Hello,

I wonder if there is a way in Gnus to reply to a message that has been
forwarded as a MIME attachment.

Any ideas?

Christoph

How does the message appear in the Gnus message? What happens when you
hit "K v" (gnus-article-view-part) on it?

I guess it would make sense to display attached messages as "full" Gnus
messages, which would let you do all the usual message things with them.
But I don't know how easy it would be to identify those attachments.

It appears inline with colored headers, so Gnus does recognize it as
a message.  But I cannot find a convenient way to open the attached
message in a separate message buffer so that message commands would work
on it.

Here is one way that does work, but it is a bit clumsy:

(1) Save the attachment to a file.

(2) Create a group from that file (G f).

(3) Open that group and reply to the message.

Huh, so it inlines by default. What's the MIME type on the attachment?

Since people can already "K i" to explicitly inline, it seems like it
would make sense to have "K v" put the message in a separate buffer in
`gnus-article-mode'.

Yes, that was going to be my original suggestion, but it's not a great
solution and I figured you'd already done that!

For some messages, you can hit `C-d' (gnus-summary-enter-digest-group)
and then select the correct sub-part in the new summary buffer that
appears.

That does work in my case.  Thanks a lot for the suggestion!
