Hi all
i find that i keep copy pasting food recipes  (which i collect with org
obviously) to my email client and then sending it over to the phone to use
in the kitchen (which reminds Me really should get a emacs touch screen for
the kitchen..though my wife would get a stroke if she sees that
;-))..anyway, anyone knows how one (with almost none to zero elisp skills)
create such a function?

all i need is locate the recipe (header) and then send the header and sub
headers as text or pdf to my email

best!

You probably could use the function here https://github.com/jkitchin/jmax/blob/master/email.el#L51 for the email part after you find the heading you want to send. I think there is some code there to send a pdf too.

After getting some help from the list, I wrote a post about something
pretty close to what you want here:

http://matt.hackinghistory.ca/2015/07/15/mailing-subtrees-with-attachments/

There's a little more code there than you actually need, but some of it may
be helpful.  Happy to answer questions, too.

thx both John and Matt

I went on and used johns function he recommended (since i needed a simple
text only export) and it works flawlessly :)

John: just a quick follow up though

with that function you kindly shred "email-heading " it opens up a buffer
and you insert the email address. is it possible to have a function that
sends to a prefixed email address (ie myself :)). also can the function
then just do it in the background without even opening the buffer? since i
want to send it to a prefixed email i dont really need to see it and press
C-c C-c.

This isnt really important so if its complicated please feel free to ignore
;-)

best

Just to add to the mess, here's something I've used before -- kind of a
poor man's mail merge, to send spam (not really spam!).



(defvar my-spam-sent-names nil
 "Make sure that, even if we have to run this multiple times, people
 don't get spammed more than once.")

(defun my-spam-headline ()
  (org-narrow-to-subtree)
  (cl-flet ((mp (p) (org-entry-get nil p t)))
    (let* ((org-inhibit-logging t)
	   (file (buffer-file-name (current-buffer)))
	   (subject "Sign up for my stuff")
	   (name (mp "NAME"))
	   (to (mp "MAIL_TO"))
	   (from "Eric Abrahamsen <eric@ericabrahamsen.net>")
	   (salutation (mp "SALUTATION"))
	   (body (replace-regexp-in-string "XXXX" salutation letter-text t))) 
      (when (equal "PITCH" (mp "TODO"))
	(unless (member name my-spam-sent-names)
	  (save-excursion
	    (org-mime-compose body 'html file (concat name " <" to ">")
			      subject `((from . ,from)))
	    (message-send-and-exit)) 
	  (push name my-spam-sent-names)
	  (org-todo "WAITING")))))
  (setq org-map-continue-from (point-max))
  (widen)) 

(defun my-spam-tree ()
  (interactive)
  (let ((letter-text "long string with XXXXs in it."))
    (org-map-entries #'my-spam-subtree "TODO=\"PITCH\"" 'tree)))
