I want to try to do as much as I can within emacs, the more I use it
the more I discover new things. 

My switch from vim to emacs was not
easy at first, but suddenly I was doing things with far better
efficiency within emacs than with vim. (YMMV)

So with email, in mutt, I choose to reply to someone, then have to
jump to the emacs window, write my reply then go back and confirm and
send. If I need to correct something, I have to repeat that. 

I realize that its not going to gain me much but still its at least
worth trying.
