Re: feature requests: edit message, pipe to ext. program

a "pipe to" menu option to pipe an email to an external program,

It is in cvs already. We just need to get 2.3.1 out
of the door.


Yes, this is something that we should implement - and is really
not a difficult matter. At the moment, I usually move the message
to draftbox, edit it there and move it back - but I agree, it is
a cumbersome procedure.

 Another problem(s) with that procedure that would be nice
to address in the implementation of the new feature is that
using the draftbox appears to delete the old message and
create a new one, with a new date and such.  It would be
nice be able to add a note to the original message, leaving
the date and other attributes alone.  On the other hand,
that may be a hint as to a very simple way to implement it.
Even with my meager skills I might be able figure out how
to get Balsa to carry out the above procedue behind the scenes.

note saying "do not process until Friday" or

 Less generally useful, but maybe quite handy
