emacs wanderlust.el setup for reading kmail maildir

This is my wanderlust.el file to read kmail maildirs. You need to define every folder you want to read.

;; mode:-*-emacs-lisp-*-
;; wanderlust 
  elmo-maildir-folder-path "~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/mail"
          ;; where i store my mail

  wl-stay-folder-window t                       ;; show the folder pane (left)
  wl-folder-window-width 25                     ;; toggle on/off with 'i'
  wl-smtp-posting-server "smtp.web.de"            ;; put the smtp server here
  wl-local-domain "draketo.de"          ;; put something here...
  wl-message-id-domain "web.de"     ;; ...

file continued:

  wl-from "Arne Babenhauserheide "                  ;; my From:

  ;; note: all below are dirs (Maildirs) under elmo-maildir-folder-path 
  ;; the '.'-prefix is for marking them as maildirs
  wl-fcc ".sent-mail"                       ;; sent msgs go to the "sent"-folder
  wl-fcc-force-as-read t               ;; mark sent messages as read 
  wl-default-folder ".inbox"           ;; my main inbox 
  wl-draft-folder ".drafts"            ;; store drafts in 'postponed'
  wl-trash-folder ".trash"             ;; put trash in 'trash'
  wl-spam-folder ".gruppiert/Spam"              ;; ...spam as well
  wl-queue-folder ".queue"             ;; we don't use this

  ;; check this folder periodically, and update modeline
  wl-biff-check-folder-list '(".todo") ;; check every 180 seconds
                                       ;; (default: wl-biff-check-interval)

  ;; hide many fields from message buffers
  wl-message-ignored-field-list '("^.*:")

(provide 'private-wanderlust)

UPDATE (2012-05-07): ~/.folders

I now use a ~/.folders file, to manage my non-kmail maildir subscriptions, too. It looks like this:

.~/.local/share/mail/mgl_spam   "mgl spam" 
.~/.local/share/mail/to.arne_bab    "to arne_bab"
.inbox  "inbox" 
.trash  "Trash"
..gruppiert.directory/.inbox.directory/Freunde  "Freunde"
.drafts "Drafts"
..gruppiert.directory/.alt.directory/Posteingang-2011-09-18 "2011-09-18"

The mail in ~/.local/share/mail is fetched via fetchmail and procmail to have a really reliable mail fetching system which does not rely on a non-broken database or free space on the disk to keep working…
