      I think I've to give better request.

      It's a question for i can ask here or in the mutt mailing list, i
      begun here.

      As i said i made a map in my .vimrc and what i want now is to
      remove automatically "forwarded signature" in mail ( it works
      manually) when i forward mail with mutt.

      Perhaps the problem that "au BufRead /tmp/mutt-* normal ,W"
      doesn't work for me come from the use of this autocmd from mutt
      edition,and i don't understand why.

      Thanks a lot

      Pascal

      ... I noticed something I missed before, and that is that you are using map! , which works in insert mode, rather than map , which works in normal mode.

        I noticed something I missed before, and that is that you are using
        "map!", which works in insert mode, rather than "map", which works in
        normal mode. That might explain why the autocommand is not working for
        you. See ":help map-modes".

        I don't understand what you mean by using this autocmd "from mutt
        edition". If you could explain this more fully, I might be able to
        offer better suggestions.

        You might also try this, which is a more direct approach to solving your
        original problem of deleting signatures:

        au BufRead /tmp/mutt-* silent! /^> -- $/,/^$/d

            Yes, this was the problem, thank you it works now.

            I want to say that when I began to edit the mail body with mutt
            the autocmd has to be executed when mutt starts vim (my mail
            editor in mutt) for editing the mail.

            But this problem is solved with "map", it isn't with "map!"

            Now i just have to make the map to avoid the vim error when the
            map doesn't find the search pattern.

            I'll thank you very much
