I frequently compose e-mails as subtrees of my org files. I'd like to be
able to e-mail the contents of these subtrees, maybe by first viewing the
subtree in an indirect buffer.

My org files look like this:

* e-mails
  ** note to person about blah
     To: person@blah.com
     Subject: ADD people 7 times more likely to be creative
     --text follows this line--

     Dear Person,

     Blah blah blah.

     Best,
     Peter

I can open the subtree in an indirect buffer, but I can't e-mail the
contents as they appear because I get "Invalid header line."

If I delete the org-header, I can successfully send the e-mail. But then I
need to undelete the header afterward.

How can I send the contents of a subtree as an e-mail without first having
to delete the header?

Thanks,
Peter

Checkout the `org-mime-subtree' subtree command.  It converts the
current subtree to an email, pulling email headers from subtree
properties, specifically

MAIL_SUBJECT or subtree heading -> subject
MAIL_TO -> TO
MAIL_CC -> CC
MAIL_BCC -> BCC
MAIL_FMT -> determines the format of the email (e.g., org, ascii or html)

so your example above would be

** note to person about blah
   :PROPERTIES:
   :MAIL_TO:  person@blah.com
   :MAIL_SUBJECT: ADD people 7 times more likely to be creative
   :END:
   Dear Person,

   Blah blah blah.

   Best,
   Peter

Cheers,

Would it be possible to

a) save this mail into a temporary folder and
b) send it with thunderbird

automatically?

Would be very nice.

You could of course write any buffer to a file, and if a specific format
is required I would imagine that there exists a command to write the
email buffer in that format.  Beyond that I think this is a Thunderbird
question.
