Address book

The file `~/.addresses' is a simple address book for Wanderlust. Make address file `~/.addresses', and edit to suit your requirement.

The data written in `~/.addresses' are used for address completion under draft editing mode. Furthermore, they are used when showing names in summary display mode. You can safely skip this section, if you don't want to customize address completion and summary display. It is possible to add/change/remove addresses from `~/.addresses' in summary buffer after Wanderlust is invoked.

The format is very simple. Like this.

# Lines begin with `#' are comment.
# Empty lines are ignored
# Format of each line:
# email-address  "nickname "realname"
teranisi@gohome.org            "Yuuichi"      "Yuuichi Teranishi"
foo@bar.gohome.org             "Mr. Foo"    "John Foo"
bar@foo.gohome.org             "Mr. Bar"    "Michael Bar"

One line defines one persons description.

Actually, in default setup, nickname is used in summary-mode and realname is used in draft preparation mode. This behavior is better understood if you try it and confirmed the function first. You can write and try a small definition, so you will know the idea of the address book before writing a big one.

And, if MH alias file is specified in variable wl-alias-file, it is used as an address information in the draft preparation mode.

If variable wl-use-ldap is non-nil (initial setting is nil), address completion in draft mode uses LDAP information.

If you use LDAP, you have to set wl-ldap-server, wl-ldap-port and wl-ldap-base properly. If your emacs does not have LDAP feature as built-in feature (Currently only XEmacs can have built-in LDAP feature), you have to set command exec @env{PATH} to the program @command{ldapsearch}.
