I've recently moved to using mu4e for viewing and organising my email. I'm trying to use the function
org-store-link in a mu4e message buffer but I encounter the error:
No method for storing a link from this buffer
I looked up the problem and found someone with a similar issue: Unable to link org-mode capture items to mu4e email messages
However, the solution in this case was to add
(require 'org-mu4e) to the init.el file. I'm running mu4e version 1.5.7, and AFAIK, they have moved the link storing functions to mu4e-org.el (see https://github.com/djcb/mu/tree/master/mu4e), which is loaded by default when
mu4e-org-support has value
t (I have checked using
M-x describe-variable and this is the case). Even if I do write
(require 'mu4e-org) or
(require 'org-mu4e) in my init.el file, I get the same error.
I looked at the source code for org (https://github.com/bzg/org-mode/blob/master/lisp/ol.el, I'm using version 9.3) and used
M-x describe-symbol to print the value of
org-link-parameters, and I can see the entry for mu4e which is:
("mu4e" :follow mu4e-org-open :store mu4e-org-store-link)
I also ran the code:
(cl-loop for link in org-link-parameters with store-func do (setq store-func (org-link-get-parameter (car link) :store)) if store-func collect store-func)
in my scratch buffer, which is from the function
org-store-link-function in ol.el, and this returns
(... mu4e-org-store-link) which looks good.
So I think the problem might lie in the fact
org-store-link calls this function and returns a
nil value. But I've checked the mu4e-org source code and I think this should run correctly so long as I'm in the mu4e-header or mu4e-message major mode.
Does anyone have any idea where the problem is or any additional tests I should run?
