Gnus Manual. Node: SOUP Replies

PREVSOUP Groups UPSOUP next SOUP Replies

Just using nnsoup won't mean that your postings and mailings end up in SOUP reply packets automagically. You have to work a bit more for that to happen.

The nnsoup-set-variables command will set the appropriate variables to ensure that all your followups and replies end up in the SOUP system.

In specific, this is what it does:

(setq message-send-news-function 'nnsoup-request-post)
(setq message-send-mail-function 'nnsoup-request-mail)

And that's it, really. If you only want news to go into the SOUP system you just use the first line. If you only want mail to be SOUPed you use the second.
