Many of the answers in this document suggest that you add code to your VM configuration file.
VM reads its configuration file at startup and whenever the function
vm-load-init-file' (by default bound to "L" in VM
buffers) is called. The configuration file is named, by default,
"~/.vm", but the name of the configuration file can be
changed by setting the variable `
vm-init-file'. VM does
not come with a default configuration file -- if you want one you'll
have to create it yourself.

Yes, by adding this lisp code to your .emacs file:
(setq mail-default-reply-to "email@example.com") (setq user-full-name "Your Name") (setq user-mail-address "firstname.lastname@example.org")
Under GNU Emacs, place the following in your .emacs:
(define-key menu-bar-tools-menu [rmail] '("Read Mail" . vm)) (define-key-after menu-bar-tools-menu [smail] '("Send Mail" . vm-mail) 'rmail)
Thanks to Paul D. Smith for this one.
Under XEmacs, you can do something like this to set the Apps|Send Mail menu item to use VM;
(setq mail-user-agent 'vm-user-agent) (setq toolbar-mail-reader 'vm)
Alternatively, you can:
M-x customize Customize group: toolbar Mail Reader: vm
Add the following to your VM configuration file:
(setq vm-mutable-windows nil)
There are variables which can be set to avoid the "frame-based" file
chooser when `
vm-visit-folder' is invoked from a menu (via the
mouse). The variables (with their default values) are:
(setq vm-frame-per-completion t) (setq vm-frame-per-composition t) (setq vm-frame-per-edit t) (setq vm-frame-per-folder t) (setq vm-frame-per-help nil) (setq vm-frame-per-summary nil) (setq vm-mutable-frames t) (setq vm-raise-frame-at-startup t)
In the current version of VM, setting
vm-mutable-frames' to `
nil' disables all
frame creation; in older versions it may be necessary to set each
vm-frame-per-' variable to `
nil' as well.
Although doing so is strongly discouraged, you can add the following to your VM configuration file:
(add-hook 'vm-quit-hook 'vm-expunge-folder)
