Because I initiated this thread, let me clarify what I had in mind.
Most text editorscan be used to compose email text. A writer will choose
a text editor because it usually has more features available than a
One he composes his email in the text editor, the writer may then copy
it to his mail manager for transmission. It's a two step process.
If, for instance, you want to "clean up your copy" which may contain
awkward spacing and formatting marks such as <>| =20 and so on,
the best tool is a good text editor. The clean text can then be copied
to your mail manager.
Jim believes that is the best way to go. I prefer to compose email
directly in Eudora. Neither way is right or wrong, just different.
