[h-e-w] Re: AW: [Ecb-list] Problems with ECB and BBDB/Gnus


From: Jeffery B. Rancier
Subject: [h-e-w] Re: AW: [Ecb-list] Problems with ECB and BBDB/Gnus
Date: 12 Dec 2002 14:21:13 -0500
User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.2

I concur.  I also use VirtualWin,
(http://w1.457.telia.com/~u45706979/), so what I did was start gnus in
another frame, and place that frame in another virtualwin, and all
seems well.  Gnus/BBDB works like a champ.  I my *main* NTEmacs frame,
I'm running ECB, where I do all my source code editting.

Thanks for the advice.
