      Hi
      I just submitted a bug request in Mozilla (Netscape) asking to be able
      to configure an external editor for plain-text mail messages.
      I don't know if it will be accepted or not.
      Please vote for it if you like the idea:

      http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=166100

      Summary: allow for the use of an external editor in (text only)
      mail composition
      Product: MailNews
      Version: other
      Platform: All
      OS/Version: All
      Status: UNCONFIRMED
      Severity: enhancement
      Priority: --
      Component: Composition
      AssignedTo: ducarroz@...
      ReportedBy: jlanus@...
      QAContact: esther@...


      We nerds have our favourite editors, mine is vim.
      Each one of us is most productive while using the usual editor.
      It would be fine to be able to select in preferences a program to run into the
      mail composition window.
      Also, commercial implementations might build on this feature to further
      customize their versions with specialized editors.

          Please note that your bug (166100) has already been marked a duplicate
          of bug 13474:
          http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13474

          The thread is excellent and it appears mostly (partially?) solved
          beginning March this year.

          Anyone here tried the patches?
