to be available soon. Presumably one could specify OOo Writer in such a
future version, and suffer the consequences.

We have had an "external editor" plugin for some time now, though it
only works for plain text messages and needs some usability love.  Visit
Edit -> Plugins -> External Editor -> Configuration.  You can tell it to
automatically launch a text editor every time you compose a message, or
you can launch it manually from the File menu of the Compose Message

When you close your preferred editor, the Compose Message window is
populated with the message content from the editor.

kmail also has a preferred text editor option. It will invoke OOwriter, but
doesn't accept the formatted output.

The feature set I use from the word processor is very limited, but addictive
to use. It may be simpler for an email client enhance its formatting
features rather than provide the interface to a word processor.

For the record my formatting feature set includes: auto completion,
correction, capitalization, grammar as well as spelling check and paragraph
styles. Paragraph styles include fonts and line to line spacing.

I don't have a good feel for the complexity involved with say paragraph
styles and grammar check. If these features were added to Evo for example,
would that make Evo a word processor? Heboland
