Thanks for the reply. This led me to a good solution: I start Vim from
within my mail client as "vim --servername mail", which enables me to
open files there from within any other vim instance. For that I added
the following to my .vimrc:
exec '!view --servername mail --remote-tab "%"'
nmap <leader>m :call OpenOnVimServerMail()<cr>
Possibly there is a more elegant solution, but it works.
