice.
