Introduction[edit]

Wanderlust is an in-Emacs mail reading application intended for use with IMAP. It is preferred by many expert Emacs users because it has by far the best native IMAP support of any Emacs mail reading system, but it is very poorly documented (at least in English) and a challenge for naive users to install and configure.

Unfortunately, the Wanderlust home page, at [1], has not been maintained in many years. Development appears to take place almost entirely within various informal github repositories. A full list of packages needed to run Wanderlust includes:

https://github.com/wanderlust/flim

https://github.com/wanderlust/semi

https://github.com/wanderlust/apel

https://github.com/wanderlust/wanderlust

Wanderlust is not currently available in ELPA but is available in El-get (though it doesn't seem to be able to checkout the repository).

Troubleshooting[edit]

Installation from ELPA seems to be problematic, because of the flim package. See more at http://gelvaos.blogspot.com/2010/11/emacs-elpa-and-wanderlust.html
