Send MIME object to pipe?

when using mh-e to read MIME mail, i'd like to be able to pipe the body
of a MIME object to a shell command.

Looking at the K- map, there appear to be options to save, view,
view-inline, etc, but not to send the object's body to a pipe.

am i missing something?
has someone added this to their private copy already? :-)

thanks,

d

That sounds useful. The closest thing, I guess, is `K e'
(`mh-display-with-external-viewer') but the body part is passed as an
argument, not as stdin (which is what you want). Could you add an RFE
for that? Patches, of course, are always welcome ;-).

From: header field

Sergey helped me with use the .mtstailor file to use the "localname:"
entry to produce
the domain name for outgoing mail's "From: " header field.

For example:
localname: gmail.com

I think I used to be able to also specify a username difference from
the my host account name.  In particular I want to specify my
gmail.com user name, so that replies will go to it.

There should be an easy way to find it, but seaching for "From: " or
"name" in the faqs is not enough to pull it out, or rather it pulls to
much.

Any advice on this welcome.

Thanks,

One solution is to add the desired From header field to your
components/replcomps files, or use MH-E's identity stuff.
