Is there any scope for an option to convert all replies to plain
before editing rather than maintaining the HTML structure imposed by
less sophisticated email clients that other people use?

That would be good but of course it's not always possible to do it.

Sorry to reply to myself, but the ideal solution would be to allow
editor hooks or embedding, i.e. a way to use a configurable external
editor for messages without a lot of manual saving and reloading. This
has been requested as an enhancement more than once (I for one asked for
it years ago) and other mailers have it, e.g. Kmail, but I guess it's
not a high priority.

Personally I've always felt uncomfortable with the idea of a mailer
duplicating a lot of editor funcionality when there are perfectly good
editors out there that people already use.

or something else????

All I see there is code, but the names are suggestive. Maybe someone was
listening after all :-)


It was working at one time, ?recent? changes to evo have functionally
broken it.  My understanding of the way it worked was -> invocation
caused startup of $EDITOR, evo waited on $EDITOR to close, evo parsed
tmp file written by $EDITOR and populated composer window appropriately.
Currently, evo invocation of $EDITOR does not appear to wait for $EDITOR

Actually, I should expound on this.  I believe setting $EDITOR to gvim
doesn't work, because gvim by default forks, so evo thinks $EDITOR is
done when it isn't.  Setting $EDITOR to "gvim -f" results in invocation
failure.  It may work as is for emacs.( i'll have to re-verify this )
