Hello,

After much anguish I have succeeded in making an imap group for an email
address. (I'd forgotten how to do it!) The group has the convoluted name
'nnimap+imap.domain-name.com:INBOX'. How do I change it to
'nnimap+domain-name:INBOX'? I have tried edited the info using 'GE', but
my edits are not accepted.

Thanks.

Colin.

Define it like so:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods
  '(nnimap "Fastmail" ;; The name.
           (nnimap-address "imap.fastmail.com")) ;; The actual server.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Then the groups will be named nnimap+Fastmail:*.

Bye,
Tassilo

Yes, I had done that originally. Your email, however, prompted me to
look again at my configuration. Entering ^ in the Group buffer, I
discovered two servers with slightly different names but pointing to the
same imap address. I had inadvertently created a second server. I
removed the unwanted server and all is now well. I am going to blame my
email provider (not yandex) for appearing to allow latitude in acceptable imap
addresses:-)

Thank you again.

Best wishes,

Colin.
