I’ve started using Gnus again in recent weeks and months. One problem I have is that I enter the INBOX group using
C-u RET or issue
/ o inside the group to see all the mail in my INBOX, read and unread, but all I get are 17 mails. I know some are missing.
When I use the Server Buffer via
^ and enter the INBOX, I get 50 mails. This includes all the missing mails.
I sometimes suspect that it has to do with me reading mails on the phone, too.
Do you understand what’s going on? Many years ago I had decided that the Gnus Agent was a problem and disable it setting
nil. (My entire Gnus config is available online.)
I removed the newsrc files (
.newsrc-dribble, their backup files), started Gnus again, and all I seem to have lost was the read marks. As I had all groups “read” that wasn’t a problem, a quick “catch-up” on the groups in questions solved that; then I went into my INBOX and all the mails were there. Let’s see whether it degenerates again.
