Subject: Picking up mail already opened elsewhere

Message-ID: <> (raw)


If I fetch new mail (let's say from my Gmail INBOX, which is
the most common thing) then I've noticed the following
situation (and am surprised I didn't notice it long ago).

If I have already opened the mail on the Gmail web interface,
gnus won't fetch it, since it runs a "get-new-news" function
and apparently, at least to IMAP, that mail is old news, not
new news.

Is there a way around this (aside from totally avoiding the
web interface)? In other words can I open the mail on the web
and then still get Gnus to fetch it?

I can't quite work it out as yet. If I quit Gnus and restart,
the mail comes in, so I'm trying to see how that functions.

Mahalo for any insights,
