Adam, thanks for the info on the message-fcc-handler-function. I'll try
to get something working based on this. There are two questions of
1. where should the file be saved? I'm thinking of a new setting in
$NOTMUCH_CONFIG, along the lines of sentmail_path=...
Should there be a default if this is not set, e.g. a subdirectory "sent"
of the directory given in the config variable "path"?
2. of course, filenames need to be unique. Do we want/have to follow
the maildir file naming conventions listed at
or is it enough to use the Emacs lisp make-temp-file?
