Date: Thu, 15 Mar 2012 17:34:06 +0000 [thread overview] Message-ID: <44B0EAE8544C834188E8790873CDE1CC3EAF76@ARCEXCHANGE.arc.local> (raw) In-Reply-To: <CAF-1L2TUEigMSrVp5LQuN_tiy0y-Tn6A-L55L38=3e5=KCUYrg@mail.gmail.com> Hi! You could try doing something with org-capture and the org-capture-templates so that you would be creating your email from the start as an org tree entry under the appropriate location. You can override the org-capture-before-finalize hook (see org-capture.el) to send the mail when you're done typing in the indirect buffer and hit C-c C-c (or org-capture-finalize). I have org-capture set up so I can use it immediately from anywhere in Emacs with the C-cc keys: (define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'org-capture) That combined with a suitable template and the hook override might give you what you're looking for. Hope this helps!
